SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Transportation is currently in the design phase for improvements at Bangerter Highway and Redwood Road, and the agency is seeking public input.

The project will include a grade-separated interchange similar to the interchange of 7800 South and Bangerter Highway.

As the community surrounding the interchange continues to grow, the improvements are part of a long-range plan that will accommodate immediate and long-term traffic demands and increase mobility.

The grade-separated interchange also will improve safety for those commuting through the area by reducing conflict points. Construction will begin in spring 2014, with details of the schedule yet to be determined.

Members of the project team are currently near Bangerter and Redwood Road evaluating current traffic, utility and drainage conditions.

UDOT invites the public to attend an informational open house on Wednesday, Nov. 20, from 5-7 p.m. at the Bluffdale City Council Chambers. UDOT will explain anticipated impacts and also give the public a platform to provide feedback. A brief formal presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m. and written and verbal comments can be made following the presentation and throughout the meeting.

UDOT welcomes comments until Nov. 30. Email bangerterredwood@utah.gov to fill out a formal comment, receive more information and plan ahead for the project.
