The second of five planned weekend closures of the I-15 reconstruction corridor will begin Friday at 10 p.m.
The southbound side of the freeway will be closed from 1000 North to 7200 South. The northbound lanes will be shut down between 7200 South and 600 North.
Southbound motorists will be detoured onto 900 West. Northbound motorists can use State Street or take the west-side I-215 belt to eastbound I-80 and use the 600 South offramp to access downtown Salt Lake City.
The closure will end at 6 a.m. Monday.
Crews will install overhead signs, paint girders, stripe lanes and prepare to open more traffic lanes.
Beginning Monday, motorists will find additional freeway lanes open south of 2700 South.
Also, Friday at 10 p.m. the southbound onramp at 600 North will close for about five weeks.
