Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio You might as well count on construction as part of your Memorial Day weekend plans, especially if you're traveling to southern Utah.

UDOT has dozens of projects, and spokesman Nile Easton says it plans to pull off most of them for the holiday weekend. But there's at least one big hitch: I-15 near the Juab County-Millard County line, one lane in each direction, for six miles. "There really isn't an alternate route, and because the freeway is literally torn up in that section we cannot run traffic over those lanes."

Easton doesn't expect major problems southbound. But Sunday and Monday nights, he says there could be at least an hour of delay for people returning north. There also will be some restrictions on I-80 near the Wyoming border and I-70 east of Cove Fort.
