Traffic Pattern Changes
The Point Project—Improving I-15 from Lehi to Draper
NEW / UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- Due to the late start of the BYU game, crews plan to start closing lanes on northbound I-15 at 12 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 11 to avoid a conflict with game traffic. Southbound lane closures will begin at 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10. Motorists should plan ahead to avoid delays.
- As early as Monday, Oct. 12, crews plan to shift northbound I-15 out of the lane split between 14600 South and Bangerter Highway. The two left lanes will be shifted onto new concrete pavement for the first time.
- The northbound lane split under Bangerter will remain in place. Drivers should stay to the right to exit at Bangerter Highway.
- Crews plan to shift traffic onto new asphalt on the 14600 South off-ramp during the night of October 13. Motorists will still be able to use the ramp during this work but should use extra caution in this area.
- Crews plan to set the overhead electronic message sign near the 11400 South southbound off-ramp as early as the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 14. There will be a rolling slowdown from 1–3 a.m. in that area. Plan ahead to avoid delays.
ONGOING CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
- 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 October. 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.
- Crews continue work on the new southbound auxiliary lane retaining wall from S.R. 92 to 2100 North. During the month of October, there will be daytime shoulder closures and nighttime flagging on Thanksgiving way from 10 p.m. – 7 a.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. – 10 a.m. on weekends. Work will include moving utility lines, improving drainage systems and building retaining walls.
- 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.
