The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is improving the eastbound and westbound I-80 bridges at Echo (milepost 168) and Wanship (milepost 155) in Summit County. This work will include installing new barriers or guardrails at some locations and replacing the bridge approach slabs – the part of the structure that carries traffic between the road and the top of the bridge.
Work began on westbound I-80 at the Echo bridge in October 2022, suspended in November for the winter, and will resume in spring 2023. Spring work will last for approximately two months and include the eastbound I-80 bridge at Echo and the I-80 bridges at Wanship.
To accommodate this work, the I-80 bridge under construction will be reduced to one lane. The inside lane will remain open while crews complete work on the outside lane. Once finished, the outside lane will remain open while crews complete work on the inside lane.
