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 Bountiful Oct 14-20: Restorative work on the concrete underpass on 500 West (US-89) underneath the Bamberger Bridge (SR-68) at 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 by October. Weber County Ogden Oct 14-20: Work is underway on the first phase of a project to re-pave Washington Boulevard (US-89) from 26th to 36th Street. Utility relocations and replacements are presently underway, along with curb and gutter work, with crews working from 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. each night. Only one lane will remain open in each direction while crews are working at night, with two lanes open during daytime work (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.), so motorists should move into open lanes as they approach this project zone. Local residents and businesses should expect some minor construction-related noise and/or vibrations during completion of this project.
