JORDAN VALLEY AQUEDUCT (JVA) RELOCATION NOW UNDERWAY THROUGH SPRING 2024
Crews have begun relocating the Jordan Valley Aqueduct (JVA) as part of the first phase of construction to convert Bangerter Highway at 4700 South to a freeway-style interchange.
Construction activities for the JVA relocation are anticipated to last through spring 2024. Construction of the interchange will begin spring 2024 and last through fall 2025.
During this work, those in the area can expect:
Increased noise, dust, and vibrations during daytime hours
Vehicles traveling through neighborhood streets to enter the work zone
Cleared vegetation in the work zone
Material stockpiles on site
For your safety and the safety of our crews, please stay behind the construction fencing and out of the work zone. Sign up for updates to receive the latest information as work progresses.
SCHEDULE & PHASING
PHASE 1: JORDAN VALLEY AQUEDUCT RELOCATION
(July 2023 – Spring 2024)
The first phase of this work will focus on relocating the existing Jordan Valley Aqueduct (JVA), which currently runs north to south, just to the east of Bangerter Highway. The JVA is part of key water infrastructure in the area that helps Jordan Valley Water provide clean drinking water to more than 500,000 people in Utah. The JVA will be shifted further east to accommodate construction of the new interchange. Traffic impacts to 4700 South should be minimal during this work.
PHASE 2: INTERCHANGE CONSTRUCTION
(Spring 2024 – Fall 2025)
Once the JVA has been relocated, the second phase of this work will focus on the conversion of the existing Bangerter Highway and 4700 South intersection from a Continuous Flow Intersection (CFI) to a Single-Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) with Bangerter Highway going under 4700 South.
