The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is conducting a safety improvement project westbound (WB) I-80 from milepost (MP) 99-106. Safety Improvements include a new WB auxiliary lane.
What to Expect:
In order to make way for the new auxiliary lane connecting the off-ramp at SR-201 and the on-ramp at SR-36, the westbound view area at MP 100.7 is closed permanently.
*Construction schedules are weather dependent and subject to change
Work activities to remove the old roadway and prepare the area for the new auxiliary lane continues. Crews are demolishing and crushing the existing concrete and will later repurpose the concrete material for use on other areas of the project.
Drivers can expect lane shifts with temporary striping, dust, noise, and vibration. The speed limit is reduced to 65 MPH, however both lanes are open for WB traffic. A protective concrete barrier has been placed between the driving lanes and the work zone. Drivers use caution and do not follow equipment into the work zone.
