UTAH COUNTY -- Drivers in Utah County should plan for major delays between Lehi and Spanish Fork Thursday morning as crews make emergency pothole repairs on Interstate 15.

The potholes, found along the I-15 Core Project, were caused by winter weather and deteriorating asphalt. After several attempts to repair them, the Utah Department of Transportation engineers determined an immediate resurfacing was necessary.

Beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday and lasting through about 5:30 a.m. Friday, drivers can expect lane restrictions and significant delays.

UDOT advises drivers to do the following:

  • Avoid I-15 as much as possible. UDOT will work with cities to time signals and keep traffic moving on local streets.
  • Consider exiting the freeway at Pleasant Grove Blvd. and 1600 North in Orem and taking local roads instead of continuing on I-15.
  • Adjust travel times or plan ahead for significant delays.
