Utah Department of Transportation—The I-15 Point Project

The I-15 Point is the only significant southern corridor into and out of the Salt Lake Valley and therefore one of the most crucial corridors in the state. With mountains on both sides, the $215 million I-15 Point project expanded a 7-mile stretch of I-15 to six lanes in each direction from Timpanogos Highway to 12300 South. Carrying 160,000 vehicles on this segment each day, UDOT aimed to reduce congestion and improve safety. Along with the additional lanes, UDOT replaced aged pavement with 40-year lifespan concrete pavement, upgraded an interchange, realigned a frontage road, installed a new signalized intersection, and other tasks that made for a smoother and safer ride along I-15. Overall, the project increased vehicle capacity by 35.7 percent and have significantly cut traffic delays.Utah DOT's I-15 Point Project
