U.S. 89 Closed to Bicycles and Pedestrians
Shoulder closures along U.S. 89 are now underway. It is no longer safe for bicyclists and pedestrians to walk or ride in the shoulders of U.S. 89. We are asking for your cooperation in keeping everyone safe. When the project is complete the frontage roads will serve as a continuous bicycle route parallel to U.S. 89. Until then, bicyclists are asked to consider alternate routes. The closest parallel route is shown at right. Bicyclists and pedestrians wishing to cross U.S. 89 should use signalized intersections
Throughout construction, two lanes will be maintained in each direction on U.S. 89 during peak travel times. Nighttime and Sunday daytime lane closures are planned. Work will occur around the clock to reduce the overall project duration.
Many of the existing side streets accesses will be permanently closed and traffic rerouted to the interchanges to access U.S. 89. These access points will remain open until the nearest alternate access points are complete. Temporary access will be maintained for properties with direct access to/from U.S. 89.
The project team continues to coordinate with affected property owners. All impacted properties and full acquisitions have been identified and the team is working through the list in order of location and construction priority. If you are a property owner on or near U.S. 89, and have not yet been contacted, feel free to contact us. The project design map also details planned impacts to properties and you can also learn more about the overall property acquisition process here.
