Upgrading along 5400 South will finish this month while work continues at 6200 South interchange
Road Improvements Made at Two Sites
Road construction is wrapping up along 5400 South between 1500 West and Bangerter Highway. The project, which started on May 6, has involved removing and replacing the asphalt pavement and upgrading curb, gutter and pedestrian ramps.
Work along 5400 South is expected to finish July 19.
Curb and gutter work and pedestrian paving will take place during the day, while the actual roadwork, including milling and paving, as well as utility work will occur at night to accommodate traffic. Outside Flex lanes will shift one lane inward but otherwise Flex lanes will remain operational. For additional information, please see the notice from the Utah Department of Transportation.
Construction work also is taking place at 6200 South and Bangerter to relocate an aqueduct in preparation of the new interchange next year.
UDOT will relocate a segment of the Jordan Aqueduct that extends north and south. Work on the aqueduct relocation started in May and will be completed in December. The actual pipe will be coming in about 12 weeks.
Construction will occur primarily on the west side of Bangerter Highway. The prep work needed for 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. Noise walls will stay up during the new pipe installation.
