The Utah Department of Transportation released this year's first construction report last week.

This report advises motorists of major construction projects in the southern half of Utah that may impact traffic, and is compiled every other week.

Some road projects are excluded from this report due to short duration or low traffic impact. This report also excludes information on federal, county or city projects unless UDOT is directly involved.

Construction schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather, equipment problems, or emergency situations.

The interchange will feature a bridge over Main Street with new on- and off-ramps onto U.S. 6. Crews are currently building retaining walls and placing pipe culverts on the project. Crews will begin driving piles for the bridge on March 12. Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction with a reduced speed limit. Motorists should expect minimal delays.
