The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is conducting a state environmental study (SES) of U-111 between 11800 South and Herriman Boulevard. The study is being done to address the current and future growth in southwestern Salt Lake County and the surrounding areas. It will build on a previous planning study completed in 2021, more details are available here.

The study will:

  • Determine whether to extend U-111
  • Evaluate potential alignments for a possible roadway extension
  • Identify any corresponding impacts
  • Determine whether a no-build alternative is feasible

The SES began in December 2021 and is anticipated to be complete in March 2023. An online public scoping meeting to introduce the public to the study and gather feedback took place Wednesday, March 2, 2022 and an in-person public scoping meeting was held Thursday, March 3, 2022. 

 

What is U-111?

UDOT is referring to this study as the "U-111 Environmental Study" as a possible extension is evaluated. Locals may know U-111 as Bacchus Highway, S.R. 111, 7300 West or 8400 West. If a build alternative is selected after the study, a naming convention and road designation would follow.
