UDOT is warning commuters of closures and restrictions this weekend.

Wasatch Back:

A bridge will be replaced this weekend on I-80 at the Wanship interchange. Eastbound I-80 will be closed between Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m. Drivers are encouraged to use I-84 through Ogden as an alternate route.

Lane restrictions and flagging will be in place while crews repave the intersection of US-40 and US-189 in Heber City. Work will require daytime closures, so drivers should expect minor delays.

Salt Lake County:

The westbound I-80 to southbound I-215 ramp and the northbound I-215 to eastbound I-80 will close nightly from Thursday starting at 10 p.m. to Saturday at 5 a.m. Drivers are encouraged to use 1300 East as an alternate route.

There will be nighttime lane closures on northbound I-15 between 7200 South and 3300 South. There will also be intermittent ramp closures in the area. Crews are applying new lane markings that are more reflective and require less maintenance.

Utah County:

The Orem Center Street interchange is scheduled to open as early as Monday morning. Crews have converted it to a Single Point Urban Interchange to improve traffic flow.

The southbound off-ramp at University Parkway is scheduled to close as early as Saturday night at 8 p.m. to Monday morning at 5:30 a.m. for paving. The ramp will also close for several nights beginning Monday. Drivers can use Provo Center Street or 800 North in Orem as alternate routes.

800 North in Orem is scheduled to close under I-15 for up to five nights beginning on Saturday at 9 p.m. The road will reopen at 5:30 a.m. each morning. All on- and off-ramps at 800 North will remain open during this time, but drivers wanting to cross under I-15 should use Orem Center Street or 1600 North as alternate routes.

All construction work depends on weather and other conditions. For the latest on UDOT closures and restrictions, visit, follow @UtahDOTon twitter, utahdot on Facebook or download one of the free UDOT apps for iPhone and Android.
