Heavy travel delays of 30 minutes or more are expected again this weekend on northbound Interstate 15 in Sandy.
Crews will reduce the freeway to two northbound lanes between 11400 South and 9400 South from 9 p.m. on Saturday through 5 a.m. on Monday.
That will allow bridge work at 10000 South (Sego Lily Drive). It is part of a project to widen I-15 from Bangerter Highway to 9400 South.
UDOT 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.
This project is expected to reduce crashes in the area by nearly 40% and reduce northbound travel times by 50%.
Also this weekend, drivers should plan for lane and ramp closures while UDOT crews complete maintenance inspections in several areas along I-15 and I-215. They include:
