BOUNTIFUL — Bridge maintenance on I-15 near 400 North will cause serious delays for drivers in Davis County, officials said.
Starting at 11 p.m. Saturday, all southbound I-15 lanes will close near Bountiful as construction crews add beams to the 400 North bridge, according to the Utah Department of Transportation.
All northbound lanes will close once the construction on the southbound side is complete. Lanes in both directions will remained closed until the bridge construction is complete.
During the construction, southbound traffic will be diverted off I-15 at 500 West (Exit 317) to 500 South, and then back to I-15 southbound at the 500 South interchange.
During the northbound closure, traffic will be diverted off I-15 at 400 North (Exit 317) to 500 West and then northbound back onto I-15.
Lanes are expected to open by 11 a.m. Sunday.
The bridge construction is part of the South Davis Improvements Project. Construction on the bridge aims to improve sidewalks, widen shoulders and provide a better barrier between pedestrians and traffic, according to UDOT.
