UDOT making big changes on I-15 in Davis, Weber Counties

Apr 3, 2020, 12:45 PM
Drivers moving between 650 North in Clearfield to 5600 South in Roy will see changes on I-15, with one left lane moved over to the southbound side.

NORTHERN UTAH – Anyone driving through Davis County will see new layout changes on I-15 starting Saturday.

UDOT is shifting a southbound lane of I-15 just after the 650 North exit in Clearfield to the northbound side of the freeway.  The crossover ends just after the exit ramp to 700 South in Clearfield.

The right lane will remain where it normally is for those who need to exit I-15.

SOUTHBOUND DRIVERS AREN’T THE ONLY ONES AFFECTED

Then next week, UDOT spokesman Zach Whitney said an even longer section of I-15 will crossover on the northbound side of the freeway. This will most likely happen Wednesday.

Drivers moving between 650 North in Clearfield to 5600 South in Roy will see one left lane moved over to the southbound side.

All of this is to extend the express lanes on both sides of the freeway.  Currently, the HOV lanes end and begin — depending on the direction of travel — in Layton.

Whitney said this project was planned far in advance.  It was not moved up because fewer people are now on the roads.  He said there are so many parts involved, it’s unlikely it will be completed sooner just because there’s a lack of traffic.

And because there are so few people on the roads, Whitney said some drivers could go into auto-pilot.  It’s important, he said, to stay alert — especially in road construction zones. This will improve everyone’s safety.

HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST?

The ‘crossovers,’ which begin this week, are expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

But after that, the second phase of the project begins.  So, drivers will still have strange lane configurations because of I-15 changes to deal with until fall of 2021, according to Whitney.
