FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When will construction for the new interchange begin?

A: Construction is starting in July 2023. Phase 1 will relocate the existing Jordan Valley Aqueduct (July 2023 – Spring 2024). Phase 2 will convert the intersection to an interchange (Spring 2024 – Fall 2025). Visit the “Schedule” tab for more details.

Q: What is the purpose of upgrading this intersection to an interchange?

A: Over the last 10 years, UDOT has been progressively upgrading the various intersections of Bangerter Highway to freeway-style interchanges.  Upgrading the intersection of 4700 South and Bangerter Highway is the next steps in UDOT’s efforts to reduce congestion and improve quality of life on the west side of the valley. Once all intersections of Bangerter Highway have been upgraded, this facility will reduce travel times for drivers, providing an alternative to I-15.

Q: What is the Jordan Valley Aqueduct (JVA)?

A: The Jordan Valley Aqueduct is a key piece of water infrastructure, originally constructed in the early 1970s, that supplies drinking water to most areas within the Salt Lake Valley. This 6-ft wide underground pressurized pipeline extends nearly 40 miles from the mouth of Provo Canyon to 2100 South in Salt Lake City. While owned by the United State Bureau of Reclamation (USBR), the JVA is operated and maintained by the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District.
