WASATCH FRONT (News4Utah)- Drivers in the Wasatch Front may experience some delays this weekend.

The Utah Department of Transportation has some major closures planned.

Crews are wrapping up construction for a new wildlife overpass up Parleys Canyon. The eastbound lanes will close Thursday night into Friday morning between East Canyon and Jeremy Ranch.

On Friday night, they say the southbound I-15 ramp to I-215 in North Salt Lake will close at 9 p.m. to Monday, Aug. 6, at 5 a.m. When the ramp opens on Monday morning, it will be restricted to one lane, and this lane restriction will remain in place through the following Friday.

Those headed to the airport should use I-80 as an alternate route. Workers will continue paving and barrier construction on I-215 during this closure as part of a project to repave I-215 from I-15 to 2100 North. Crews are also building a new diverging diamond interchange at I-215 and Redwood Road.

Also on Friday night, the 10600 South bridge over I-15 is scheduled to close at 9 p.m. to Monday, Aug. 6, before the morning commute. 

All I-15 on- and off-ramps at 10600 South will remain open, but drivers will not be able to cross I-15. Alternate exits include 9000 South and 11400 South. During the closure, crews will apply a thin weatherproofing coating to the bridge pavement to help it last longer.  

Moving further south, on Saturday night the northbound lanes on I-15 in Lehi will be split between 2100 North and S.R. 92. The split will be in place for several months, UDOT officials say.

Drivers planning to exit at S.R. 92 will need to merge into the two right lanes prior to 2100 North. The lane split will allow work to continue on the new Triumph Boulevard bridge, part of the I-15 Technology Corridor project.
