The I-15 South Davis Improvements Team is pleased to announce that the major project milestones have been completed! Several months of finish work remain, but the barrels have been removed from the entire project corridor. Remaining work will occur in localized areas with daytime shoulder closures, or nighttime lane closures
Over the next two months crews will commission the Express Pass payment system, make minor repairs, complete landscaping at the interchanges, place erosion control seed along the shoulders of I-15, paint the 400 North bridge, complete inspections and ensure that all work meets UDOT’s standards. The project is expected to be fully complete in October.
*Since major project features are now open, the following project email update will stand for activities through September. Additional emails will be sent as new activities or impacts are scheduled.
The I-15 South Davis Improvements project will:
- Add ExpressLanes to I-15 in both directions from the north I-215 interchange to U.S. 89/Park Lane in Farmington.
- Replace 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 a new pedestrian bridge at Parrish Lane.
Remaining Items of Work:
- The new Express Lanes are now open to high-occupancy and clean duel decal vehicles, connecting the previously existing segments in North Salt Lake and Farmington, making Utah’s Express Lanes system the longest continuous system in the US at over 80 miles. The electronic tolling system will be calibrated and the lanes are expected to open to Express Pass holders in late September.

- Nightly through September 30, I-15 will be reduced to two lanes in both directions in various locations throughout the corridor. Crews will be smoothing transitions.
- I-15 lane closures will begin at 9:00 p.m. with I-15 reduced to two lanes by midnight.
Side Street Closures:
- Expect intermittent lane closures at night on 2600 South, 500 South, and Parrish Lane through September. Side streets will be restricted to one lane in each direction for bridge inspection and close-out items as needed.
400 North/500 West: Construction to add dedicated right turn lanes to the south side of the 400 North and 500 West intersection is now underway. Work will occur on all corners of the intersection. One corner will be constructed at a time to reduce impacts to traffic. Expect daytime shoulder closures and nighttime lane closures in the area through October.
Parrish Lane: The Parrish Lane pedestrian bridge will be completed in a few weeks, but will not open to pedestrians until a connecting sidewalk is constructed on the northeast side of the interchange. Due to budget constraints, UDOT determined that it was better to build the bridge as a “value added” item and then to find funding for the sidewalk at a later date. UDOT and Centerville City are currently working together to secure funding. The bridge is expected to be open to pedestrian traffic later this summer or in the fall.
Construction schedules and dates are subject to change.
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 time. Use Legacy Parkway or Frontrunner to avoid delay. Frontrunner provides all-day service with 30-min. frequency during peak hours.
Stay alert and be prepared for changing lane configurations 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.
