NEWS RELEASE: Eastbound I-80 to Close This Weekend in Salt Lake City

For Immediate Release 

Eastbound I-80 to Close This Weekend in Salt Lake City

Drivers also advised to plan for closure of S.R. 201 near Tooele County and event traffic in Utah County

 

SALT LAKE CITY (Aug. 24, 2017) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers to plan for a full closure of eastbound I-80 this weekend in Salt Lake City. Eastbound I-80 will close between the I-215 split and Foothill Drive from Friday, Aug. 25, at 9 p.m. to Monday, Aug. 28, at 5 a.m.

During this closure, all traffic will be detoured onto the I-215 east belt. Drivers will then need to exit at 3300 South, get onto northbound I-215, and follow the signs to eastbound I-80. Heavy congestion and delays of 30-40 minutes are expected along the detour route. UDOT recommends planning ahead, allowing plenty of extra time, and using alternate routes if possible. This closure will allow construction crews to complete maintenance work on the eastbound I-80 bridge over I-215.

 

Also this weekend, Tooele County travelers should plan for an overnight closure on S.R. 201 at the I-80 junction (I-80 exit 102). S.R. 201 will be closed from Friday, Aug. 25, at 9 p.m. through Saturday, Aug. 26, at 10 a.m. for bridge maintenance. Drivers will be detoured to S.R. 202, and should allow extra travel time.

 

In Utah County, two events are scheduled this Saturday, with Brigham Young University’s first home football game scheduled to start at 1 p.m., and the LoveLoud concert at Utah Valley University scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m.

Drivers should plan to use 800 North and Center Street in Orem as routes to LaVell Edwards Stadium. For the LoveLoud concert, drivers should exit I-15 at Orem Center Street and use 1200 West. UDOT traffic engineers recommend avoiding University Parkway due to construction and expected heavy delays.

 

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. For the latest information on traffic restrictions during construction, visit the UDOT Traffic website (udottraffic.utah.gov) or download the UDOT Traffic app for iPhone or Android. Drivers can also follow UDOT on social media including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

NEWS RELEASE: Westbound I-215 to Close This Weekend Near Parley’s Canyon

For Immediate Release

 

 

Westbound I-215 to Close This Weekend Near Parley’s Canyon

Heavy delays expected along detour route; drivers warned to use alternate routes

 

SALT LAKE CITY (June 22, 2017) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers to plan for a full closure of westbound I-215 this weekend near Parley’s Canyon. Westbound I-215 will close between Foothill Drive and the westbound I-80 junction near 2300 East from Friday, June 23, at 9 p.m. to Monday, June 26, at 5 a.m.

During this closure, drivers will be detoured onto eastbound I-80 at Exit 2. They will then need to continue east up Parley’s Canyon to Exit 132 (Mount Aire Road), where they can turn around onto westbound I-80.  This detour route is approximately eight miles long, and heavy congestion and delays are expected. Drivers should plan ahead by allowing extra travel time, or using alternate routes and avoiding this section of I-215.

 

This closure will allow crews to break up the existing concrete and pave over it with new asphalt as part of a major pavement maintenance project on I-80 and I-215 in eastern Salt Lake City.

 

In addition, I-80 is reduced to one lane in each direction on weeknights between 1300 East and the I-80/I-215 split as part of this project.

 

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. For the latest information on traffic restrictions during construction, visit the UDOT Traffic website (udottraffic.utah.gov) or download the UDOT Traffic app for iPhone or Android.
