UDOT to close 4700 South at Bangerter Highway as interchange construction begins

Expect delays, as east-west travel at the intersection is restricted the last weekend of February 

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers in Taylorsville to plan ahead for weekend lane closures of 4700 South at Bangerter Highway in February.  

February 23-26 closure

4700 South will close starting Friday, Feb. 23 at 10 p.m., and open in time for the morning commute on Monday, Feb. 26. 

Drivers should expect delays in the area during this work and can use either 4100 South or 5400 South as alternate routes. 

UDOT is building a new interchange at 4700 South, a key part of UDOT’s efforts to eliminate stoplights on Bangerter Highway with freeway-style interchanges with on- and off-ramps. Construction of this interchange is scheduled for completion in late 2025.  

A full 12-month east-west closure at 4700 South and Bangerter Highway is scheduled to begin in June 2024 to allow crews to build the new interchange safely and efficiently.
