Davis County residents should be aware that traffic will be affected during the shift, scheduled to begin Jan. 17. Southbound I-15 will be reduced to one lane from approximately 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Jan. 17, while crews prepare to shift traffic onto the newly-constructed side of the freeway. Southbound I-15 will reopen to three lanes. Motorists are asked to be prepared for lane shifts and a new traffic configuration. As part of the switch, the southbound off-ramp from I-15 to 600 North and the southbound on-ramp from U.S. 89 to I-15 will temporarily close on Jan. 17 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The southbound 2300 North on- and off-ramps and the southbound 1000 North on-ramp should reopen at approximately 5 p.m. and should remain open for the duration of the project.
A similar operation is expected on Sunday, Jan. 24 on northbound I-15.
The northbound portion of the freeway will be closed on Jan. 24, so crews can shift traffic onto the newly-constructed side of I-15. Motorists should be prepared for lane shifts and a new traffic configuration throughout the corridor.
Following completion of the switch, both directions of I-15 will be on the newly-constructed side in a 3 x 2 configuration. Lanes will be shifted on weekdays to maintain three lanes in the peak direction. The northbound on-ramp from 600 North to I-15 will temporarily close on Jan. 24 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The northbound 2300 North on-and off- ramps and the northbound off-ramp from I-15 to U.S. 89 will also be closed throughout this phase. Additional shorter-term ramp closers can be expected later in this phase.
The project is expected to be completed in Fall 2010.
Those traveling on Warm Springs Road will find the road closed each night from 7 p.m.-5 a.m. from Jan. 25-27. The closure is necessary while the old Beck Street Bridge is demolished.
During this time, there will be no access between Warm Springs Road and 2300 North. Northbound traffic should use 600 North to Redwood Road as an alternate route. Southbound traffic will be able to access 2300 North via the now open southbound off-ramp.
All project dates and times are subject to change due to weather, supply or equipment issues.
