SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – August 21, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) — The Utah Department of Transportation warns drivers to remember the southbound lane split on I-15 will be extended to Bangerter Highway tonight.

Lane splits will be in place for both northbound and southbound I-15.

Southbound I-15 Lane Split Extension
  • Starting Saturday, Aug. 22, drivers planning to exit at 14600 South or S.R. 92 need to stay in the right two lanes at the split. All four lanes continue south. See how it works here.
  • With this alignment, the lanes over the bridge are marked with solid white lanes, rather than dashed lines. For your safety, please remain in your lane; it is illegal to cross solid white traffic lines in this area.

Northbound I-15 Lane Split Reduction

  • On Saturday night, Aug. 22, crews will shift northbound I-15 out of the lane split between S.R. 92 and 14600 South. The two left lanes will be shifted onto new concrete pavement for the first time.
  • The northbound lane split from 14600 South to Bangerter Highway will remain in place. Drivers should stay right to exit at Bangerter Highway.

14600 South Interchange

  • Crews plan to place the bridge girders (support beams) for the new southbound bridge over 14600 South on the nights of Aug. 23, 24 and 25. 14600 South under the freeway will be closed overnight from 10 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., but I-15 and the ramps will remain open. See the alternative route map.
  • As part of the work necessary to shift southbound traffic into a lane split from Bangerter Highway to 14600 South, the southbound off-ramp to 14600 South will be closed Saturday morning, Aug. 22, from 2 to 6 a.m. Drivers can use Bangerter Highway as an alternate route.
