Amanda Butterfield ReportingThere are nearly 200 construction projects that UDOT is working on this summer, totaling $1.4 billion.
UDOT is kicking off a new campaign to help drivers get around and avoid the construction areas. As part of its new campaign, "Know Where, Know Why," UDOT has located the 20 most significant road projects in the state.
UDOT has printed brochures and will be running ads on the radio to update drivers on those projects. Its Web site also has an interactive map on it. It will show drivers road closures and completion dates.
The 3500 South and Bangerter intersection is one of the bigger projects UDOT is working on. It's called the continuous flow intersection. It's a first-of-its-kind intersection in Utah that is designed to relieve traffic. It should be finished this fall.
You can pick up the brochures at Subways. You can also try out the interactive map by clicking on the link to the right of your screen.
Besides those 194 U-DOT construction projects going on this summer, there will be TRAX, city and county projects.
