Expect Traffic Delays On I-80 Near Park City

Road construction projects will cause traffic delays on I-80 at Parley's Summit during the next two weekends.

New bridges are being put in place at the summit, which is located near Park City, east of Salt Lake City. The bridges are built off-site and then moved over the freeway, in an innovative program that allows crews to complete major road construction projects with minimal impact on traffic.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about the project. Below are excerpts.

I-80 eastbound will be closed from Saturday at 10 p.m. to Sunday at noon.

Only local traffic will be allowed through using the on- and off-ramps. UDOT's Tania Washburn says drivers should expect up to one hour delays in the area.

The westbound bridge is scheduled to move Aug. 20 at 10 p.m. through Aug. 21 at noon. I-80 will be reduced to two lanes starting Aug. 20 at 10 a.m. and will be closed overnight as crews move the bridge into place overnight.

The work is part of the Renovate I-80 project from Salt Lake City to Wyoming. UDOT crews are replacing bridges, improving road surfaces, adding climbing lanes and installing safety barriers.
