Those with time sensitive travel should consider alternate routes.

 

Uintah

May 18-24: Construction of a cable median barrier will begin this week on I-84, between milepost 87 and 89.  While most of this work will occur in the interstate median, motorists should be alert for construction vehicles slowing down to end this area, or entering the inside lanes to leave the construction zone.

 

 

Cache County

 

Logan

May 18-24: Work is continuing on SR-252 (1000 West) as part of Phase One of the Tenth West Reconstruction.  Work is underway to pave sections of the Logan River Bridge, and one lane of traffic in each direction is being maintained.  Flaggers may be used at the bridge so travelers should be prepared to stop at any time for short periods.  Meanwhile, the north-bound lane between the Logan River Bridge and 200 South, will be closed for the next week to facilitate the construction of curb and gutter.  Sidewalk and landscaping work also continues, with this work being conducted off of the main roadway.  Motorists should be alert for construction equipment working adjacent to active lanes of traffic, and construction vehicles pulling away from the curb at any time.  For more information, e-mail <a href=”mailto:tenthwest@utah.gov” target=”_blank”>tenthwest@utah.gov</a> or call, toll-free, <a href=”tel:888-427-8585″ target=”_blank”>888-427-8585</a>.

 

May 18-24: Work is now underway on the repaving of 2500 North, between 600 West and Main Street (US-91). Crews are removing the old pavement and preparing the roadway to receive a new, long-life concrete surface.  Travelers should expect lane closures, with one lane of traffic in each direction being maintained at all times, and a left turn lane at Main Street.  Flaggers will be present, and motorists should travel cautiously and be prepared to stop at all times for construction work activities.  Heavy traffic congestion is expected, especially during peak travel periods.  Motorists with time-sensitive travel are advised to seek alternate routes, unless your business takes you specifically to this corridor, where businesses will remain open. For more information, e-mail <a href=”mailto:tenthwest@utah.gov” target=”_blank”>tenthwest@utah.gov</a> or call, toll-free, <a href=”tel:888-427-8585″ target=”_blank”>888-427-8585</a>.

 

May 18-24: Utility work is being completed on the Tenth West Project by a variety of utility companies in anticipation of construction work this fall and next year.  Logan City Light and Power is relocating power poles to the east side of the roadway between 400 North and 1400 North.  Additionally, Both Comcast and CenturyLink are updating infrastructure along 2500 North along the North side of the road, while CenturyLink is working on utilities on the west side of 1000 West between 300 North and 2500 North.  Also, expect to see some water line work near the intersection of 2500 North and Main Street, as crews replace valves in the ground in this area.  Utility work is being conducted Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m., with occasional night work possible.  For more information about this Tenth West Project-related utility work, e-mail <a href=”mailto:tenthwest@utah.gov” target=”_blank”>tenthwest@utah.gov</a> or call, toll-free, <a href=”tel:888-427-8585″ target=”_blank”>888-427-8585</a>.

 

May 18-24: Work is underway on a project to install cable for traffic signal management on US-89/91, between 1000 West and 100 North in Logan.  This coming week, left turn lanes will be closed intermittently between 600 South and 1400 North to facilitate fiber optic cable tie-ins with the signals at the intersections within this zone.  However  all other traffic lanes will be maintained.  Motorists needing to turn left anywhere on Main Street between 600 South and 1400 North may want to consider using 100 West as an alternate route as far as 700 North, and 200 West between 700 and 1400 North to avoid possible delays.  This project will take approximately one more month to complete.

 

Providence

May 18-24: Work is proceeding on the installation of a new traffic signal at 1700 South and SR-165 in Providence.  As a result of this work, 300 East in Providence is CLOSED at SR-165 Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Additionally 1700 South is CLOSED 24 hours per day, from SR-165 to 135 West, Providence.  This closure will remain in place until the intersection work is complete.  With the closure of 1700 South, commuter traffic which normally uses this street to access US-89/91 must now use alternate routes, such as 1200 South.  Access to the businesses on the east end of 1700 South has been maintained from US-89/91.  For more information about this project please call <a href=”tel:%28801%29%20518-5066″ target=”_blank”>(801) 518-5066</a>.

Mountain Green

May 18-24: Work is underway on the reconstruction of I-84, from Mountain Green (SR-167) to Morgan (SR-66).  Crews will begin construction work on the Peterson interchange this week, which will require lane and ramp closures from time to time.  Motorists may consider using the Old Highway as an alternate to I-84 to access I-84 east at Morgan or West at Mountain Green.  Asphalt paving will also begin along the corridor this week, so motorists also should watch for an increase in construction vehicles within the I-84 corridor. Concrete paving is expected to begin in the coming weeks.  Traffic is presently operating in the west-bound lanes of I-84, and is restricted to one lane in each direction separated by concrete barrier.  Loads wider than 12-feet wide are prohibited on I-84 in the construction zone.  The exception to this restriction is wide loads terminating in the Croydon or Morgan area west-bound from I-80 to I-84 at Echo Junction.  These loads may be accepted on a case by case basis with advance notification.  For more information on oversized loads routing call the UDOT Motor Carrier Division at <a href=”tel:801-965-4892″ target=”_blank”>801-965-4892</a>, the Echo Port of Entry at <a href=”tel:%28435%29%20336-5286″ target=”_blank”>(435) 336-5286</a>, or the Perry Port of Entry at <a href=”tel:%28435%29%20734-9414″ target=”_blank”>(435) 734-9414</a>.  For general information about the I-84 Restore project, call the project hotline at <a href=”tel:801-336-6977″ target=”_blank”>801-336-6977</a>.
