Delays are expected as I-15 in Lehi will narrow from 5 lanes to 2 this weekend

Southbound Interstate 15 will be reduced from the normal five lanes to just two in Lehi for part of the upcoming weekend, so the Utah Department of Transportation is urging motorists to prepare for delays.

The lane closures are scheduled to begin Saturday at 11 p.m. and continue through Monday at 5:30 a.m.

The freeway will have only two lanes open from Saturday night to Sunday morning, when a third lane will open until Monday morning when all lanes are scheduled to reopen.

The lanes are closing for construction of a new southbound I-15 bridge over Lehi’s Main Street. UDOT is closing the lanes closest to the new bridge to prevent excessive vibration from vehicles, especially big-rig trucks, to allow new concrete to harden properly.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. Updated information is available on the UDOT Traffic app or online at udottraffic.utah.gov.
