Portions of westbound I-215 to close this weekend

Local News

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- Portions of I-215 will be closed near Parleys Canyon this weekend.

Officials with Utah Department of Transportation say westbound I-215 will close between Foothill Drive and the westbound I-80 junction near 2300 East starting Friday, June 23rd at 9 p.m. until Monday at 5 a.m.

Drivers will be detoured onto eastbound 1-80 at Exit 2. They will continue east up the canyon to Exit 132 called Mount Aire Road. From there they can turn onto westbound I-80.

The detour is about eight miles long so drivers should expect delays and plan ahead.

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