Greetings from the Bangerter project! As spring is just around the corner, construction on 9800 South, 13400 South and 2700 West will become more noticeable.
Continue to check the website, sign up for test updates and reach out to the project team for more ways to stay up to date on construction impacts!
Here's a timelapse video of the pedestrian bridge removals at 13400 South and 2700 West.

BANGERTER IN THE NEWS
UDOT is currently conducting seven State Environmental Studies (SES) that will evaluate potential improvements to Bangerter Highway at the remaining at-grade intersections. These environmental studies are the next step in UDOT's efforts to convert Bangerter Highway into a freeway to reduce congestion and minimize travel time for drivers.

AN OVERVIEW OF BANGERTER HIGHWAY
As one of our valley’s largest north-south corridors, Bangerter Highway moves an average of 60,000 vehicles per day. With continued growth on the west side of the Salt Lake Valley, that number is expected to double by 2040 and without major improvements, delays will increase by four times over the next twenty-five years.
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is making major improvements at various intersections along Bangerter Highway to reduce travel times and congestion, connect communities, and improve overall safety along the corridor. Bangerter operated using a series of traffic signals at a majority of its intersections, causing significant congestion in recent years. This congestion also exists for cross traffic moving east-west. To meet the current and future needs of drivers and the nearby communities, UDOT is replacing traditional intersections with grade-separated interchanges. Grade-separated interchanges allow one street to pass over the other. This separation allows Bangerter to free flow and the cross street to flow more efficiently. By removing traffic signals and creating fewer interruptions, traffic will move more freely and at speeds that are more consistent in all directions.
