The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) announced its Top 10 Projects list for the 2017 construction season April 12. This year’s top project will build five freeway-like interchanges on Bangerter Highway in the southwest Salt Lake Valley over the next two years. The $249 million project will be completed in late 2018.
UDOT has 180 highway construction projects scheduled across the state this year, with a combined value of $1.3 billion. These projects are designed enhance safety for drivers and pedestrians, improve traffic flow, and maintain Utah’s roads and bridges in good condition.
This year’s Top 10 includes three projects in western Salt Lake County, a fast-growing area. In addition, four of the Top 10 projects are far from the Wasatch Front in southern and eastern Utah, where these projects will improve transportation links for local communities.
