The Utah Department of Transportation said the two left lanes are being blocked. The backup begins from just before the state Route 9 junction and stretches at least a mile beyond Washington Parkway to around mile marker 10 and the Green Springs exit.

As of 2:30 p.m., authorities said the lanes have been reopened. However, the backup extends beyond mile marker 11 to the portion of the I-15 near the Red Cliffs Mall.
