UPDATE: Southbound I-15 lanes reopen following rollover just south of state line

ST. GEORGE A crash on Interstate 15 just south of the Arizona-Utah state line closed the southbound lanes around milepost 27 Monday night, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. The lanes have since reopened

The crash occurred around 3:36 p.m. MST.

Mesquite Police out of Nevada reported over Twitter that the lanes were closed to accommodate the landing of a medical helicopter at the scene of the single-vehicle rollover.

Once the helicopter left, the lanes were eventually reopened. However, southbound motorists are advised to anticipate delays due to traffic back-up.

    “Once the helicopter leaves, one of the southbound lane is anticipated to opened up, according to Mesquite Police.”

    Once the helicopter leaves, one of the southbound lanes is anticipated to open, according to Mesquite Police.
    or
    Once the helicopter leaves, one of the southbound lanes is anticipated to be opened according to Mesquite Police.

    (There are multiple lanes and up is a preposition and should not be used in this manner)

      “Open Up”: Transitive verb meaning to make available or possible. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/open%20up

      Thus, the sentence should be read as follows: “Once the helicopter leaves, one of the southbound lane is anticipated to made available, according to Mesquite Police.”

      Looks to me like it was used properly

        “…to be made available”. Now it is used properly.
