New traffic pattern in place next week on Salt Lake Interchange project

As early as Monday (August 24), traffic will shift on Interstate 84/86 at the Salt Lake Interchange project. Motorists traveling from Utah toward Burley on I-84 will now be routed underneath the newly built bridge structures.

“This is a different traffic pattern than what we have had in place for the duration of this project,” ITD Project Manager Travis Hitchcock said. “It is important that drivers traveling through the area pay close attention to signage and message boards that will be in place to safely direct them through the area.”

Traffic will remain reduced to a single lane in each direction, and the turn offs toward Salt Lake City from eastbound I-84 will remain the same.

This project is scheduled to finish by late 2020.

Drivers should still anticipate reduced speeds through the work zone and watch for crews and heavy equipment.

Wadsworth Brothers Construction, of Draper, Utah is the prime contractor on this project.
