The Arizona Department of Transportation will lift some of the traffic restrictions on Interstate 15 through the Virgin River Gorge prior to the Independence Day holiday weekend, but is advising motorists to expect heavy traffic through the weekend.
Considerable progress has been made to date on ADOT’s multiple bridge projects along Arizona’s I-15 corridor. The highway is currently narrowed to one lane in each direction through the gorge until the project is completed in 2016.
ADOT spokesman Dustin Krugal:
“With limited alternate routes available through the remote location of the Interstate 15 Virgin River Gorge Corridor, Arizona Department of Transportation is urging drivers traveling between Mesquite, (Nev.) and St. George to prime ahead for possible delays.”
