TAYLORSVILLE — Some areas of Bangerter Highway are closed in Taylorsville this weekend.

The road is set to reopen at 5 a.m. Monday.

This is part of a plan from the Utah Department of Transportation to build a new interchange at 4700 South and eliminate stoplights on Bangerter Highway.

A longer 12-month closure is scheduled to begin there this June.

Meanwhile, further south on I-15, drivers should use alternate routes through Las Vegas this weekend.

I-15 along the corridor through Las Vegas will be closed in both directions between Flamingo Road and Russell Road, through 5 a.m. Monday.

The Nevada Department of Transportation will close the freeway in that area as crews demolish part of a bridge. Drivers in the area should expect significant delays.

While I-15 is closed, NDOT recommends drivers use the 215 beltway on the west side of the Las Vegas Valley. Utahns planning to visit the Las Vegas Strip should exit at Sahara Avenue, Spring Mountain Road or Flamingo Road.
