This report advises motorists of major construction projects on Utah highways that may impact traffic, and is compiled every other week. The project descriptions provide general information: overall scope, basic traffic control measures and anticipated completion dates.

Some projects may not be included due to their short time table or lesser impact on traffic. Construction schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather conditions, equipment problems or emergency situations.

This report does not include information on federal, county or city projects unless UDOT is directly involved. Please refer to the proper agency for information on projects not included in this report.
