SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Transportation is seeking public input on plans to provide I-15 express lanes in Weber and Davis counties.

UDOT will hold two public hearings on the express lane extension plans. The first hearing is Nov. 1 at the Hope Center in Roy, 5051 S. 2000 West, and Nov. 8 at Woods Cross City Hall, 1555 S. 800 West. Both meetings will run from 4:30–7 p.m.

The objective of the UDOT study is to obtain an approved environmental document to connect the express lanes on I-15 in central Davis County to those in Salt Lake County, and to construct new express lanes from Layton to Riverdale.

The south segment of the project would stretch from I-215 in North Salt Lake to U.S. 89 in Farmington, while the north segment would run from state Route 232 in Layton to I-84 in Riverdale

UDOT says the ultimate goal is to connect about 80 miles of express lanes from Spanish Fork to Ogden. The agency plans to maintain the existing number of travel lanes on the freeway.
