Three lanes of I-15 in Davis County closed for repairs after highway buckles
CENTERVILLE, Utah — The extended hot weather in Utah is taking a toll on highways and roads around the state. Drivers in Davis County experienced that firsthand on Thursday afternoon as three lanes of northbound I-15 started to buckle. As a result, those lanes were closed for repairs for roughly four hours Thursday, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
