LEHI — The Utah Department of Transportation is scheduled to close state Route 92, the Timpanogos Highway, at I-15 at 11 p.m. Saturday through 5:30 a.m. Monday to convert the diverging diamond interchange to a traditional interchange.

I-15 will remain open in both directions along with all on- and off-ramps. Southbound drivers trying to get to American Fork Canyon or Traverse Mountain Outlets will need to use 2100 North. Northbound drivers heading west to Thanksgiving Point can use 2100 North or 14600 South. Local traffic can use Triumph Boulevard and 2100 North for east/west travel.

In addition to converting the interchange, crews will implement new features that will provide additional access to and from I-15, including a new off-ramp from southbound I-15 to the frontage road, allowing direct access to Thanksgiving Point and the businesses south, and a free-flowing U-turn lane on the Triumph Boulevard bridge to help drivers get from the southbound to northbound frontage road.

“These features are the first of several new elements designed to give drivers more options when traveling through the I-15 Technology Corridor,” UDOT project director Boyd Humpherys said.

UDOT developed an animated rendering depicting how these features and other planned improvements will work together to create an improved freeway system. To view the animation, visit youtu.be/vvVzqQi0g_M.
