Traffic Pattern Changes
The Point Project—Improving I-15 from Lehi to Draper
NEW / UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- To improve traffic flow over the holiday weekend, there are no planned lane closures in the Point project from Friday, Sept. 4 – Monday, Sept. 7. Nighttime lanes closures will resume on Tuesday at 9 p.m. Please plan ahead and travel safely during the holiday.
- Crews will be shifting traffic onto new asphalt on the northbound 14600 South off-ramp during the night of September 3. Motorists will still be able to use the ramp during this work but should use extra caution in this area.
ONGOING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- As a reminder, the southbound lane split from Bangerter Highway to 14600 South will be in place for the next few weeks. Drivers should stay right to exit at 14600 South.
- Nightly single-lane closures on I-15 start at 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
- Expect frequent nighttime triple-lane closures on I-15 throughout September. Crews may reduce I-15 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 southbound 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 Fall 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.
