PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona transportation officials are warning motorists traveling on Interstate 15 in the northwest corner of Arizona over the Labor Day weekend to expect traffic delays and to allow extra travel time.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says delays of up to two hours have been reported on the section of I-15 in the Virgin River Gorge on previous holiday travel weekends.

The gorge is located in the corner of Arizona between Nevada and Utah.

The department says construction crews won't be working in the area during the holiday weekend but says I-15 narrows to one lane in each direction at a bridge construction project about 20 miles south of St. George, Utah.

The project includes the replacement of the bridge's superstructure and widening the highway through the gorge.
