Utah (ABC4) – UDOT will reopen lanes in construction zones across the state to make the holiday weekend commute easier. However, there will still be some delays for your weekend commute.
- I-215 from S.R. 201 to 4700 South in Salt Lake County: The northbound lane split on I-215 will remain in place for the next several months. The speed limit has been lowered to 60 miles an hour in the work zone. Crews are reconstructing the I-215 west belt from S.R. 201 to 4700 South with new concrete, adding new exit-only lanes, and installing new lighting, signals, and traffic management systems.
- I-15 from Exit 4 to Exit 5 in St. George: All lanes are open on I-15, but lanes are narrowed, traffic is shifted, and the speed limit is reduced in the work zone between exits 4 and 5 (Brigham Road and Dixie Drive). Work continues to widen the freeway and construct two new bridges over the Virgin River.
- I-70 from Exit 37 to Exit 40 in Richfield: I-70 is reduced to one lane in each direction, and the speed limit is reduced to 65 miles per hour. Loads over 12 feet wide are prohibited. Crews are reconstructing the interstate and completing bridge maintenance work.
- Lanes are narrow and shift frequently through the work zone from UVU to University Avenue. Drivers should plan to use 800 North or Center Street in Orem as alternate routes, as well as University Avenue in Provo. UDOT engineers will be coordinating signal timing along those routes to help traffic flow to and from the event.
