The Utah Dept. of Transportation has scheduled lane restrictions and closures in Salt Lake County and throughout Utah.

In Salt Lake City, eastbound I-80 will be closed at I-215 from midnight Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday for concrete repair. Several on- and off-ramps in the downtown area will also be closed:

  • 500 South to southbound I-15

  • southbound I-15 to westbound I-80

On I-215, there will be nightly lane restrictions between Parley’s Canyon and 6200 South. Additionally, there will be ramp closures at California Ave., SR-201 and Union Park Ave. for pavement repairs and barrier work.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on 5400 South between Bangerter Highway to 4800 West for the next several months to widen the roadway. To accommodate commuter travel, UDOT will open two lanes of eastbound traffic between 6 and 9 a.m. and westbound traffic between 3 and 7 p.m.

In Southern Utah, SR-14 is reduced to one lane from Cedar City Center Street to Cedar Canyon for repaving. The restriction will be in place from Thursday to Saturday.

I-70 is reduced to one lane between Fremont Junction and Salt Wash for repaving. The restriction will last through July.
