UDOT to Close Northbound I-15 in Layton for Two Additional Nights

Northbound I-15 will close overnight both Monday and Tuesday for bridge demolition

SALT LAKE CITY (June 29, 2020) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will close northbound Interstate 15 (I-15) in Layton between Layton Parkway and Hill Field Road again tonight and tomorrow night, June 29 and 30. The closures will allow crews to complete demolition of the Gentile Street bridge deck over I-15, which was extended due to weather and materials issues.

Northbound I-15 will be closed tonight and tomorrow night during the hours below:

·       Tonight at 10 p.m. to Tuesday, June 30, at 5 a.m.

·       Tuesday, June 30, at 10 p.m. to Wednesday, July 1, at 5 a.m.

During this time, southbound I-15 will also be reduced to one lane from Hill Field Road to Layton Parkway.  

All northbound traffic will be detoured off I-15 at Layton Parkway, and then back onto the freeway via Main Street and Hill Field Road. Drivers should plan ahead for heavy delays, allow extra time to travel the detour route, and avoid the area if possible.

The reconstructed Gentile Street bridge over I-15 is scheduled to open in late August. This work is being done as part of the I-15 Express Lanes project, which is extending the Express Lanes on I-15 from Layton Parkway to Riverdale Road. To contact the project team with questions or to sign up for text alerts and email updates, call 833-I15-XPRS or email i15express@utah.gov

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. For the latest information on traffic patterns and restrictions during construction, visit the UDOT Traffic website (udottraffic.utah.gov) or download the UDOT Traffic app for iPhone or Android. Drivers are also encouraged to visit the project website, udot.utah.gov/i15express, to sign up for regular email updates and real-time text alerts about delays in the work zone.
