PROJECT UPDATES

 

Construction Activities February 23 - March 1

Upcoming Activities

Activity within the roadway may cause extended travel time through the corridor. Motorists should reduce their speed and be prepared for sudden stopping traffic and/or shifting travel lanes.

Lane Closures

  • As early as Monday, February 26 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
  • Westbound 9000 South near Galilee Way (1210 West).
  • This lane closure is needed to enable crews to backfill around the new concrete wall as large equipment cannot fit on the sidewalk.


Night Work

  • As early as Sunday, March 3 nightly between 8:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. for two weeks.
  • Intersection of 1300 West and 9000 South.
  • This work will consist of installation of a new canal irrigation line crossing the south side 1300 West and the east side of 9000 South.

Area residents can expect an increase in overnight construction noise and related activities.

 

Bridge Work

  • As early as Tuesday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 12 between 4:00 a.m. and noon.
  • Bridge over the Jordan River
  • Crews will begin pouring the deck for the outside lanes over the Jordan River.

This work will have an early morning start and will last through early afternoon and not have any traffic impacts.

 

Ongoing Activities

  • Crews will have periodic and shifting lane closures at all hours throughout construction for maintenance along 9000 South. This work is required to patch potholes, restripe the roadway, clear the roadway and gutters of debris, and other maintenance needed along the corridor. Please reduce your speed and be aware of changing traffic patterns and sudden stopping/slowing of traffic.
     
  • Crews continue to work on a new concrete wall near Galilee Way on the north side of 9000 South. Please take extra caution in this area as the work is immediately adjacent to the roadway.
     
  • Crews continue work on new storm drain lines on the south side of 9000 South near 900 West along with new canal irrigation lines between 1300 West and Redwood Road. As this work continues, businesses may have short-term access interruptions.
     
  • Additional work continues near the Jordan River where crews are forming and placing rebar for the new bridge decks for the outside travel lanes.
     
  • Additional utility relocation work continues between the Jordan River and Redwood Road.

*Schedule is subject to change due to weather, equipment, or material delays.

1510 West Closed at 9000 South

Crews have closed 1510 West on the south side of 9000 South to install a new canal irrigation line across 1510 West. This closure will last for approximately two weeks. Business access will remain open.

The detour route will be using 9200 South from Redwood Road. See detour map for additional information.

Galilee Way Closure

Galilee Way has been closed at 9000 South through March. This closure is necessary to complete construction activities on the north side of 9000 South without impacting traffic on 9000 South.

To access Galilee Way, please follow the detour shown below.

Detour map for Galilee Way closure at 9000 South

Eastbound 9000 South left turn closed at 700 West

The left turning lane to 700 West from eastbound 9000 South will be closed. This closure is expected to last through Summer 2024. Traffic should use Sandy Parkway (450 West) as the detour route. Click here to see the recommended detour map.

This closure is necessary to ensure safety as there is insufficient room to install a left-turning lane.


Construction Activities 700 West to State Street

Once overnight temperatures are consistently over 50 degrees, crews will begin the asphalt repairs on 9000 South between 700 West and State Street. Once the minimum temperature has been reached and paving activities scheduled, that information will be shared on the weekly update email.

FYI - Daytime paving activities on 9000 South are not encouraged/permitted due to the significant disruption to traffic along this busy corridor thus requiring paving activities to be conducted overnight.

OVERVIEW

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will widen 9000 South between Redwood Road and 700 West, in West Jordan and Sandy, by adding a new eastbound and westbound lane, a buffered bicycle lane, and continuous sidewalks throughout the corridor. Additionally, 9000 South will be repaved between 700 West and State Street. The project began July 5, 2023.

 

9000 South is a major east-west road that connects the growing communities in western Salt Lake Valley with I-15 and the eastern parts of the valley. This connection is leading to heavy congestion on 9000 South, and this congestion will continue to worsen. In addition, the exiting 9000 South roadway has insufficient shoulders and sidewalks and lacks bicycle facilities. 

 

The project is intended to improve local east-west traffic performance by reducing intersection congestion and average vehicle delay while improving travel mode choices and safety on 9000 South. These improvements seek to decrease the crash rates along the corridor and improve travel mode choices and enhance safety for active transportation users – including adding buffered bicycle lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the roadway.

 

During the project, crews will strive to minimize the impacts to utility services and impacts to existing homes and businesses. Our Public Involvement team is actively communicating with area businesses and residents on construction schedules, potential impacts, and other inquiries. 

 

ANTICIPATED IMPACTS

The contractor will utilize efforts to minimize impacts to neighboring residences, business, and the motoring public; however, it is likely the following impacts can be expected near/in the work zone:

  • Noise from construction activities, to include some overnight activity
  • Increase in vibration
  • Increase in dust - dust mitigation efforts will be utilized
  • Traffic delays due to lane restrictions and signal work

 

Work zones can be unpredictable. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speed and watch for changing traffic patterns, lane restrictions, and workers in the roadway.
