Utah I-80 Construction

With temperatures starting to rise, construction on Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) projects are starting to ramp up. UDOT will be working on 209 projects this year, with a value of $2.74 billion over the life of the projects.

Drivers are urged to plan ahead and stay informed, as these projects will require lane closures, detours, and new traffic patterns while under construction. Planned improvements range from repaving rural highways, to building freeway-style interchanges and widening, repaving, demolishing and building bridges. Projects also include several new trails and improved pedestrian access and safety improvements. The traffic delays from these projects range from overnight lane restrictions to full road closures with major detours.

“These projects are part of our commitment to helping people get where they want, in the way they want, safely and efficiently,” said Lisa Wilson, UDOT deputy director of engineering and operations. “This includes building new projects to help meet growth demands, maintaining our aging roads and bridges, and building out our transportation network to accommodate drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists.”

Utah is one of the fastest-growing states in the country, and UDOT is continually looking for ways to meet current and future transportation needs while maintaining the existing highway system in good condition.
