Bangerter Highway Overpass at 7000 South

The Bangerter Interchanges Project includes converting four current at-grade intersections into grade-separated, freeway style interchanges. These interchanges are located at 5400 South, 7000 South, 9000 South, and 11400 South. The completed project will dramatically improve the traffic flow on Bangerter Highway through the Salt Lake Valley. The project team is a joint venture of R.L. Wadsworth Construction and W. W. Clyde & Co. Each interchange includes demolition of existing facilities and construction of drainage, utilities, MSE walls, piling, bridge, asphalt and concrete pavement, signals, lighting, and other appurtenances. The 7000 South interchange also includes removal and replacement of a pedestrian bridge over Bangerter Highway.

The significant challenge of this project is the highly accelerated construction schedule. This is particularly true of the 7000 South interchange, which begins in Spring 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by Thanksgiving 2017.Many aspects of the project are photo-worthy. One in particular will be the installation of the pedestrian bridge structure at 7000 South. The significant challenge of this project is the highly accelerated construction schedule. This is particularly true of the 7000 South interchange, which begins in Spring 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by November 2017.
