SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Starting July 5, the Utah Department of Transportation will begin construction to maintain the bridges over I-80 at Silver Creek Junction (US-40/Silver Creek Road) in Summit County. Drivers can expect nightly ramp closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. This work and the associated ramp closures will extend through the end of July.
Drivers should plan ahead and follow the signed detour routes. Those traveling on westbound I-80 to southbound US-40, toward Heber, will exit I-80 at Kimball Junction and route back to US-40. Conversely, those traveling on eastbound I-80 to northbound US-40 will exit onto southbound US-40 and use Silver Summit to route north on US-40. This work will prolong the life of the bridges, enhance safety and provide a smoother ride for drivers.
WHAT TO EXPECT
- Night work, Monday – Friday from 8 p.m. – 6 a.m. (weekend work as needed)
- Increased noise, vibration, dust, and lighting
