The Express Lanes between SR 56 and SR 163 will be closed for 9 straight days (Sat, June 18 – Sun, June 26). All traffic will be forced to use the I-15 main lanes. The major impact for commuters will be felt during the work week of June 20-24. Motorists should expect heavy congestion on I-15 - southbound in the morning and northbound in the afternoon. We advise commuters to adjust their schedules to leave earlier or later for work, talk with their employers about alternative work options during this week, or expect delays.
The good news is that when the Express Lanes reopen on Monday, June 27, there will be four Express Lanes (2 NB, 2 SB) between SR56 and SR163 - double the current amount. This 9-day closure allows crews to complete work that cannot be done when there is live traffic in the lanes.
