Interstate 80, from I-15 to Redwood Road
Closed beginning October 1, 1989, to September 30, 1990, for total reconstruction. Nine bridges will be dismantled and reconstructed and new concrete pavement will be layed. Traffic will be detoured mainly to North Temple, I-215 and 2100 South.
In conjunction with the closure of I-80, other on/off ramps had to be closed because of the increased traffic on detour routes:
Westbound 2100 South on ramp from Redwood Road:
Closed for duration of I-80 reconstruction. To eliminate conflict with the increased traffic at the 2100 South/I-215 interchange.
Southbound I-15 Collector Route:
Closed south of 2100 South for duration of I-80 reconstruction. All southbond I-15 Collector Route traffic must exit eastbound or westbound on 2100 South. There is no access to I-15 or I-80 from the Collector Route. To accommodate the additional traffic coming from I-80 through the interchange via 2100 South.
