(KSL News) -- UDOT has adjusted its new ramp meters to help alleviate traffic congestion near 90th South onramp.
On Wednesday, we told you about many commuters near Sandy who say their commute time increase dramatically after UDOT installed the meters.
Once the meters turn on, cars trying to enter northbound I-15 at 90th South are backed up for blocks.
UDOT sent engineers to evaluate the scene yesterday, and says road construction on 7800 South could be contributing to the problem.
Brent Wilhite, UDOT: "So, to accommodate for that, we're actually going to turn off our signals at the ramp metering at 7:15. We think that that's going to alleviate some of the back up on this interchange, and hopefully things will be better in the future."
This morning, UDOT turned off the meters around 7:15, and the congestion seemed to lighten up.
