Crews work to move aqueduct at 6200 South
Utah Department of Transportation crews spent the fall working to move an aqueduct near 6200 South and Bangerter Highway in advance of the construction of a freeway-style interchange there.
The aqueduct work resulted in the one-week closure of road near the intersection in October and some lane closures in November. The segment of the Jordan Aqueduct is being relocated in preparation of the new interchange at 6200 South and Bangerter Highway. Construction has occurred primarily on the west side of Bangerter Highway and is nearing completion.
The interchange construction phase will begin in spring 2020.
Over the past few months, crews worked to place a 78-inch pipe on the north and south sides of the project corridor and a 36-inch water line under Bangerter Highway. Work also included the installation of a new turnout vault to provide water to the existing pipe.
UDOT is currently reaching out to property owners to conduct right-of-way negotiations on property acquisitions ahead of the planned construction schedule of the interchange. Property owners can expect to be contacted by UDOT representatives within the next few months.
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.
