30-minute delays expected on northbound I-15 in Sandy
(Courtesy photo from UDOT) UDOT is adding a new “collector-distributor” system — a stretch of new freeway lanes parallel to Interstate 15 — in Sandy. UDOT warns of delays of up to 30 minutes there this weekend because of lane closures for construction work.
The Utah Department of Transportation is again warning drivers to expect delays of up to 30 minutes on northbound Interstate 15 in Sandy this weekend.
It is planning to reduce northbound I-15 to two lanes between 11400 South and 9400 South from Saturday at 9 p.m. through Monday at 5 a.m.
However, it warns that because of forecasts for stormy weather, the lane closures may be postponed for a week. Updated information about plans is available online at udottraffic.utah.gov
or on the UDOT Traffic app.
The closures will allow crews to continue work on a bridge at 10000 South (Sego Lily Drive). UDOT advises drivers to expect delays or use alternate routes.
The bridge work is part of a project to widen-15 and add a new travel lane from Bangerter Highway to 9400 South.
It is also constructing a collector-distributor system from 9400 South to I-215. The new collector/distributor system is similar to the one between 2100 South and 900 South in Salt Lake City and has a three-lane freeway section separated from the I-15 travel lanes by a concrete barrier.
It is designed to improve access to I-215 and 7200 South and to enhance safety for drivers.
