Matheson announces grant

Congressman Jim Matheson announced on Friday that a $1.7 million federal highway grant has been approved to improve safety and traffic flow on the highway now utilized by trucks hauling away the radioactive tailings pile near Moab.

Matheson said the U.S. Department of Transportation has released the discretionary grant award for work on US Highway 191. The purpose is to address issues associated with northbound traffic along the highway-heading north out of Moab-from the tailings site to the disposal cell at Crescent Junction. Proposed upgrades include signing, rumble strips and shoulder and intersection improvements.

"Moab is a major tourist destination and this highway is how tens of thousands of visitors come and go from their visits. It's important to help keep traffic moving and to prevent accidents with the large, slow trucks moving tailings from the old mill site to the rail spur loading area," said Matheson.
