John Daley reporting Summer is winding down. But that doesn't mean we've seen the end of summertime road construction just yet.

You know the orange cones are a fixture of summer, and you can tell summer isn't over yet because the construction season hasn't ended--the orange cones are definitely still here.

All of us want summer to last a little longer. That's no exception for road crews looking to get more done before things start getting chilly.

As a result, UDOT has construction in full gear right now with closures and restricted traffic on both I -15 and I -215.

Brent Wilhite/ UDOT Spokesman: "We have kind of a limited time frame to work with, unlike California or Arizona where they can work construction year round. We have such a heavy winter that we have a seven month window where we can complete construction projects."

Some of the major closures for this week will include I-215 on the east belt in both directions--from 33rd to 47th south. It will be closed tonight and tomorrow night.

Also, starting on Wednesday night, I-15 northbound from 106th South to 72nd South will be closed. That will run nightly until Monday morning.
