ADOT advises drivers traveling through Virgin River Gorge to allow extra travel time

Motorists traveling northbound near Mesquite on I-15 should be prepared for delays of up to two hours this weekend due to heavier than usual holiday traffic volume as well as bridge repair work along Interstate 15, just north of Mesquite (milepost 9).


Construction is underway 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, in the northbound lanes.

One travel lane will remain open in the work zone now through mid- May.

With limited alternate routes through the corridor, drivers should plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
