NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) The final bridge replacement for the Interstate 15 Express-Link project is near completion.

The U.S. 89 bridge over I-15 from North Salt Lake was closed to switch traffic onto a new bridge. The Beck Street on ramp to I-15 also was closed. The U.S. 89 bridge will be reduced to one lane until January as crews finish final construction work.

As part of the project, the Utah Department of Transportation also replaced bridges at Beck Street, 1000 North and 800 North.

The $125 million Express-Link project spans more than 4 mi. and is scheduled for completion by next summer.
