Several freeway construction projects this weekend could create significant delays — of up to an hour in some places — for crowds traveling to such events as LDS General Conference and the Utah State-BYU football game.
Key road work includes:
I-15 in Layton • Delays of up to an hour on Saturday and 25 minutes on Friday night are expected as I-15 will be reduced to two lanes in each direction near Hill Field Road for bridge work from Friday at 8 p.m. to Monday at 6 a.m.
The Utah Department of Transportation is urging drivers to use a combination of U.S, 89 and Interstate 84 as alternate routes to avoid the work area.
I-15 in Lehi • Southbound Interstate 15 will be reduced to two lanes between 2100 North and Main Street for bridge maintenance from Friday at 8 p.m. to Monday at 6 a.m. UDOT said it expects delays of up to 45 minutes on Saturday afternoon and Sunday evening.
I-215 in Salt Lake City • It will be reduced to one lane in each direction at 700 North and to two lanes in each direction between I-80 and SR 201 from Friday at 9 p.m. to Monday at 5 a.m. Crews will be completing bridge maintenance at several locations.
I-80 in Parleys Canyon • It will be reduced to one lane in each direction Sunday through Thursday. Crews are continuing installation of a drainage system along the freeway between the I-215 on-ramp at the mouth of the canyon and Exit 132.
