LEHI — Utah County drivers can expect delays and overnight closures if they are heading north on I-15 from Lehi Main Street to 2100 North in the next few days.
The four-night closure will begin Tuesday night, from 11 p.m. until 4:30 a.m., with the final night on Friday scheduled for 11:59 p.m. until 6 a.m. on Saturday.
Drivers on the road these next few nights will be able to detour off the freeway at Lehi Main Street and get back on I-15 via State Street and 2100 North.
This detour is not expected to make extensive changes to one's commute time, according to Geoff Dupaix, communication manager for the Utah Department of Transportation's Region 3.
The closure will allow crews to finish the final segment of a 10-year-long expansion project for the freeway, which includes bridge construction.
DRIVER ALERT: Northbound I-15 will close for four nights in Lehi starting tomorrow night at 11 p.m. through 4:30 a.m. the following day. On Friday night, the freeway will close at 11:59 p.m., and will reopen Saturday morning at 6 a.m. https://t.co/spmOOCWTq9pic.twitter.com/qCpgQ3TmIx— Utah DOT (@UtahDOT) September 23, 2019
“It’s kind of exciting to see how much has been done over not just the past decade, but over the past 20 years since the original I-15 project in downtown Salt Lake City and the subsequent improvements,” Dupaix said.
When the project is done in late 2020, I-15 in Lehi will have two additional lanes in each direction, redesigned interchanges at state Route 92 and 2100 North, and a new one-way frontage road system.
