LEHI, Utah (ABC4 News) – Drivers in a heavily-congested area of Lehi have a new option. The Utah Department of Transportation opened a new bridge over Interstate 15, but is it helping?
ABC4’s Rick Aaron test out the route live during the Thursday afternoon commute.
Results are in: the drive from Triumph Boulevard & Timpanogos Highway to the water tower at Thanksgiving Point took less than half the time using the new Triumph Boulevard Bridge over I-15. @UDOTTRAFFIC @abc4utah pic.twitter.com/B1RgDgnd4R— Rick Aaron (@ABC4RickAaron) November 1, 2018
The Triumph Boulevard bridge connects the two sides of Lehi and north and southbound frontage roads.
The Utah Department of Transportation started working on the bridge in May as part of the Tech Corridor Project which is scheduled to end in 2020.
