GAME DAY TRAFFICOptimize Mobility, by Catherine Higgins.
Heading to the big game on Saturday, September 17? I-15 CORE construction will cause traffic delay on I-15 that may make the trip up to twice as long. Leaving early is the best strategy for making the game in time for kickoff.
UDOT strongly encourages southbound drivers to use the Orem Center Street, 800 North and University Avenue exits. University Parkway is open but heavily congested. Northbound drivers are advised to use the University Avenue exit or State Street to 900 East.
One change drivers will need to plan for is in Provo, where the southbound off-ramp at Center Street is closed through November.
Here are some ways UDOT is helping fans avoid some inconvenience:
- On game day, UDOT will be working with Orem and Provo to monitor traffic cameras and coordinate signals to help keep vehicles moving. UDOT will also send regular traffic updates to KSL Radio to keep drivers informed of the best routes for getting to and from the stadium.
- Football fans can subscribe to the I-15 CORE text service for traffic updates. Text “i15″ to 53535 for up-to-date construction information.
- UDOT encourages drivers to stay informed about the latest I-15 CORE construction by signing up for regular email updates, or becoming a fan of I-15 CORE on Facebook or Twitter.
