LAYTON — The Utah Department of Transportation and Layton city are conducting an environmental study and design for a new east-west connection across I-15 between state Route 126 (Main Street) and Hill Field Road.
The project will connect 1425 North on the east with a bridge across I-15 to the existing roadway between Kohl's and the Cutrubus Motors body shop.
The alignment will also include a new intersection at Main Street and realignment of Angel Street.
Transportation officials say the project will improve east-west mobility in Layton, relieve traffic congestion at the Antelope Drive and Hill Field Road interchanges, and promote economic development in Layton’s commercial area.
If all goes as planned, construction will begin in 2017.
