Motorists are now traveling on both sides of I-15. No traffic control will be in place this winter. Crews will return in the spring to begin work on the northbound lanes of I-15.
Construction began this past spring to rehabilitate about 7 miles of I-15 through Wolf Creek in a project that in early 2023 was estimated at nearly $40 million.
Work completed in 2023 included removing about 2 feet of degraded roadway material and placing new fabric, crushed gravel base and a new asphalt driving surface on the southbound lanes of I-15.
Crews also upgraded the concrete barrier rails, metal guardrails and signage on the southbound lanes. Roadside delineators (roadside markers) were added
