I’m not sure any of us are ready for construction on I15 again but like it or not it’s coming. It’s called the Point Project and its goal is to reduce congestion from Lehi to Draper (S.R. 92 to 123000). The name for the 252 million dollar project comes from its location at the Point of the Mountain.
The project is currently under design with construction expected to start next Spring.
Frequently Asked Questions
UDOT has $252 million allocated to this project and is focusing its efforts between Salt Lake and Utah Counties. Within that project area, the concrete pavement is nearly 50 years old and needs to be replaced. The interchange at S.R. 92 is also a primary entrance and exit point for the communities of north Lehi, Alpine, Highland and Cedar Hills. As funds become available, UDOT plans to build additional improvements in the area to further enhance traffic flow.
With very limited alternative routes available, UDOT’s goal is to keep at least four lanes open to traffic during the day as much as possible.
UDOT encourages drivers to TravelWise and reduce delays during The Point project by doing the following:
- Riding mass transit (FrontRunner, Buses)
- Carpooling and vanpooling
- Adjusting work schedules to avoid heavy travel times
- Trip chaining
By incorporating TravelWise strategies as part of your everyday travel, visiting The Point website, subscribing to weekly email updates, downloading the UDOT Traffic app, and following the project on Facebook or Twitter.
UDOT will establish a comprehensive public information program to provide motorists with up-to-date information during construction, including website updates, hotline, regular email updates, mass communications and social media efforts.0
