The Utah Department of Transportation is expecting minimal delays over the holiday weekend, with nearly all construction projects suspended starting July 4. The break will allow for all lanes of traffic to be open for travelers.

Heading into the holiday weekend, drivers might experience slight delays Wednesday in the following areas:

  • Northbound I-15 in Davis County 
  • North and southbound I-15 in Salt Lake County 
  • Southbound I-15 in Nephi Area
