I-15 To Close In Layton Friday Night; Delays Possible In Sandy, Lehi

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Department of Transportation will completely close Interstate 15 in Layton Friday night as crews pour concrete as part of the project to rebuild the Gentile Street bridge.

I-15 is scheduled to close in both directions in Layton as early as 10 p.m. on Friday, according to a UDOT news release.

The freeway will be closed between Antelope Drive and Layton Parkway, and all traffic will be detoured to Main Street and back onto I-15.

Drivers should follow detour signs and plan for some delays.

The Gentile Street bridge over I-15 will remain closed until the project is finished in early September.

The bridge work is part of the I-15 Express Lanes project, which is widening I-15 and extending the Express Lanes from Layton to Riverdale.

American Fork/Lehi Closures

Another I-15 construction project will affect weekend traffic in northern Utah County.

Northbound I-15 will be reduced to three lanes between Main Street in American Fork and 600 East in Lehi beginning Saturday at 10:30 p.m. through Monday at 5:30 a.m., the release said.

Crews are also pouring concrete as they build a bridge over Lehi’s Main Street. This is part of the I-15 Technology Corridor Project.

That project includes work on 17 new or reconstructed bridges to widen the freeway to six lanes in both directions from Lehi’s Main Street to S.R. 92.

Sandy Closures

In Sandy, 9000 South will close in both directions between Monroe Street and I-15 Starting Saturday at 8 p.m. through Monday at 5 a.m.

This section of 9000 South will also be closed next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.

These closures will allow crews to place beams for a new bridge over 9000 South as part of a future ramp system designed to improve safety and traffic flow on northbound I-15 from 9400 South to I-215, the release said.
