SALT LAKE CITY -- Big closures went into place Tuesday night on Interstate15. On- and off-ramps are closed, as are lanes of the interstate.

Around 9 p.m., crews began restriping the road -- a job that will take the next three nights. The closures will begin each night at 9:00 and wrap up at 6 a.m.

The project is part of a warranty from a company that helped in the reconstruction of 1-15 right before the Olympics. They test every year to see if the paint is reflective enough; this year they decided it was time for a touch-up.

"We're doing it at night to minimize the delays and the impact to the driving public. People will still have access to I-15 northbound," said Adan Carrillo, spokesman for the Utah Department of Transportation.

So, here's the catch: You will still have access to I-15 northbound, but you won't have all the access you're used to. UDOT has put the following restrictions in place:

  • On I-15, the 600 North on- and off-ramps will be closed.
  • The I-15 northbound ramp to westbound SR 201 will be closed.
  • On the I-15 northbound collector, ramps will close at 2100 South, 1300 South and 900 South.
  • I-80 eastbound from I-15 northbound will be close.
  • I-80 westbound at State Street to I-15 north and southbound will be closed.
  • The 3300 South on-ramp to I-15 northbound will close.
  • Once you're on I-15, there will be northbound lane restrictions from 3300 South to 600 North.
