SALT LAKE CITY — Commuters using the 201 Freeway near 3200 West this weekend may see some delays as crews work to repair potholes on the roadway.
Utah Department of Transportation Spokesperson John Gleason said the work is only a temporary fix.
“The work that’s happening this weekend on the 3200 West bridge at 201, that’s really to, kind of, get us through to the big project that is going to completely replace the bridge deck out there,” he said.
Gleason said UDOT is working to repair as many pothole-ridden freeways as possible so drivers can have a smoother ride. In fact, some drivers may have noticed that potholes are worse than ever, and they would be right.
“We saw more potholes this winter and spring just due to the nature of the weather we had, storm after storm,” Gleason said. “That kind of weather can really wreak havoc on the road.”
Along with planning to fix the bridge deck, UDOT has already fixed a portion of the West Side Belt between California Avenue and I-80. Additionally, Gleason said the I-215 West Belt also has major repairs happening this year.
