Area 14 — 7800 South (Midvale) to Bangerter Highway (Draper/Bluffdale)



Construction Activity:

Progress continues in Area 14 behind Salt Lake Community College’s campus at 9800 South as crews construct a bridge that flies over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. This is the area where FrontRunner will move from the east side to the west side of the tracks. Crews will be installing rebar and pouring concrete for one of the piers this week.



Crews are also finishing construction on a bridge adjacent to the current Union Pacific Railroad bridge at 144th South. Crews will be repaving and restriping the road under the bridges this week.



Fiber optic work will take place throughout the area with crews installing micro-fiber and micro-duct.



Traffic Impacts:

A temporary traffic light has been placed at 144th South and the Union Pacific Bridge to help with traffic flow. If the signal light is flashing, construction crews have flaggers on the road to help speed up traffic although there may be some delays while crews are moving equipment. Crews anticipate removing the temporary traffic light this week and will be placing stop signs in their original locations at the bridge.



We thank motorists in this area for their patience and support during construction and ask that you continue to be cautious while driving on the one lane road under the bridges.
