Impacts to U.S. 89
Intermittent daytime closures during off-peak hours can be expected in either direction on U.S. 89 throughout the project duration while crews complete work items like barrier, wall panels and paint restriping.
The highway lighting systems at the bridges and off-ramp intersections at 400 North and Gordon Avenue interchange are now functional. The lights at the Oak Hills Drive interchange are expected to be functional by mid-March.
As spring approaches, many residents and property owners adjacent to U.S. 89 may begin to think about landscape repairs or finalization of items like curb, gutter, sidewalk and park strip. The project’s primary focus remains on completing construction of the highway, Antelope Drive interchange and Nicholls Road and Crestwood Road bridges. Sidewalk, curb and gutter work are ongoing on the frontage roads in various locations through the end of this year. Landscaping activities are not planned to resume until fall and are limited.
Finish items like these could extend into 2023 when the project is scheduled for completion. If you have questions about impacts to your property, please feel free to contact the project team via email or the hotline below.
Weber Basin Water Conservancy District Customers should be prepared for a delayed irrigation season start that is not associated with or affected by project work. More information is available here: https://weberbasin.com/Drought.
Other irrigation company customers should contact their providers for more information.
With warmer weather, we also see an increase in people enjoying the outdoors. The project team would like your help in keeping the project safe by reminding you to stay out of the work zone. Please do not walk, roll, or ride on the bridges, in the work zone, or behind the barrels on the frontage roads, bridges and neighboring streets. U.S. 89 is closed to bicycles and pedestrians.
Crews are working to complete sidewalks and pedestrian access routes as concrete supplies allow. We appreciate your help in keeping everyone safe.
