SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah drivers will see road closures across the Wasatch Front throughout the weekend.
Beginning at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, westbound lanes of 10600 South in Sandy will be closed between 290 West and Jordan Gateway. Crews will begin bridge construction work on UTA's FrontRunner South line to Provo.
Eastbound traffic will be restricted by one or two lane closures.
UTA recommends drivers headed west on 10600 South should use a detour east to State Street and north to 9000 South, then west to Jordan Gateway and south to 10600 South.
UTA plans to make this same closure over the next three weekends to work on the line.
Redwood Road will also be closed between 8020 South and 8150 South beginning at 10:00 p.m. Saturday. It will reopen at 2:00 p.m. Sunday.
The closure is to finalize installation of new rail at the crossing for the Mid-Jordan TRAX line.
Work to extend a high-voltage electrical power line caused congestion and some closures on Saturday in northern Weber County. The work affects traffic on I-15 just south of the Weber-Box Elder County Line from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Only one lane in each direction will be open.
UDOT moved a new bridge into place over I-15 in American Fork Friday night. The massive project shut the freeway down throughout the night at the American Fork Main Street exit.
Lanes reopened around 6:00 a.m. Saturday. The Utah Department of Transportation will shut down the freeway again Sunday night beginning at 10:00 until 6:00 a.m. Monday to move a different bridge into place.
