SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Earlier this week, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advised Salt Lake residents that both lanes headed in both directions on I-80 between 700 E and Foothill Dr. would be closed this weekend from Friday April 8 to Sunday April 10 at 1:00 p.m.
The closure was a result of a reconstruction project of the bridge located at 1700 E.
As of today, April 9 at around 5:00 p.m. the UDOT announced that all lanes in question have been reopened early.
The organization notes that the I-80 Renewed project team was able to demolish the existing 1700 E bridge and successfully slid the new bridge into place.
