Ongoing Work

I-15 NB CD Structure at 5600 South (SR-97)

Crews will continue wall construction work that includes backfilling, forming the approach slabs along with finishing completing pouring activities on the deck of the Collector Distributor (CD) Bridge.


Along 5600 South (SR-97)

Third-Party utility work is taking place along 5600 South (SR-97) on the north and south sides in park strips at intermittent locations. Some properties along the corridor may be in a Public Utility Easement (PUE). This easement ensures that vital services, such as power lines, water pipes, gas lines, and communication cables can be acessed and maintained efficiently.  Restoration work will be happening as utility work progresses through summer. Please contact the project team if you have any questions. 


Moving Utility Operations and Nightwork continues along 5600 South (SR-97)


In partnership with Roy City, crews are continuing installation of a new waterline along 5600 South. To minimize impacts to water service, work is taking place during nighttime hours, approximately (7 p.m. – 5 a.m.). This work will be a moving operation and take place in various locations throughout the corridor.


Crews will temporarily close intermittent locations throughout the corridor. Impacted neighborhood residents will be notified of culinary water shut-offs and road closures by a flyer left on their front door. Work is expected to continue through summer 2024.*


What to Expect:

  • Noise, dust, vibration, and nighttime lighting
  • Short-term culinary water shut-offs (approximately from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
  • Occasional cross street road closures
  • One-way traffic operations with flaggers
  • Construction vehicles and crew members in the area

Closure at DR&G Trail near 2700 W

Crews are continuing work at the DR&G trail from 5600 South to 5200 South to accommodate the building of the new pedestrian bridge structure that will go over 5600 South. Crews are using a Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) drilling technique, which provides exceptional speed and efficiency. Unlike traditional methods with multiple stages–drilling, casing installation and concrete placement, CFA combines all these steps into a single, process. Concrete is pumped through the auger simultaneously with the extraction of the auger from the ground.

The trail closure is in place through late fall 2024. Pedestrians are encouraged to detour via 2700 W. 



Utility and drainage work along the south side of 5600 South will continue intermittently throughout the corridor.


Along 5600 South, crews will continue setting retaining panels and other activities around the UPRR (Union Pacific Railroad) bridge and along the north side at 2300 W through the month of June. Drivers can expect lane shifts, one-way flagging operations, adjacent cross street closures, and short-term delays along the corridor.
