Click here to view the map of the detour. Traffic will be detoured at this exit, but all other ramps in the area will remain open. Motorists traveling southbound on I-15 to Grandview Drive will be detoured to the Broadway Avenue exit, west on Broadway Drive to Skyline Drive and then north on Skyline Drive to Grandview Drive. As part of the Grandview reconstruction project from Skyline Drive to Saturn Avenue, this phase of the project includes the installation of a storm drain infiltration system. The reconstruction and widening of Grandview Drive from Skyline Drive to Saturn Avenue began August 1. This federally-funded project will provide roadway improvements including the reconstruction of the roadway, widening of Grandview Drive to five lanes, a 12ft wide shared use pathway on the south side of the roadway, and a sidewalk on the north side of the roadway between Skyline Drive and Saturn Avenue. Motorists should watch for equipment and workers, follow all traffic signs and flaggers, and reduce speeds to posted limits. For questions, call Public Works at (208) 612-8250.
