John Gleason from UDOT provided an update on construction projects including I-215 paving, I-15 paving near Ogden, and I-15 at the Point of the Mountain.
- This weekend, westbound I-215 will be reduced to one lane between 300 East and Redwood Road from Friday night to Monday morning.
- Drivers should expect delays and consider using alternate routes if possible. If you’re heading to the Salt Lake Airport, use I-15 instead.
- These same restrictions are in place each night during the week while crews remove old asphalt and repave this section of the freeway. Construction is scheduled to be complete in mid July.
- This work is being done as part of our major I-215 reconstruction that is replacing the concrete pavement and adding exit-only lanes from S.R. 201 to 4700 South.
- Also this weekend, eastbound I-80 will be reduced to one lane during overnight hours, and to two lanes during the day, from State Street to 2300 East. The eastbound off- and on-ramps at both State Street and 700 East will be closed during this time.
- These restrictions will start as early as 8 p.m. Friday night, with all lanes open by 5 a.m. on Monday.
- Crews will be completing pavement repairs on eastbound I-80 in this area.
- On I-15 near the Point of the Mountain, nighttime lane closures continue up to seven days a week.
- Most of the work is happening now between 12300 South and Bangerter Highway, where crews are paving new concrete and widening the freeway. But work continues through the whole project from Draper to Lehi.
- When the project is complete this fall, I-15 will be widened to six lanes in both directions, which should help reduce delays for commuters between Salt Lake and Utah County.
