I-80 Surplus Canal Bridge Repair
Last updated Aug. 22, 2019
Crews are working to complete the I-80 Surplus Canal bridge reconstruction east of Salt Lake International Airport as early as Sunday evening, Aug. 25, after which all eastbound and westbound lanes will be in their normal configurations with permanent striping.
Prior to opening, crews will finish applying a protective sealant to the concrete starting. Drivers should expect daytime lane closures Sunday to accommodate this work and may experience minor delays traveling through the work zone.
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) replaced the surface of the I-80 Surplus Canal bridge (mile post 117 in Salt Lake County) and improved the bridge’s concrete barriers. The project will reduce frequent pavement maintenance, prolong the life of the bridge and make it compatible with future interstate barrier projects. Construction began in February, 2019, and was completed in late August.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Daytime work, Monday through Friday
24/7 lane shifts and lane closures
Extra travel time through the work zone
While access to the Salt Lake International Airport will remain available at all times, drivers should plan ahead for minor delays or use an alternate route to avoid construction.
Construction schedule is subject to change
