SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Transportation said in a press release sent to FOX 13 that drivers should plan ahead as there are multiple construction projects happening this weekend.

S.R. 201:

Eastbound S.R. 201 will close beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, and then westbound S.R. 201 will close by midnight. S.R. 201 will open in both directions by Saturday, July 16, at 6 a.m. During this closure, crews will place new beams for temporary bridges on I-215.

This work is being completed as part of the I-215 reconstruction project, which will repave the freeway between S.R. 201 and 4700 South with new concrete, rebuild the bridges at the I-215/S.R. 201 interchange, and add new exit-only lanes in both directions.

Also this weekend, northbound I-15 is scheduled to be reduced to one lane from 2100 North in Lehi to 14600 South in Bluffdale for three nights – Friday, July 15; Saturday, July 16; and Sunday, July 17. Lane closures will start as early as 8 p.m. each night, with northbound I-15 reduced to one lane by midnight. All lanes will reopen by 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday and by 5:30 a.m. on Monday. Crews will be paving and continuing bridge work as part of the I-15 widening project near the Point of the Mountain.

Bangerter Highway at I-15: The on-ramp from eastbound Bangerter Highway to southbound I-15 is scheduled to close from Friday, July 15, at 11 p.m., to Monday, July 18, at 6 a.m. Crews will be repairing the concrete pavement on the ramp. Eastbound drivers should get on northbound I-15, then use the 12300 South interchange to turn around onto southbound I-15.

I-15 in Lehi: Lane restrictions are scheduled on I-15 in Lehi near the Main Street (Exit 279) each night from Saturday, July 16, to Monday, July 18, while crews complete pavement repairs:

  • Northbound I-15 will be reduced to two lanes from Saturday, July 16, at 10 p.m. to Sunday, July 17, at 9 a.m. In addition, the northbound on-ramp from Main Street to I-15 will be closed during this time.
  • Southbound I-15 will be reduced to two lanes from Sunday, July 17, at 10 p.m., to Monday, July 18, at 6 a.m., and again from Monday, July 18, at 10 p.m., to Tuesday, July 19, at 6 a.m.
