SALT LAKE CITY — If your Halloween plans this weekend take you along I-80 in Sugarhouse put a reminder in your phone about an overnight I-80 closure on Friday and Saturday.

I-80 will be closed in both directions Friday from 9 p.m. through 9 a.m. Saturday. The closure will repeat at the same time Saturday — closing at 9 p.m. and opening again at 9 a.m. on Sunday. 

The closures begin at 700 East and end at Foothill Drive.

UDOT’s I-80/I-215 Renewed Project Manager Becky Stromness says crews are moving 11 massive beams into place to build a bridge at 1300 East.

“I-80 is obviously a very important route, (for the economy), drivers, communities for everyone,” she said. “Luckily we have a pretty good detour to just use I-15 and 215 the East Belt to avoid these closures.”

The bigger project includes repaving stretches of I-80 and I-215 and replacing four bridges that run over I-80 in Sugarhouse.

Eastbound I-80 is also getting an additional lane.

“We expect to have traffic on brand new pavement, with lanes open by the end of 2023,” Stromness said.
