SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah)- If you’re headed to the airport this weekend expect delays.

The Utah Department of Transportation will be reducing eastbound I-80 to one lane between Bangerter Highway and I-215 starting Friday night at 8 p.m. The on-ramp from the airport exit, southbound Terminal Drive, to eastbound I-80 will also be closed.
