Work to begin on Honeyville I-15 bridges

Ogden– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists that work will begin July 8 on a project to rehabilitate the roadway decking of the Interstate 15 bridges over the Bear River, near Honeyville.

Beginning Monday July 8, and running through mid-October, the I-15 bridge structures over the Bear River (milepost 374.01) will be rehabilitated. Construction will place in two phases, with approximately three months of construction needed to complete this project, including the removal and cast-in-place replacement of the bridge’s roadway decks.

Traffic will be limited to one lane each direction 24 hours per day, and speed limits will be reduced.

Work on the south-bound bridge structure will occur first, from July 8 through August 29. During this first phase the south-bound bridge will be closed and two-way I-15 traffic will be carried by the northbound bridge.

The second phase of the bridge rehabilitation project will run from approximately September 3, through October 15. During this work, the northbound bridge structure will be closed for rehabilitation, and two-way I-15 traffic will be carried on to the south-bound bridge. While most traffic will be generally unaffected by this project oversized trucks and loads will bypass the bridges and routed onto SR-13 to the west of the I-15, using Exit 365 at Corinne on the south, and Exit 376 at Elwood on the north.

To contact the project team regarding specific project issues, email, or phone (801) 694-4279. Oversized loads should contact the Perry Port of Entry, at 435-734-9414, or the Motor Carriers Division Superloads Group, at 801-964-4588, for additional oversized routing instructions.
