The Utah Department of Transportation is recommending drivers plan ahead for traffic delays along the Wasatch Front this Friday and Monday due to holiday traffic for the Labor Day weekend



Provo, UT – According to the statement, officials expect delays on Friday of up to 20 minutes on northbound Interstate 15 through Davis County from 1-8 p.m., and up to 10 minutes on southbound I-15 through Salt Lake County from 2-8 p.m.

On Monday, delays for return trips could reach 10 minutes on southbound I-15 in Davis County from 3-7 p.m., northbound I-15 near Nephi from 3-7 p.m., westbound U.S. Highway 6 in Spanish Fork Canyon from 1-8 p.m., and westbound Interstate 80 from the U.S. Highway 40 junction to the mouth of Parleys Canyon from 1-8 p.m.

Across the state, most UDOT projects will suspend construction and open all lanes to traffic to help reduce delays during Labor Day weekend, Friday through Monday.

In some work zones, these restrictions will continue through the weekend where needed to ensure safety or accommodate ongoing construction.
