The I-15 South Davis Improvements project will:
Add ExpressLanes in both directions from the north I-215 interchange to U.S. 89 in Farmington.
Replace aging bridges at 2600 South, 1500 South, 500 South, and 400 North.
Reconfigure the interchanges at 2600 South and 500 South in Bountiful to improve east/west mobility
Improve active transportation with better pedestrian facilities at 500 South, 400 North and Parrish Lane.
I-15 construction is expected to be complete in spring 2015 with interchange and bridge construction continuing through summer 2015.
Upcoming Construction Activities
Construction is expected to begin April 7th with intermittent nighttime lane restrictions on I-15 from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.
As early as 10:00 p.m. April 11th, crews will begin restriping I-15 between North Salt Lake and Farmington, shifting traffic to a new traffic configuration where motorists will move to the inside of the freeway in order to begin widening on the outside. Travel lanes will be narrowed to 11′ and lanes will follow new patterns as shown in the graphic below.
Plan Ahead To Reduce Delays And Impacts
I-15 will remain open without restrictions during peak hours. However, travel delays up to 30 minutes are expected during peak travel times. Use Legacy Parkway or Frontrunner to avoid delay.
FrontRunner provides all-day service with 30-min. frequency during peak hours. To make using FrontRunner even better, we’ve partnered with UTA to provide Davis County residents with a free 7-day FrontRunner pass. Register for your free pass at rideuta.com/i15davis. Supplies are limited.
Stay alert and be prepared for reduced speeds in the project area for your safety and the safety of those working here. Please obey the posted speed and be aware for changing roadway conditions throughout the project area.
