SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Department of Transportation closed a portion of Interstate 80 in Salt Lake City Saturday to make way for crews to replace a bridge.

The eastbound lanes of I-80 were shut down to traffic from State Street to 2300 East while construction crews put the new eastbound 2300 East bridge into place.

The lanes closed at 8 p.m. Saturday and will remain closed until 2 p.m. on Sunday. Meanwhile, traffic will be diverted onto Interstate 215.

Another portion of I-80 closed at 11 p.m. Saturday so crews could install overhead signs. Lanes between Bangerter Highway and I-215 were expected to reopen by Sunday morning.

That lane closure will take place every night until Tuesday.
