For Immediate Release

I-15 To Close For Eight Hours This Weekend in Lehi

Additional restrictions scheduled on I-215 and S.R. 108; drivers advised to use alternate routes

 SALT LAKE CITY (May 31, 2018) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers to plan for a full closure of I-15 this weekend in Lehi.

I-15 is scheduled to close Sunday, June 3, from midnight to 8 a.m. (an eight hour total closure) between 2100 North and Lehi Main Street. Drivers should plan ahead and avoid the area if possible or allow extra time to travel the detour route.

During this closure, construction crews will demolish the 600 East bridge over the freeway as part of the I-15 Technology Corridor project. This project is widening I-15 to six lanes in both directions and rebuilding the interstate with all-new pavement from S.R. 92 to Lehi Main Street. Construction will continue through late 2020.

UDOT also advises drivers to be aware of other restrictions scheduled to begin in the next few days:

 

  • Westbound I-215 ramp to Redwood Road: The ramp from westbound I-215 to Redwood Road in Taylorsville will close Friday, June 1, at 10 p.m. to Monday, June 4, at 6 a.m. All other ramps at the interchange will remain open, but westbound drivers will need to use another exit. Crews are widening the off-ramp to add another left-turn lane onto southbound Redwood Road.
  • S.R. 108 from Antelope Drive to 1275 South: S.R. 108 will close in both directions between Antelope Drive and 1275 South in Syracuse Friday night, June 1, at 8 p.m. The road will remain closed through August 21, and drivers will need to use alternate routes. This full closure will allow crews to complete widening work on this section of the highway while school is out for the summer.

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.
