Construction Update - March 27, 2020

The following construction activities and associated traffic, pedestrian and residential impacts are located along northbound I-15 in Midvale, Sandy and Draper cities. 
Note: Construction activities and schedule are subject to change.

Upcoming Activities 

Northbound I-15 (Bangerter Highway to 7200 South): 

Traffic on I-15 has recently decreased due to people telecommuting and staying at home during recent events. As a result, nighttime lane closures will begin earlier in the evening on mainline I-15 and the off-ramps and on-ramps. Our project team will regularly monitor traffic flow and adjust lane closure times as needed.

Utility Work throughout the Project Area:

Crews are installing utilities and drainage throughout the project area and will continue for the next several months. Lane shifts, lane closures and one-way flagging are being used to keep traffic moving while the work is conducted.

Center Street (7720 South) in Midvale:

Next week, crews will continue driving piles for the bridge foundations on the north side of Center Street. Nearby residents and businesses should expect increased noise and vibration from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. 

Minuteman Drive in Draper:

On Monday, March 30, crews will begin removing the concrete barrier along Minuteman Drive and will install new barrier beginning the following week. Lane shifts and one-way flagging may be used to facilitate this work.
