LAYTON -- UDOT took a giant step forward on the South Layton Interchange Project overnight. Crews moved a 2.5-million-pound bridge into place over Interstate 15.
The operation closed a portion of the freeway for about five hours. With this bridge out of the way, UDOT has just one more bridge left to build for the project.
Meanwhile, construction on the south end of the valley will narrow I-15 for nearly a week. Sunday night, crews shut down three lanes of the freeway in both directions at 11400 South to remove barriers and work on lighting.
The lane closures will continue every night at 10:00 through Thursday. The lanes will open every morning at 6:00.
