Due to additional projects being completed by Davis County, Pages Lane will be closed or restricted where it passes under I-15 until the end of September. 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.
