SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, April 16, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — The Utah Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan ahead for overnight closures of SR-201 in West Valley City starting Thursday evening.
Portions of SR-201 will close at 5600 West beginning as early as 8 p.m. each night, and 6 p.m. Sunday, while crews demolish the 5600 West bridge deck, said a news release from UDOT.
These closures are scheduled for the following times:
- Eastbound SR-201 closed from Thursday, April 16, at 8 p.m. to Friday, April 17, at 6 a.m.
- Westbound SR-201 closed from Friday, April 17, at 8 p.m. to Saturday, April 18, at 8 a.m.
- Both directions on SR-201 closed from Saturday, April 18, at 8 p.m. to Sunday, April 19, at 10 a.m.
- Both directions on SR-201 reduced to one lane from Sunday, April 19, at 6 p.m. to Monday, April 20, at 5 a.m.
All traffic will be detoured off of SR-201 at the 5600 West off-ramps. Vehicles will then be routed via new frontage road connections back onto SR-201. Drivers should be alert and follow detour signs.
“This bridge demolition is being done as part of the Mountain View Corridor extension from 4100 South to SR-201,” the news release said. “Many of the SR-201 freeway ramps at 5600 West are also being realigned to accommodate the new connection of Mountain View to SR-201. The project is scheduled for completion later next year.”
