I-215 Improvement Update

I-215 Improvement Update

UDOT plans to perform maintenance on six bridges on I-215 near Knudsen Corner in Cottonwood Heights/Holladay area as well as the 700 East bridge over I-215 in Midvale.

Construction began in early August, and will continue through January 2017.

This project will preserve Utah's bridge infrastructure by applying cost effective treatments before major rehabilitation is required.

Surrounding residents and businesses can expect traffic restrictions, construction equipment and vehicles in the area, and an increase in noise, dust and vibration.
