CLEARFIELD, Utah (ABC4) – Utah’s wet start to Tuesday has caused construction to be delayed on I-15 in Davis County.
Once removed, the split will open up a third southbound lane on this segment of I-15.
Unfortunately, the snow and rain Utah saw Monday night into Tuesday morning has put the construction on hold.
UDOT Region One says the southbound split has been delayed until Wednesday. They are now scheduled to be gone by Thursday, October 21.

ORIGINAL STORY: New traffic pattern coming to I-15 in Davis, Weber counties

CLEARFIELD, Utah (ABC4) – If you travel between Roy and Clearfield on I-15, you may want to plan ahead for a new traffic pattern.
As early as Tuesday, the southbound lane split between 5600 South in Roy to 650 North in Clearfield will be removed. The split was installed to accommodate bridge work and widening in the median of I-15. Once it is removed, there will be three southbound lanes in this segment of I-15.
If you are driving in the area, UDOT warns lane reductions will take place on I-15 between Roy and Clearfield from 8 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday as crews remove the lane split.
“The removal of the southbound lane split is the result of significant progress on the project,” says Brett Slater, UDOT I-15 Express Lanes project manager. “Drivers can expect to benefit from the new Express Lane in the coming months.”
The northbound lane split is still in place for the bridge replacement and widening at 200 South. This is expected to be removed in a couple of months.
UDOT is currently extending the I-15 Express Lanes from Layton Parkway to Riverdale Road. The project is intended to help improve traffic flow and reduce congestion along I-15.
More improvements include new bridges at Church Street and 200 South, wider bridges and deck replacements at five locations, new ramp meters, other ramp improvements, and concrete panel replacement from Hill Field Road to I-84.
Construction began in May 2019 and is scheduled to finish this fall. For the latest project information, visit UDOT’s website.
