UDOT has developed ramp identification signs for some of the state's most complex interchanges to help drivers, dispatchers and emergency responders quickly pinpoint the exact location of an incident - improving mobility and reducing response time.
The signs will contain a three-letter code indicating the county, interchange and ramp the sign represents. These signs will be placed every tenth of a mile on freeway-to-freeway ramps for easy visibility to drivers in need of assistance. Exact sign locations will be imported into existing GPS-based dispatch systems.
The signs will be rolled out in two initial locations in the Salt Lake Valley before being installed statewide:
- Airport Interchanges (I-80/Bangerter and I-80/I-215)
- Spaghetti Bowl
- 500 South and 600 South ramps
