6200 S. Detour
6200 South between Bangerter Highway and Dixie Drive will close for one week
Reroute Oct. 16-23
The Utah Department of Transportation is closing 6200 South between Bangerter Highway and Dixie Drive for one week.
The road will be closed to drivers and pedestrians from Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 9 p.m. through Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 5 a.m.
See the detour map showing alternative routes for the week here:
This work will allow crews to relocate the Jordan Valley Aqueduct across 6200 South in preparation for the construction of a freeway-style interchange at Bangerter Highway and 6200 South.
- Eastbound drivers will detour either to 4000 West or Center Park Drive.
- Westbound drivers will detour onto Bangerter to 5400 South then to 4000 West.
- The pedestrian bridge will be closed, as well.
The work is scheduled during Granite School District's fall break in effort to minimize disruption. The school district is busing students who live west of Bangerter Highway to Westbrook Elementary and to Bennion Junior High during the construction.
Crews have been working on the new 78-inch pipe on the north and south sides of the project corridor. They have completed installation of the new turnout vault that will provide water to the existing pipe.
Construction has occurred primarily on the west side of Bangerter Highway and is expected to be complete this fall.
The aqueduct relocation will shave a year off the construction time of the interchange. The 6200 South Interchange is expected to be complete in 2020 while other interchanges along the highway will take two years to finish.
The interchange construction phase will begin in spring 2020.
