During the closure, all eastbound drivers will be detoured onto S.R. 201, then to S.R. 202 and back to eastbound I-80. UDOT recommends motorists plan for heavier-than-normal traffic and delays.

UDOT said the overnight closure will allow crews to repair the pavement with new concrete and provide it ample time to cure, ensuring the repair holds up to the heavy traffic.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. For the latest information on traffic restrictions during construction, visit the UDOT Traffic website at udottraffic.utah.gov or download the UDOT Traffic app for iPhone or Android.
