If you plan on driving through Beaver County along Interstate 15 this week, you might want to add a little more time to your travel plans.
Utah Department of Transportation crews began work late Sunday to move a replacement bridge north of Beaver near mile post 116. That project is expected to take until sometime this Thursday to complete.
In the interim, I-15 traffic through the area will be reduced to one lane, crossing over to the opposite side for motorists to navigate the construction zone.
Wide loads exceeding 14 and a half feet are banned from that the portion of the freeway until the project is completed.
