UDOT reduces lane-travel on I-15 by Dixie Drive Interchange, road construction

ST. GEORGE – The Utah Department of Transportation will reduce the number of available travel lanes on Interstate 15 northbound at Exit 5, the Dixie Drive Interchange, Monday and Tuesday to conduct road repairs.

Road crews will be grinding out a bump in the northbound lanes, tapering the road surface and then applying a high density material to smooth out the ride.

Work is anticipated to begin on the main travel lanes at 8:45 a.m. Monday and continue until approximately 4 p.m.  Through-traffic will be shifted temporarily to the exit lane to bypass the construction.  Speed will be reduced to 55 miles per hour through the work zone.

Tuesday, workers will return to work on the right lanes.

Motorists are advised to use caution, follow the temporary signs and barrels and to prepare for minor delays.
