Although UDOT says construction projects are being put on hold to allow greater traffic flow, some lane restrictions remain in place.

Other areas in which delays can be expected are:
I-15 Riverdale to Layton – There are three lanes open in each direction between Layton and Riverdale with the speed limit reduced to 60 mph in the work area. Construction work on widening the lane in both directions is expected to be completed in 2022.

SR 39 in Ogden Canyon – Reduced to one lane of changing traffic controlled by a temporary signal near the Mid Canyon Bridge between Ogden and Pineview Reservoir. When traveling to Pineview Reservoir, Huntsville, Eden, or any other area of ​​the Ogden Valley, expect delays of up to 15 minutes or more. Alternative routes are recommended. The new construction of a bridge in the middle of the canyon is the cause of the road delay.

I-80 in Salt Lake City and I-215 in eastern Salt Lake County – Due to a highway reconstruction project, the lanes have shifted and narrowed between 1300 East and 2300 East and on the East Belt of I-215. A new lane from 3800 South to 4500 South will be added on the I-215 going south from November 23rd. This configuration will persist until 2022.

US 189 in Provo Canyon – Traffic will be reduced to one lane between Bridal Falls and Vivian Park. New concrete middle barriers will be installed and the closure will last until mid-December.
