“We are placing a pavement preservation treatment on I-15 just after the Exit 5 off-ramp,” UDOT Roadway Operations Manager Todd Abbott said.

Northbound traffic is closed to a single-lane of travel until 3 p.m. Thursday between the Exit 5 off-ramp and the Exit 5 overpass, Abbott said.

UDOT crews will begin repainting the highway striping on Friday at 5:30 a.m.

Motorists traveling through the area should plan ahead, allow for possible delays and drive with extra precaution through the work area.
