Salt Lake City?

Planning a trip out West this summer. Plan on staying a couple nights in Brigham City. Then going to Moab from there. Planning on I-15 down to Hwy 6 and was wondering what Salt Lake City traffic would be like on a Tuesday or Wednesday 10 am till 2 pm. With the other sites we're visiting it appears we'd be going thru mid week versus a Sunday. Any help is appreciated.

At I-215 you could leave I-15 for a time and swing a bit west to avoid downtown SLC. Not much more in miles, but you do miss the main part of the city on I-15. I've gone through SLC on both routes, I don't remember too much traffic on either interstate. Listen to local radio to get the latest scoop on traffic.

Download the Google Maps app onto your smartphone. It will route you around any traffic anywhere - not just in SLC.

SLC traffic? Try Boston, NYC, Philly, DC, LA, Atlanta, Bay area - that's REAL traffic!

You've planned on going through SLC during, probably the best mid day travel window. Just get in the second lane from the right and go with traffic and you should not have any problems. We've gone through SLC on I-15 more times than we'd care to count and have used that strategy every time. You will probably encounter some less than courteous drivers, just cope with them and press on.

Brigham City KOA? That's where we stayed! Hope you plan to go north to Promontory Point - where they drove the Golden Spike! Excellent re-creation site! Well worth the trip! ST

UDOT (Utah Department Of Transportation) has a smartphone app that works pretty good for showing traffic, accidents, construction, weather (even location of snow plows) , etc. It takes a bit of practice to figure out the settings to see what you are interested in.
Living here I turn off the notices for road construction. The construction projects usually take so long that once you know where they are they never go away .

Personally in my day to day travels I usually try to avoid the I-15 / I-215 interchange at the South end. Too much merging / exiting of traffic from several directions in a short distance combined with rude drivers often makes it exciting to get into or out of a lane.

Second the recommendation on the UDOT app. I also second the recommendation for just driving right down I-15. There is construction in the area near south 10400 to Lehi, but it is mostly just bumpy. Good time of day.

Thanks for the help. Downloaded the App today and it's nice. Will play more with it as trip gets closer.
