Besides work being done on 10th West, UDOT plans Main Street projects

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) plans to begin work on July 26 to implement several roadway and safety improvements on Main Street (US-89 and 91), between SR-165 (the “Y” intersection on the south end of Logan) and 1000 North in Logan. Planned improvements include an asphalt-based “microseal,” formulated to extend the life of the pavement and protect it from weather, as well as the installation of new Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant pedestrian access ramps at intersections, and roadway re-striping in the project area. Project completion is expected by mid-August 2011. The project involves both day and nighttime work and will be completed in segments to minimize traffic impacts. Pedestrian access improvements at the selected intersections will be completed daily between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. During these daylight work periods, right-turn movements will be restricted at the intersections where work is taking place, but all through traffic lanes will be maintained. Sidewalk restrictions are possible where crews are working on the pedestrian access ramps. Microsealing along Main Street is expected to begin by early August and will be completed at night. Crews will work between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., with traffic restricted to one lane in each direction. During the completion of this work, parking will not be permitted on Main Street overnight. Right-turn movements and cross-street access will also be restricted in segments under construction. Motorists with time-sensitive travel should plan ahead, and consider the use of alternate routes. More information about this project is available by contacting the project public involvement team by phone at 435-760-7356, e-mail loganmain@utah.gov, or go online at www.udot.utah.gov/go/loganmain.
