SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- The Utah Department of Transportation is warning drivers to expect heavy delays across the state as drivers head to Idaho and Wyoming to get a better view of the solar eclipse.
As many as 50,000 additional vehicles are expected to pass through Utah this weekend. Northbound traffic should be heavier than normal through Sunday evening. UDOT says expect delays from Brigham City to the I-84 split in Tremonton.
Monday evening traffic is expected to be busy in the southbound lanes as drivers return home.
UDOT says they plan on suspending most construction projects to help reduce delays.
Demand surrounding the solar eclipse is driving up the cost of gas prices as well. The average this summer is already 20 cents higher than last year.
