FARMINGTON — The planned new I-15 interchange at Shephard Lane in Farmington, where preliminary work is already underway, won’t be the only new access point along the interstate.

Plans are in the works further north to build a new interchange along I-15 at 1800 North, adjacent to Hill Air Force Base in Sunset, with work scheduled to start next year. A new gate to Hill Air Force Base is to be built at the location as well. Meantime, the Utah Department of Transportation is planning to expand the interchange at West 24th Street in Ogden, though the efforts are in the preliminary stages and still subject to public comment.

Increasing traffic levels, perhaps not surprisingly, figure big in the plans as more people crowd into the Wasatch Front, augmenting road congestion. “Yes, growth and increasing traffic spurred the project,” said UDOT spokesman Mitch Shaw, alluding to the interchange plans at Shephard Lane, where work began in earnest earlier this month.

However, he said new paths for pedestrians and cyclists are also planned as part of the Shephard Lane project, and another objective is to make it easier to travel from one side of Farmington to another.
