SALT LAKE CITY — The 500 South freeway on-ramp in Salt Lake City will close Friday at 9 p.m. through Saturday night for the final phase of a bridge maintenance project that began in March.

Once the ramp reopens, work will shift to the ramp from 500 South to I-15, which will close Saturday night through Sunday night. All lanes on both ramps will reopen by Monday at 6 a.m.

Drivers should plan to use alternate routes such as 1300 South and 600 North to get onto I-15, where they can continue to I-80 if needed, according to a statement from the Utah Department of Transportation.

In addition, two other projects will affect drivers in Salt Lake County beginning Monday.

• In West Valley City, the ramp from eastbound 3500 South to northbound I-215 will close prior to the morning commute. The ramp will remain closed through September for pavement reconstruction. Suggested alternate routes include 4700 South and Redwood Road.

• In South Jordan, work will begin to widen 10600 South from South Jordan Gateway to Redwood Road. For the first few weeks, construction will be concentrated primarily in the median, and drivers should plan for delays and traffic shifts. The project will add one travel lane in each direction, as well as repaving the road and adding turn lanes at two intersections. Construction will be complete in fall 2018.

Construction schedules are weather dependent and subject to change. For the latest information on traffic conditions, visit udottraffic.utah.gov or download the UDOT Traffic app for iPhone or Android.
