The I-15 South Davis Improvements Team is pleased to announce that the major project milestones have been completed! The project is in the final finishing stages. 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 update will stand for activities through October. Additional updates will be made as new activities or impacts are scheduled.
The Express Lanes in the I-15 South Davis Improvements corridor are NOW OPEN to all eligible users!
The new zone extends from 600 North in Salt Lake City to Parrish Lane in Ceterville. The Express Lanes are limited to vehicles with 2 or more passengers, Express Pass Holders, buses, motorcycles, emergency vehicles and C decal vehicles. To learn more visit www.udot.utah.gov/expresslanes
The I-15 South Davis Improvements project has completed the following major milestones:
- Added ExpressLanes to I-15 in both directions from the north I-215 interchange to U.S. 89/Park Lane in Farmington.
- Replaced bridges at 2600 South, 1500 South, 500 South, and 400 North.
- Reconfigured 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.
I-15 South Davis Improvements Project Special Update:
Sunday Lane Restrictions on I-15 and 2600 South
-Beginning at 7:00 a.m., Sunday, November 15, the northbound ExpressLane and left general purpose lane of I-15 will be closed near Parrish Lane until approximately 1:00 p.m. Crews will repair a section of I-15 not previously addressed by the project to improve drainage and reduce ponding.
-Also this Sunday, November 15, beginning at 1:00 a.m., 2600 South will be restricted to one lane in each direction east of US-89 while crews perform work to repair damage caused by large rain events earlier this summer. This work is expected to complete by 5:00 p.m.
-Both activities are being completed during the day to ensure adequate temperature for paving. These activities are part of final project quality control measures.
Remaining Items of Work:
- Expect intermittent single lane closures at night in one or both directions in various locations throughout the corridor. Crews will be smoothing transitions, completing clean-up and quality control items through October.
- 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 nearing completion. 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.
- 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. Centerville City is proceeding with securing a contractor to perform this work and the bridge is expected to be open to pedestrian traffic later in the fall.
Construction schedules and dates are subject to change.
