Re-Prioritization of Concrete Work
There is a regional cement shortage impacting the availability of concrete across the Intermountain West. The project team is coordinating with concrete suppliers, but will likely have to re-prioritize the order of work activities to focus on bridges, center median barrier, then curb and gutter which facilitates asphalt placement. Driveways, sidewalks and other concrete features will be postponed until the shortage resolves or those priority items are completed with the interchange openings later this summer.
This shortage is delaying opening of the 200 North/400 North, Oak Hills Drive and Gordon Avenue interchanges by 3 weeks to a month but all are still on track to open this summer. These timeframes can still change based on whether this situation continues or changes.
U.S. 89 Daytime Lane Restrictions
Northbound U.S. 89 will be limited to one lane during the day, from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. between Oak Hills Drive and Cherry Lane while crews place concrete median barrier through next week.
Oak Hills Drive Daytime Lane Restrictions
July 6-9, Oak Hills Drive will be restricted to one lane daily, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for water line installation. Area motorists should be prepared for a one-way traffic configuration, temporary signal or flaggers as well as some traffic congestion and delays.
Ongoing Activities by Area:
Lloyd Road Closed North of Bogey Lane
Lloyd Road is closed north of Bogey Lane through early August. Traffic should use Eagle Way as an alternate route while crews perform a bore to install a sewer crossing underneath U.S. 89.
Utility installation, west side frontage road and wall construction are underway in preparation for paving in late July.
200 North/400 North West of U.S. 89
Completion of the widen gin and tie-in of the the west side of the interchange is planned for this week or early next, grading and sidewalk placement occurring as materials availability allows. Area motorists can expect one-way flagging during this activity and should plan additional time.
Mountain Road, east of U.S. 89
Crews are nearing completion of waterline installation and plan to complete sewer and storm drain installation by early July. Materials hauling, placement and grading are planned in July in preparation for frontage road paving in August.
Area residents can expect continued activity, noise, dust, vibration and intermittent night work.
