Major I-15 construction for The Point project will begin March 1, 2015. Preliminary work outside of I-15 mainline is ongoing at the 14600 South interchange and along the Frontage Roads to I-15.
- Beginning during overnight hours on
Crews will begin work on the East Jordan Canal, which crosses under I-15 between Bangerter Highway and the 14600 South interchange.
During these operations, work hours will be from
- During daytime hours, four travel lanes will be maintained in each direction, but climbing lanes and designated exit lanes will be closed during construction.
- The Express Lanes will also be open to all motorists until freeway construction is complete (details below).
14600 SOUTH INTERCHANGE
- Work continues at the 14600 South interchange to relocate utilities and construct a temporary, widened bridge to accommodate freeway widening work.
- Motorists can expect intermittent flagging operations and reduced lane widths in this area during the day and lane closures at night.
PONY EXPRESS ROAD & MINUTEMAN DRIVE FROM BANGERTER HIGHWAY TO S.R. 92
- Nightly single lane closures with one-way flagging operations are ongoing on both the east and west Frontage Roads while crews build retaining walls and relocate utilities in preparation for I-15 expansion.
- Expect short-term delays and an increase in nighttime noise and construction activity through spring 2015.
To better accommodate traffic in the construction zone, the Express Lanes from S.R. 92 to 12300 South will become general purpose lanes for the duration of the project. Outside of the project limits, Express Lanes will function as normal.
Work activities and schedules are subject to change.

The Point project will improve mobility and reduce congestion along I-15 between northern Utah County and Draper, specifically from S.R. 92 to 12300 South. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) plans to widen and place new pavement along this seven-mile stretch of freeway. Named for its location around the point of the mountain, The Point will use state funds to build the following improvements:
- Expand I-15 to six lanes in each direction from S.R. 92 to 12300 South.
- Replace the aged concrete pavement with new, durable pavement.
- Reconstruct the 14600 South interchange to be a Single-Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) in Bluffdale to improve safety and traffic flow.
- Enhance the existing traffic management system by installing additional ramp meters, fiber optics and other infrastructure to improve mobility.
