SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Department of Transportation will shift lanes on Interstate 15 in Sandy Sunday night in order to keep traffic flowing during construction on the 11400 South interchange.
Work on the new interchange requires space in the center of southbound I-15. To create that extra space, UDOT will split traffic into two lanes on the west side and three lanes on the east side of the work zone.
The split will only affect traffic in the southbound lanes, and will stay in place through late October.
"This configuration allows our crew to continue work while maintaining traffic in this heavily traveled area," said Oanh Le-Spradlin, UDOT project manager.
In order to complete the split, UDOT will close the three outside lanes between 10000 South and 11400 South starting at 8 p.m. Sunday. Two lanes will stay open, including the HOV lane. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
