SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – The Utah Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan for travel delays on I-80 westbound this weekend.
Drivers can expect delays on I-80 westbound between 2300 East and 1300 East in Salt Lake City. Crews will be repairing potholes in the pavement caused by winter weather conditions.
UDOT says I-80 westbound will be reduced to one lane beginning Saturday at 7 p.m. until Sunday at 10 p.m., weather permitting.
UDOT says drivers should plan alternate routes such as I-215 to I-15 to avoid delays.
Similar lane closures are to be expected on Jan. 23 on I-80 westbound for continuing pavement repairs in the same area.
In a statement, UDOT says, “Crews will continue to monitor the pavement condition on I-80 in the work zone and complete repairs as weather and materials allow.”
