Southeastern Utah road construction report

The following projects are underway by the Utah Department of Transportation in southeastern Utah. Each month the agency reports on it's progress on projects in the state.

U.S. 6 Helper Interchange

Project includes the construction of a grade-separated interchange on U.S. Highway 6 at North Main Street in Helper. 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 under the bridge. Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction with a reduced speed limit. Motorists should expect minimal delays. Expected completion: July 2008.

U.S. 6 Milepost 283-288 (about 10 miles north of I-70)

Project includes the addition of uphill passing lanes. Crews are currently placing fill material on shoulder areas of the roadway. Traffic is reduced to one lane in alternating directions as directed by flaggers and pilot cars during working hours (Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.). At night and on weekends, traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction with a reduced speed limit of 55 miles per hour. Motorists should expect delays of up to 20 minutes during working hours and moderate delays at night and on weekends. Project completion expected by fall 2007.

U.S. 191 Milepost 147-151 (about 15 miles north of Moab)

Project includes the addition of passing lanes. Crews are currently excavating shoulder areas of the roadway. Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction with a reduced speed limit of 55 miles per hour. Motorists should expect minimal delays. Project completion is expected in July 2007.

Project includes the addition of passing lanes in three locations (MP 96-99, MP 104-106, and MP 108-110). Crews are currently working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and are excavating shoulder areas and performing some blasting activities. Traffic is reduced to one lane in alternating directions as directed by flaggers and pilot cars. Motorists should expect delays of up to 20 minutes while traveling through the area. Project completion is expected in September 2007.
