ST. GEORGE — Motorists may expect delays Monday morning as the Utah Department of Transportation will close traffic to a single-lane on Interstate 15 between Exits 4 and 5, Bloomington and Dixie Drive, to perform a structure inspection on the Virgin River Bridge.

Right-lane closures will be in effect from 8-10 a.m. for southbound traffic and from 10 a.m. to noon for northbound traffic, UDOT Roadway Operations Manager Todd Abbott said.

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

UDOT crews will be performing the same operation on the LaVerkin Bridge Tuesday, Abbott said, resulting in possible traffic delays on state Route 9 in the area passing over the Virgin River.

      You might be surprised how many people stash contraband of stolen items, alcohol and drugs under bridges. They are a popular hiding spot for teenagers living at home who don’t want to risk mom or dad finding contraband in their cars or rooms or cops finding alcohol on them after a night of partying in the desert.
