UPDATE: Traffic on I-15 was opened hours before expected and seems to be flowing normally.
LAYTON, Utah — A water line rupture under or near Interstate 15 has fully closed the freeway heading south at approximately mile post 331 near Hill Field Road.
A spokesman with the Utah Department of Transportation said the closure was anticipated to last for up to 10 hours. If the water break is under the road it is likely a section will need to be torn up so repairs can be made. It wasn’t clear if the water could be coming from a break near, but not under, the freeway.
