SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4) – Driving to the Salt Lake City International Airport this weekend? If so, make sure to plan ahead for scheduled ramp closures along I-80 this weekend.

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) announced a weekend ramp closure affecting westbound I-80 to the Salt Lake Airport. The ramp will be closed on Friday, October 1, at 8 p.m. and will reopen by Monday, October 4, at 4 a.m.

UDOT recommends planning alternate travel routes to access the airport using I-215 and Bangerter Highway. Airport access from the northbound I-215 ramp to westbound I-80 will remain open.

The ramp closure will allow crews to replace sections of concrete barriers, part of a project focused on upgrading several sections of I-80 in Salt Lake City.

This follows a similar announcement in August for those heading to Vegas for the weekend. If you’re driving south on I-15 toward Nevada, be prepared for traffic. The Virgin River Bridge along 1-15 (Milepost 9) in Arizona will be replaced with a new bridge in the next few years, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT).
