SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Department of Transportation wants drivers to be aware of a few construction projects that will affect the flow of traffic on I-15 near the Point of the Mountain and in Bountiful.
UDOT crews will be installing a new lane split at the Point of the Mountain and they will also close some lanes in Bountiful to allow concrete to cure. The schedules of these construction projects are subject to change due to equipment issues or weather conditions. The details of each project are listed below.
I-15 at the Point of the Mountain
A new lane split is scheduled to be in place on northbound I-15 at the Point of the Mountain starting as early as the morning of Sunday, June 28. The split will divide the northbound lanes into two sections while crews reconstruct the center lanes of the freeway. As part of this split, the two outside lanes will be shifted onto the new permanent pavement for the first time.
All four lanes will continue north on I-15 – however, drivers planning to exit at 14600 South will need to stay right. The lane split will allow UDOT to keep all four lanes open through construction along this busy section of I-15.
Once this split is in place, all four lanes will be reopened at S.R. 92 (currently, one northbound lane is closed at the interchange). To better control traffic merging onto I-15, the ramp meter for the northbound S.R. 92 on-ramp to I-15 will be turned on.

Southbound I-15 is scheduled to be restricted to three lanes near 400 North in Bountiful for barrier work. Beginning as early as Friday, June 26, at 4 p.m., crews will close the right lane of southbound I-15. This restriction is scheduled to remain in place through Saturday, June 27, at 4 p.m. to allow the concrete to cure.
Northbound I-15 is scheduled to be restricted to three lanes near 2600 South in Bountiful this weekend. Beginning as early as Saturday, June 27, at 6 p.m., crews will close one northbound lane for bridge work. This restriction is scheduled to remain in place through Monday, June 29, at 6 a.m. Drivers should plan ahead for minor delays during this time, and consider using alternate routes such as Legacy Parkway.
