UDOT presents plan for adding 21 miles of express lane to I-15
ROY — If another lane is built on Interstate 15 through Weber and Davis counties, the biggest impact will be noise.
On Thursday night in Roy, the Utah Department of Transportation held the first of two public hearings on its plan to extend the state’s express lane system throughout the Top of Utah.
A second hearing is set from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at Woods Cross City Hall, 1555 S. 800 West.
UDOT is conducting an environmental study on a project that will add express lanes from Interstate 215 in North Salt Lake to U.S. 89 in Farmington, and from Hill Field Road in Layton to the junction with Interstate 84 in Riverdale.
The new lanes would total 21 miles on both the north and south sides of the freeway and would make more room on I-15, particularly for carpoolers.
