Traffic Pattern Changes
The Point Project—Improving I-15 from Lehi to Draper
NEW / UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- The night of July 30, crews will shift the southbound lanes of I-15 onto the new 14600 South bridge. Expect lane closures starting at 9 p.m. Be prepared for a new traffic configuration Friday morning.
- Southbound lane splits will be put into place on I-15 from Bangerter Highway to S.R. 92. Crews will begin shifting lanes for the split as early as August 8.
- Watch the weekly updates or follow The Point on Twitter for more information.
- On the evenings of Friday, July 31, and Saturday, August 1, demolition of the old southbound bridge will begin at 8 p.m. with the closure of 14600 South at the freeway. The road will be open the following mornings by 8 a.m.
- Clean up work may continue on Sunday night, August 2, from 10 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.
- I-15 and the interchange ramps will remain open during this work. There will be no east/west access under I-15. Use the Frontage Roads to Bangerter Highway as an alternate route. See the detour route.
- Area residents should expect increased nighttime construction noise, including jackhammers.
ONGOING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- The northbound lane split on I-15 extends from S.R. 92 to Bangerter Highway. See how it works here.
- Drivers planning to exit at 14600 South OR Bangerter Highway need to stay right at the split. All four lanes continue north on I-15.
- With this alignment, the northbound lanes over the bridge are marked with solid white lanes, rather than dashed lines. For your safety, please remain in your lane; it is illegal to cross solid white traffic lines in this area.
- Expect frequent nighttime triple-lane closures on I-15 throughout July. Crews may go down to a single lane in each direction starting at 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and at midnight Friday and Saturday.
- Work continues at the interchange to relocate utilities and construct the new northbound bridge.
- Motorists can expect intermittent flagging operations and reduced lane widths in this area during the day and lane restrictions at night.
- Nightly single lane closures with one-way flagging operations are ongoing on both the east and west Frontage Roads while crews relocate utilities.
- Expect short-term delays and an increase in nighttime noise and construction activity through summer 2015.
To better accommodate traffic in the construction zone, the Express Lanes from S.R. 92 to 12300 South are now general purpose lanes for the duration of the project. Outside of the project limits, Express Lanes will function as normal.
Please be aware that the speed limit in the construction zone is 55 mph. For the duration of the project, UHP will be monitoring the construction zone and enforcing the speed limit. Use caution in the corridor, as the shoulders are narrow. Safety pullouts are available every half-mile in the project corridor.
Work activities and schedules are subject to change.
