The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will improve I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East and I-215 between 3300 South and 4500 South. The pavement will be removed and replaced with new concrete throughout, and a new lane will be added to eastbound I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East, within UDOT's existing operational right-of-way.
