UDOT BEGINS I-15 PROJECT

The Utah Department of Transportation this week started a major rehabilitation proj-ect on I-15 between Lagoon and Layton.

It will require reducing traffic to two lanes in each direction and, at times, traffic may have to use shoulder areas, according to Mike Roshek, deputy construction engineer for UDOT.The project involves crack sealing and small repairs that will extend the life of the pavement and provide a smoother ride for motorists.

More than 44,000 feet of concrete barriers will be used over the nine-mile project to physically separate traffic and the work zone.

The $2.6 million project is being done by J.D. McNeil. Crews will work around the clock to speed up completion and reduce inconvenience to motorists, UDOT officials say.

Work is expected to be done by late May.

UDOT is urging motorists to watch for periodic changes in traffic lane delineation.
