SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Transportation announced Tuesday the completion of the Bangerter Highway design-build project.
The project converted the intersections of 6200 South and 7000 South to continuous-flow intersections and built a grade-separated interchange at 7800 South.
“These improvements on Bangerter Highway are vital to improving east-west traffic flow on the rapidly growing western side of the Salt Lake Valley,” said Marwan Farah, a UDOT engineer.
The road was constructed using a design-build process, which allows the project's design engineers and contractor to expedite construction. The stretch of Bangerter Highway between 6200 South and 7800 South was constructed in 15 months and was funded by state and federal money.
In coordination with the project, UDOT is installing a pedestrian bridge at 8200 South and state Route 111. UDOT has repurposed the former 7800 South pedestrian bridge span for the project.
Crews are constructing the new pedestrian bridge ramps. The bridge is expected to be open to foot traffic in mid-September.
