Heat-buckled section of I-15 reopens near Bluffdale
Utah Department of Transportation crews have repaired a stretch of Interstate 15 that buckled due to weekend heat.
Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson confirmed Monday that the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) and left inside lanes of I-15 southbound near Bluffdale had been reopened.
The two lanes had been closed down Sunday afternoon near 14600 South after 90-plus degree weather damaged the roadway's asphalt surface, causing at least two vehicular tire blowouts.
No injuries were reported.
