Traffic Pattern Changes
The Point Project—Improving I-15 from Lehi to Draper
NEW / UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- A new lane split is now in place on I-15 at the Point of the Mountain. The split divides the northbound lanes into two sections while crews reconstruct the center lanes of the freeway from S.R. 92 to 14600 South.
- All four lanes will continue north on I-15 – however, drivers planning to exit at 14600 South need to stay right. The lane split allows UDOT to keep all four lanes open through construction along this busy section of I-15.
- All four lanes have been reopened at S.R. 92 (previously, one northbound lane was closed at the interchange). To better control traffic merging onto I-15, the ramp meter for the northbound S.R. 92 on-ramp to I-15 has been turned on.
- As early as July 9, crews will shift the northbound on-ramp overnight. One lane on the ramp will be closed one night for this work.
- Area residents can expect an increase in nighttime noise and construction activity during this work including increased light, vibration, and vehicle/equipment activity.
ONGOING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- 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 build retaining walls and relocate utilities.
- Expect short-term delays and an increase in nighttime noise and construction activity through spring 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.
