The I-15 rehabilitation project between Lehi and the Point of the Mountain is still on schedule for fall completion and traffic in the detour lanes is moving without delay, said Marv Christiansen, project engineer for the Utah Department of Transportation.
Thirty employees are working double shifts to get the job done on schedule and work on the northbound lanes should be finished in late June or early July, he said.
Crews have been removing old asphalt material from the shoulders and ramps and replacing it with concrete. They have also been filling potholes, replacing worn slabs of concrete on the road surface and repairing the joints on the bridge that crosses over U-92.
Although traffic has not decreased, the detour route has had very little interference because of the construction and very few accidents, Christiansen said.
When work on the northbound lanes is complete, traffic will be shifted over so that work can begin on the southbound lanes. The entire project should be completed by Oct. 22.
