TAYLORSVILLE, Utah, Nov. 14, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Drivers are being reminded of lane closures on Bangerter Highway at 6200 South in Taylorsville starting Friday.
The work will allow crews to install a 36-inch water line across Bangerter, said a news release from the Utah Department of Transportation. UDOT will be implementing lane closures over two weekends, Nov. 15-18 and Nov. 22-25, for the 6200 South Aqueduct project.
Weekend lane closures will be in effect at Bangerter and 6200 South starting Friday, Nov. 15 at 9 p.m. through Monday Nov. 18 at 5 a.m., the news release said.
Lane closures will be in effect again in the same area starting Friday, Nov. 22 at 9 p.m. through Monday, Nov. 25 at 5 a.m. Drivers should expect travel delays, the news release said.
“Crews have been working on the new 78-inch pipe on the north and south sides of the project corridor, including the installation of a new turnout vault to provide water to the existing pipe,” the news release said. “Construction on the pipe has occurred primarily on the west side of Bangerter Highway, and is expected to be complete at the end of the year.”
The aqueduct relocation will shave a year off the construction time of the interchange, officials said. The 6200 South Interchange is expected to be complete in 2020 while other interchanges along the highway will take two years to finish.
The interchange construction phase will begin in spring 2020.
