Major Road Construction Projects
Detour Map of summer road construction projects
Work is underway to reconstruct 3.2 miles of Suncrest Drive from Traverse Ridge Rd. to the Draper City limits. This project has an anticipated completion date of November 1. Two lanes of traffic will be open throughout the duration of the project. Traffic delays should be minimal. The speed limit has been reduced to 30 mph through the construction area and biking is prohibited through the construction zone.
Paving on the west side of the road will be completed by Monday August 7th. Traffic will then be shifted to the west side of the road and crews will begin construction on the east side.
Bangerter Parkway and 13800 South Intersection
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is working in conjunction with Draper City to improve the intersection at 13800 South and Bangerter Highway. This project will provide an additional through lane for the north, west, and south legs of the intersection, as well as an additional left-turn lane on each of the north and west legs to improve mobility and travel times. Each leg will maintain one right-turn lane, and a raised median will be installed in the west leg to improve safety. This project is under construction and is scheduled to be complete by the middle of October.
Construction barrels will be in place on all four legs of the intersection throughout the project to help guide traffic through the work zone. Drivers should exercise caution as right turn pockets may be closed an lanes will be shifted and narrowed. Please be aware of changing pedestrian conditions throughout construction - adhere to sidewalk closures and use designated alternate routes.
Crews will pour curb and gutter on the northeast quadrant of the intersection and will begin preparing the roadway for asphalt paving. They will move west to begin roadway excavation on the northwest quadrant, adjacent to Harmons, as early as this week. At that time, westbound 13800 South will have one through-lane open to traffic for up to one month as widening is completed on the west side.
Significant traffic delays may be experienced in this area during construction. To avoid delays, motorists are encouraged to plan extra time to travel through the intersection or avoid this area by using alternate routes when possible. Visit udottraffic.utah.gov for real-time traffic information or check the UDOT Traffic app before traveling through the area.
This project will widen the intersection adding additional turning lanes and thru lanes to improve traffic movement. It will include curb and sidewalk on 13800 South as well as reconstructing the pavement. This project should be completed by the end of October.
Willow Springs Lane
Construction crews have begun to remove and replace the failing asphalt pavement on Willow Springs. The asphalt has deteriorated and has many potholes developing. Replacing the asphalt will create a smooth, safe roadway. Final paving of the roadway will be completed by August 5th.
13200 South - Boulter to Highland
Construction is underway to widen and extend 13200 South from the Draper Park Middle School to Highland Drive 13200 South is underway and should be completed by the end of September. The road will be closed to through traffic during construction and motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes to avoid this area when possible.
This project will connect the road from where it currently terminates on the west side of the UTA tracks to Highland Drive. The existing road will be widened from Boulter Street to Highland Drive, and curb, gutter, sidewalk and a complete new roadway will be constructed.
Connecting this road will add an additional east-west connection to the east side of the City. This will reduce the congestion currently being experienced at the 1300 East and Pioneer Road round-a-bout and the 1300 East and Highland Drive intersection. It will provide a more direct route for east side residents to the two schools located on 1300 East and 13200 South. The addition of sidewalks will also make pedestrian access much safer.
Crews are scheduled to pave 13200 South from Boulter Street to the Draper Park Middle School on August 18th. Highland Drive will also be paved the same day. Boulter Street and 13200 South (west of Boulter Street) will be opened before school starts on August 22nd. The remaining portion of 13200 South will remain closed to through traffic until the project is completed. The project is on schedule to be completed by the end of September.
Pioneer Road from 600 East to 700 East and portions of 700 East (north and south of Pioneer Road) will be widened and curb, gutter and sidewalk will be added through these areas. The asphalt pavement has deteriorated and needs to be replaced. The addition of curb, gutter and sidewalk will improve storm water collection and provide for safer pedestrian movement.
Crews are scheduled to pave 700 East (south of Pioneer Road) on Monday, August 7th. The entire intersection will be closed in all directions to allow crews to reconstruct the intersection starting at noon on August 11th until noon on August 14th. After the intersection is paved, 700 East will be opened and Pioneer Road from 600 East to 700 East will be closed to through traffic. Notices of the closures and traffic detours will be provided prior to the closures. The pavement on Pioneer Road is scheduled to be completed and the road re-opened by September 9th. Landscaping and other finish items on this project will be completed by October 8th.
Bangerter Highway & 13800 South
Construction Update - July 28, 2017
Crews will continue to work on the northwest quadrant of the intersection, adjacent to Harmons. This work will cause temporary impacts to the Harmons accesses but one of the two accesses will remain open at all times. Curb and gutter removal in the southwest quadrant is scheduled to begin next week. Westbound 13800 South will be reduced to one through-lane to traffic for up to one month as the widening in this area is completed.
Please be aware of changing pedestrian conditions throughout construction and adhere to sidewalk closures. Please use designated alternate routes as indicated.
Construction barrels will be in place on all four legs of the intersection throughout the project to help guide traffic through the work zone. Drivers should exercise caution as right turn pockets may be closed and lanes will be shifted and narrow.
