Utah I-80 projects to require major road closings

| 10/2/2009

The Utah Department of Transportation is issuing a warning to truckers and other motorists that two Interstate-80 bridge replacement projects in Salt Lake City will create traffic headaches.

Replacement of one of the bridges – at the Echo exit just east of the I-84 interchange – is expected to cause four-hour traffic delays Sunday, Oct. 4.

Replacement of the other bridge – at 2300 East – will create delays in mid-October.

UDOT advises truckers to plan alternate routes. For information on the bridge construction and road closures, visit www.itruck.utah.gov.
