SALT LAKE CITY — Eastbound I-80 will be reduced to one lane between Bangerter Highway and I-215 from Friday at 8 p.m. to Sunday at 8 p.m.

In addition, the on-ramp from the airport exit (southbound Terminal Drive) to eastbound I-80 will be closed, as well as the on-ramp from northbound Bangerter Highway to eastbound I-80.

Drivers leaving the airport will need to use alternate routes, such as southbound Bangerter Highway to eastbound state Route 201. Those using eastbound I-80 should plan for heavier than normal traffic congestion and moderate delays.

The closures will allow Utah Department of Transportation crews to perform maintenance work on the eastbound I-80 bridge over the Jordan River Surplus Canal. The work is being done during nighttime hours and on the weekend to reduce delays.

UDOT is also advising drivers of other restrictions scheduled during the upcoming week:

• Up to two lanes of I-15 from Antelope Drive to Hill Field Road in Layton will be closed in each direction each night beginning as early as Friday. All lanes are scheduled to reopen each morning in time for the commute. The closures will continue through June 22 while crews finish construction the new bridge over I-15.
