Westbound I-80 ramp to SLC airport to close Friday night to Monday morning
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers planning travel to Salt Lake City International Airport this weekend that the ramp from westbound I-80 to the airport will be closed. The ramp is scheduled to close Friday, Oct. 1, at 8 p.m., and is expected to reopen by Monday, Oct. 4, at 4 a.m.
During the closure, airport travelers will need to use alternate routes to access the airport, including I-215 and Bangerter Highway. The airport access from the northbound I-215 ramp to westbound I-80 will remain open.
Crews will be replacing sections of concrete barrier along the ramp to enhance safety. The work is part of a project that’s upgrading those concrete barriers along several sections of I-80 in Salt Lake City.
Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. For the latest on Utah road and traffic conditions visit the UDOT Traffic website (udottraffic.utah.gov) or download the UDOT Traffic app. Drivers can also follow UDOT on social media including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
