The project will build an extra eastbound and westbound travel lane on 9000 South, replace the bridge over the Jordan River, create buffered bicycle lanes (separated from traffic by a 3-foot painted area) and continuous sidewalks, along with improving left turns from southbound 700 West to eastbound 9000 South. Additionally, the project will repave 9000 South from 700 West to State Street to extend the life of the road and improve the driving surface.
According to UDOT traffic engineers, nearly 50,000 cars, as well as numerous pedestrians and bicyclists use 9000 South every day.
“9000 South is an essential east-west route that drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists rely on,” said Rebecka Stromness, UDOT Project Manager. “We’re working to help traffic flow more smoothly, reduce delays, and improve safety for everyone who uses this road.”
Construction is scheduled for completion in May 2025. Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change.
