10400 South in South Jordan Closed for Six Months

10400 South is closed to east-west traffic at Bangerter Highway to accommodate interchange construction

Drivers in southwestern Salt Lake County are advised to plan ahead for a six-month closure of 10400 South in South Jordan. The road will be closed to east-west traffic at Bangerter Highway through November while crews construct a new freeway-style interchange.

During the closure, Bangerter Highway will remain open in both directions, and the traffic signal at 10400 South will be removed permanently. In addition, right turns both on and off 10400 South will still be open.

“This area is really growing, and that’s why we’re so focused on converting each of these intersections into interchanges,” said Marwan Farah, UDOT Bangerter Interchanges project manager. “Closing 10400 South means we can build the interchange more quickly and safely, at a lower cost to taxpayers.”

Local drivers have several options to get around the closure, including 11400 South and 9800 South. Designated detours will have signs posted along the routes, and engineers will adjust the timing of stop lights to accommodate the increased traffic. More information on the closure area and alternate routes is available at the project website, udot.utah.gov/bangerter10400south.    

The Bangerter Interchanges project coordinated closely with the cities and local businesses when planning the closure of both 10400 South and 12600 South. Overlapping the two closures (12600 South is expected to open in August) saves at least a year from the schedule, along with millions of taxpayer dollars from the budget, versus building the interchanges one after the other. 

Three new freeway-style interchanges are currently under construction along Bangerter Highway at 6200 South, 10400 South, and 12600 South. These interchanges will eliminate stoplights for Bangerter Highway drivers and improve safety by removing cross traffic. This continues a multi-year program of upgrading Bangerter Highway by converting intersections to interchanges to accommodate current and future growth in this part of the state. Information on current and future plans for interchanges along Bangerter Highway is available at udot.utah.gov/bangerter.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. For the latest information on traffic patterns and restrictions during construction, visit the UDOT Traffic website or download the UDOT Traffic app for iPhone or Android.
