  1. I-15 Technology Corridor, $450 million: This $450 million project starts construction in the spring to widen I-15 to six lanes in both directions between S.R. 92 (Timpanogos Highway) and Main Street in Lehi. This is the last remaining section of I-15 between Salt Lake City and Spanish Fork where the freeway is still only four lanes wide. Other project improvements include a new overpass to extend Triumph Boulevard over I-15, and upgrades to the S.R. 92 and 2100 North interchanges. This project will finish in late 2020.
  2. I-15 Southbound – Salt Lake County, 2100 South to 12300 South, $180 million: Another major project will widen I-15 in Salt Lake County by adding a new southbound lane from 2100 South to 12300 South. This project will also redesign some of the southbound ramps at the I-15/I-215 south interchange to improve traffic flow, and will widen 7200 South to three lanes from I-15 to Bingham Junction Boulevard in Midvale. Work will begin this spring and is expected to be complete in late 2019.
  3. I-215/Redwood Road Diverging Diamond Interchange – North Salt Lake, $42 million: In Davis County, crews will reconstruct I-215 from the I-15 interchange in North Salt Lake to 2200 North. This project will also construct a new Diverging Diamond interchange at Redwood Road and I-215. Construction started in February, and continues through the end of the year.
