Improved mobility for Brigham City area and Cache Valley is primary project goal Ogden
A long awaited project to reconstruct a congested Interstate 15 interchange west of Brigham City will get underway on Monday, November 11. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will begin the reconstruction of the I-15 interchange at US-91 (1100 South) near in Brigham City/Perry next Monday. The long-awaited project will result in the realignment of the present interchange, from a single two-lane bridge crossing I-15, to a more efficient Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) featuring two bridges providing improved, more direct access to the interstate ramps, and to motorists seeking to go into Brigham City and Cache Valley beyond.
UDOT Project Manager Nathan Peterson says the $12 million project will lead to a significant improvement in traffic mobility at the congested interchange. He said vehicles going east-bound on 1100 South (US-91) from south-bound I-15 will see a marked improvement in their ability to access Brigham City and Cache Valley, without affecting traffic headed south on I-15 from those areas. Traffic headed to Brigham City and Cache Valley from Ogden and Salt Lake City via I-15 should be generally unaffected by any of the work taking place at the interchange.
A project information team has been retained by UDOT to ensure that stakeholders have access to information about this project when they need it. Peterson encourages commuters, truckers and others who frequently pass through this interchange to sign up for the regular email updates that will be issued as construction progresses.
Stakeholders may sign up by calling the project hotline at 877-222-3757, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A project website has also been established with additional information at www.udot.utah.gov/1100southddi. Commuters can also get the latest traffic information on their iPhones or Smartphones by downloading the free Utah Traffic App. For more information visit the iPhone Store or the Android Marketplace.
