UDOT Region One Road Construction Report for August 26-September 1, 2011

Ogden– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists of the following road construction and maintenance activities that may cause traffic impacts in the state’s Northern Region: Davis County Centerville Aug 26-Sept 1: Work continues on the construction of an auxiliary lane on north-bound I-15, between the 500 West on-ramp in Bountiful, and Parrish Lane, work each evening beginning at 10 p.m. until 10 a.m. the next day. Most of the time all lanes will be open, but occasionally the far right lane may be closed to facilitate construction work. Due to additional projects being completed by Davis County, Pages Lane will be closed or restricted where it passes under I-15 until the end of September. Motorists on Pages Lane should use alternate routes, and I-15 motorists should pay attention to advance warning signs and move to the left when directed by them to do so. For more information about this project, contact the project team at 801-448-2930, e-mail I-15parrishlane@vox-creative.com, or visit the project website at http://udot.utah.gov/main/f?p=100:pg:0:::1:T,V:3424. Bountiful Aug 26-Sept 1: Restorative work on the concrete underpass on SR-68 underneath the Bamberger Bridge at 500 W 200 South in Bountiful is underway. This work will require a closure of one lane and will take place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily. The work is scheduled to be completed finished by October. Layton to Sunset Aug 28-Sept 1: The Region One Painting Crew will be painting crosswalks at various locations on SR-126 between Layton and Sunset, from Sunday, August 28, through Thursday, September 1. Work sites will occur interittently along this route, with crews blocking lanes while one section of pavement markings are placed. After that work is complete, the crew will move down the road to another location, and then return to the previous location to finish work in the other lane at that location. Traffic cones or barrels will be in place to protect areas of wet paint, so motorists should slow down and move to open lanes as soon as possible. Weber County Ogden Aug 29-31: From Monday, August 29, through Wednesday, August 31, maintenance crews will be conducting ditch and cut-bank work on SR-39 in Ogden Canyon, from milepost 9 at the mouth of the canyon on the west end, to milepost 14, just east of Pineview Dam. Crews will work from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily. Lanes are expected to be restricted or closed, and flaggers will be on hand to direct traffic around the work underway. This project is expected to be completed on Wednesday, August 31. Motorists should expect moderate to heavy traffic congestion, and those travelers to and from the Ogden Valley with time-sensitive travel, should consider using alternate routes, such as SR-167, the Trappers Loop Highway, via I-84 through Weber Canyon. Aug 31: Crews will close the south-bound inside (left) lane of Wall Avenue (SR-204) at 32nd Street on Wednesday, August 31, to allow crews to conduct work to repair an underground infrastructure issue. Work will take place between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and flaggers will be on hand to direct traffic. Since there is the potential for moderate traffic congestion during certain time periods throughout the day, motorists with time-sensitive travel are encouraged to use Washington Boulevard (US-89) as an alternate route. Aug 26-Sept 1: Paving is complete on the 12th Street Re-paving Project between Washington (US-89) and Harrison (SR-204) Boulevard’s . However, traffic continues to be limited to one lane in each direction while crews finish surface grinding and prepare the roadway for final stripping application. The Washington to Monroe Avenue section of 12th street is expected to open to traffic on August 31. Meanwhile, the Monroe Avenue to Harrison Boulevard section remains closed while the concrete cures. For project information, call 800-676-12TH (800-676-1284) or email info@frontlinepi.com Roy to South Willard Aug 28-Sept 1: The Region One Painting Crew will be painting crosswalks at various locations on SR-126 between Roy and South Willard, from Sunday, August 28, through Thursday, September 1. Work sites will occur interittently along this route, with crews blocking lanes while one section of pavement markings are placed. After that work is complete, the crew will move down the road to another location, and then return to the previous location to finish work in the other lane at that location. Traffic cones or barrels will be in place to protect areas of wet paint, so motorists should slow down and move to open lanes as soon as possible. Box Elder County Brigham City Aug 26-Sept 1: Lane restrictions are in place on both northbound and southbound I-15 between milepost 351 (Smith & Edwards) and the Brigham City 1100 South exit for concrete rehabilitation work. Crews are now working on dowel bar and concrete panel placement and smoothness grinding. At night between 7 p.m. and 9 a.m., I-15 is reduced to one lane in each direction in areas where work is occurring. Motorists should expect lane restrictions on freeway on- and off-ramps at the I-15/750 North Interchange (Exit 357). Larger vehicles, and vehicles hauling trailers or boats are especially advised to reduce speeds and use caution in the area. The use of Highway 89 or other alternate route is recommended at night.

Honeyville Aug 26-Sept 1: Cable median barrier is being installed on I-15 between Calls Fort (milepost 365) and the Honeyville Interchange (Exit 372 to SR-240) in Honeyville. Lanes should rarely be restricted or closed, but motorists should be wary of vehicles suddenly pulling off or on to the roadway, and of workers and machinery working adjacent to open lanes of travel.

Cache County Logan Canyon Aug 26-Sept 1: Workers are replacing guard rails and cattle guards on US-89 in Logan Canyon, between the Dugway and Beaver Mountain.
