The Utah Department of Transportation says that road construction will lead to closures this weekend on Bangerter Highway in Taylorsville and on Interstate 15 in Orem.

Bangerter Highway will close in both directions at 6200 South from Friday at 11 p.m. until Saturday morning at 6. Drivers should follow signs for designated detours.

Crews will be removing a pedestrian bridge as part of a project that is constructing three new freeway-style interchanges on Bangerter at 6200 South, 10400 South and 12600 South.

In Orem, southbound I-15 will close at Center Street from 10:30 p.m. on Saturday until 10 a.m. on Sunday. All southbound traffic will be detoured off I-15 at Center Street and then back onto the freeway via Geneva Road and University Parkway.

Crews are placing beams for a new pedestrian bridge that will cross I-15 and railroad tracks near Utah Valley University.

Also in Lehi, southbound I-15 will be reduced to three lanes between 2100 North and Main Street from Saturday at 10 p.m. until Monday at 6 a.m. Crews there are continuing to widen and reconstruct bridges as part of the I-15 Technology Corridor project.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. Updates are available on the UDOT Traffic website, udottraffic.utah.gov, or via UDOT Traffic app for smartphones.
