US 89/91 repaving project to begin May 20

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists that it will begin repaving US 89/91 from Brigham City to Sardine Summit, on Sunday, May 20.


This project will involve the removal of the top layer of the roadway, and its replacement with a new asphalt surface.  Crews will begin work will near the east end of state Road 90 (200 South) in Brigham City and continue past Mantua to Sardine Summit.  Construction will take place during both day and nighttime hours from Saturday at 7 p.m. through Friday at 12 p.m.  Crews will work in a “racetrack” fashion, with one lane of travel remaining open in each direction during construction activities.  Recreational and area travelers can expect moderate to heavy traffic congestion during this project.


Roadway and safety improvements on US-89/91 will include asphalt removal and replacement, new lane markings, rumble strips and roadside delineators.  Additionally, to facilitate the paving work, several ramps to and from US-89/91 will be closed for 24-hour periods.  They include the Brigham City west-bound off-ramp to SR-90 (200 South) on May 20; the east-bound on-ramp from SR-90 in Brigham City to US-89/91 on May 21; and the  on- and off-ramps at Mantua on May 22-23.  This project is scheduled to be completed by early September.


With congestion through the construction zone expected, motorists with time-sensitive travel and truck traffic is encouraged to consider using SR-30 via I-15 at Riverside, as an alternate to US-89/91 over Sardine Summit.  Closed lanes will be preceded by electronic signs indicating the closure ahead and directing traffic to move into the open lanes.  Flaggers will be present throughout the construction zone, so motorists should reduce speeds and be prepared to stop at any time, particularly when nearing the construction vehicle turn-around at Sardine Summit.


For more information about this project, please contact the project team at, or by calling 888-556-0232.  This telephone number is available 24-hours per day.  Dates and times are subject to change, and work may be postponed or rescheduled due to inclement weather, cooler than required temperatures, equipment availability or other issues.
