SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan for major travel restrictions on Interstate 15 in Davis County and Bangerter Highway in Salt Lake County starting Friday night.

The construction is part of the 175 projects currently underway around the state.

Starting at around 8 p.m. Friday, Northbound I-15 will be reduced to one lane
from about Parrish Lane in Centerville to 200 West in Farmington as crews lay down temporary paving.

The newly-constructed temporary lanes will remain in place until the larger project is completed by the end of 2023. Once finished, commuting is expected to ease along the corridor.

"People that live in Davis County will have a much better way to commute to the south, to Salt Lake City, and to the east to I-215, reducing congestion on I-15 and their commuting times. It'll be a great benefit for those who are traveling in the Davis County area," said Rex Harris, UDOT Project Director for West Davis Highway.

In Salt Lake County, Bangerter Highway will close in both directions at SR-201 on Friday at 8:00 p.m. through Monday, May 2, at 5:00 a.m. for pavement maintenance.

All right turns from the interchange ramps will remain open, but all left turns will be closed. 

"If you're heading out to Salt Lake International, and this is your typical route, you may want to avoid Bangerter Highway this weekend and use I-15 or I-215 as an alternate," said John Gleason with UDOT.
