Eagle Mountain, Utah — Update on Construction
NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN AUGUST 2014
As early as Wednesday, August 13, crews will close some turning lanes at the Bangerter Highway and Redwood Road intersection and shift some turn movements to a new temporary road. This temporary traffic switch will keep cars moving with fewer delays until project completion in spring 2015.
Here’s what drivers need to know to adjust their travel routes:
- Most turn movements will be relocated between Redwood Road and east Bangerter Highway, including:
- The left-hand turn from westbound Bangerter to southbound Redwood Road
- The right-hand turn from northbound Redwood Road to eastbound Bangerter
- The left-hand turn from southbound Redwood Road to eastbound Bangerter
- New temporary road opened at the southeast quadrant near 13920 South; temporary traffic signals will be installed and provide an east-west connection for drivers between Redwood Road and Bangerter Highway. All turn movements described above will utilize the new temporary road.
- Through traffic on Bangerter & Redwood Road and the turn movement for northbound Redwood Road to westbound Bangerter Highway will remain open.
- Turn movements closed from eastbound Bangerter Highway to northbound Redwood Road.
- Drivers will be required to access the new temporary road in the southeast quadrant to travel to and from north Redwood Road
- Turn movement for westbound Bangerter Highway to northbound Redwood Road will remain open
UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
Redwood Road Crews are performing utility relocations on Redwood Road and Christan Way between Bangerter Highway and 13630 South. There will be one-way flagging and short-term delays on Redwood Road, Christan Way and into the adjacent businesses. This work will be complete in mid-August.
Sidewalk, curb and gutter removal on Redwood Road between Bangerter Highway and 13970 South will continue through early August to allow room for irrigation relocation, road widening and ramp construction. Driveway approaches will be maintained, but short-term interruptions may occur.
As early as the weekend of August 8, crews will perform sewer line relocation, irrigation and storm drain reconstruction and paving activities on Redwood Road south of Bangerter Highway. There will be traffic shifts and lane restrictions in both daytime and nighttime hours. Expect increased noise, light and construction activities at night.
As early as Wednesday, August 13, crews will restripe and shift traffic to the east side of Redwood Road on the north side of Bangerter Highway while crews reconstruct the west side of Redwood Road which will result in a new traffic configuration.
Northeast Quadrant Retaining wall construction, sound wall reinstallation and ramp construction activities are in progress. Crews are performing grading activities and installing sound wall panels. Ramp paving is expected in mid-August and sound walls are expected to be complete in late August. Expect nighttime work and increased dust, noise and vibration while these activities are underway.
Northwest Quadrant Crews are performing grading activities and irrigation relocation in preparation for ramp construction and sound wall reinstallation.
Southeast Quadrant Crews are currently performing paving activities for ramp construction and are expected to be complete by mid-August. Eastbound Bangerter Highway will be reduced to one lane during nighttime hours.
The concrete batch plant will begin production in early August. Expect increased hauling and noise associated with production and paving.
Southwest Quadrant (13800 South) Crews have installed a diesel pump for irrigation relocation activities. This pump will be in place approximately through the end of August and will be located at the intersection of 1950 West and 13800 South. Expect increased noise from the pump.
Night work activities continue for hauling, utility and irrigation relocations and other construction tasks. Travelers can expect lane(s) reductions on Bangerter Highway and Redwood Road.
Daytime activities include intermittent, single-lane closures during off-peak hours for demolition, utility work and clearing and grading activities.
During construction, residents can expect night work, lane reductions and increased equipment, hauling, lights, noise, dust and vibration.
