LOGAN – The Utah Department of Transportation advises motorists that Logan’s Main Street will be re-striped this coming Sunday, August 25 to create additional traffic lanes between 200 North (SR-30) and 400 North (US-89).
This re-striping will result in three lanes of traffic in each direction between 200 North and 400 North. The north-bound right lane between 200 North and 400 North will terminate as a right turn-only lane at 400 North. Similarly, the south-bound right lane between 400 North and 200 North will terminate as a right turn-only lane at 200 North.
Because of this lane re-striping, parking will no longer be allowed curbside on Main Street between 200 North and 400 North. Additionally, the crosswalk on the south side of the Main Street-400 North intersection has been permanently closed to pedestrians, to faciliate the movement of traffic through this location. All other legs of the intersection will remain open to pedestrians.
This re-striping is the result of a cooperative effort between UDOT, Logan City and the business and property owners in this area to alleviate traffic congestion on Main Street (US-89/91). Prior to this action being approved, meetings were held between UDOT and the business and property owners on Main Street and the Logan City Council to discuss and seek consensus on the proposed changes.
With the completion of the Tenth West (SR-252) Reconstruction project later this year, it is believed these two projects working together will help to improve the congestion on Logan’s Main Street.
