For Immediate Release
I-15 to Close for Two Nights in Box Elder County This Week
Interstate closure will allow crews to build new bridge over I-15 in Honeyville
SALT LAKE CITY (Jan. 2, 2018) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises northern Utah drivers to plan ahead for two overnight closures on I-15 in Box Elder County this week. I-15 will close in both directions at Exit 372 in Honeyville on Wednesday, Jan. 3, and Thursday, Jan. 4, from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. each night for bridge construction.
While crews install new steel beams for the new bridge, UDOT will divert all I-15 traffic onto the off- and on-ramps at exit 372 in Honeyville. Drivers will still be able to continue on I-15, but will need to plan for reduced speeds and moderate delays and allow extra time to travel through the detour. Motorists with time-sensitive travel should consider using alternate routes, such as parallel SR-13, at either Elwood or Corinne, or via SR-38, at either Collinston or Brigham City. Intermittent lane closures on I-15 may take place through the remainder of the week.
Then, on the nights of Monday, Jan. 8 and Tuesday, Jan. 9, northbound I-15 will be closed in this area for bridge work. All lanes on southbound I-15 will remain open during this time. Construction on this project is scheduled for completion this spring.
