Check out the complete anticipated construction schedule for the 91 project here.
Construction crews are gearing up for work on 12 bridges and nine walls during the remainder of 2014. A major area of focus is the 15/91 Interchange. Crews are building temporary connectors from northbound and southbound I-15 to westbound 91. Motorists will be shifted to the temporary connectors to allow crews to work on the new, permanent connectors between these roadways. As part of this work, the northbound 15 to westbound 91 connector will be restriped to add another lane through Main Street.
On the west end of the project, crews are rebuilding the westbound Green River Road off-ramp. The new off-ramp will extend over Prado Road and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway tracks. Once completed, the new ramp will improve travel through this busy intersection.
Construction crews will continue to place K-rail and restripe roadway lanes, on-ramps and off-ramps during the coming week. This work will require various lane closures at night throughout the week. Drivers are reminded to watch for these closures, as well as narrower lane widths and shifts in lane configurations along the 91 and Interstate 15.
Drivers also should note the newly restriped connector from the northbound 15 to westbound 91, which is adding a second lane on the connector through the Main Street Interchange.
