I-15 construction begins in Davis County, West Valley City

DAVIS COUNTY (ABC 4 UTAH) - Get ready to see more orange barrels on I-15 through Davis County and other parts of Utah. The Utah Department of Transportation will be doing several projects which will cause traffic delays. There will be lane restrictions on southbound I-15 between Parrish Lane and 500 West and also in West Valley City on S.R. 201 from 5600 West to 9450 West. 

I-15 in Davis County, lane restrictions

Southbound I-15 is scheduled to be restricted to one lane between Parrish Lane and 500 West on Friday night, May 2, at 10 p.m. Workers will be shifting traffic to accommodate widening work on the shoulder of the freeway as part of the I-15 South Davis Improvements project. All lanes are scheduled to reopen by Saturday at 9 a.m.

I-15 in Brigham City, freeway closure

In Brigham City, I-15 is scheduled to close in both directions at the 1100 South/U.S. 91 interchange, tonight and Friday night (May 1-2), from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. All traffic will be able to travel through the closure via the off- and on-ramps at the interchange.

S.R. 201 in West Valley City, lane restrictions/traffic shift

All traffic on state Route 201 from 5600 West to 9450 West is scheduled to be shifted to the westbound lanes beginning Sunday morning, May 4. During this time, the speed limit in the work zone will be reduced to 50 mph.

Also, S.R. 201 will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 5600 West to 7200 West, except during commute times, when a movable barrier will be used to create an additional lane in the direction of the commute. Weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., two eastbound lanes will be open, and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., two westbound lanes will be open. To reduce delays, drivers should consider using I-80 as an alternate route. This traffic shift is scheduled to remain in place for approximately three months, and will allow crews to place new concrete pavement in the eastbound lanes.
