UDOT road construction projects August 12-18, 2011

Ogden– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists of the following road construction and maintenance activities that may cause traffic impacts in the state’s Northern Region:Davis CountyCentervilleAug 12-18: Work continues on the construction of an auxiliary lane on north-bound I-15, between the 500 West on-ramp in Bountiful, and Parrish Lane, work each evening beginning at 10 p.m. until 10 a.m. the next day. Most of the time all lanes will be open, but occasionally the far right lane may be closed to facilitate construction work. Due to additional projects being completed by Davis County, Pages Lane will be closed or restricted where it passes under I-15 in the coming month. Motorists on Pages Lane should use alternate routes, and I-15 motorists should pay attention to advance warning signs and move to the left when directed by them to do so.
