UDOT Prepares to Start Rehabilitation Activities at Bridge on U.S. Highway 6
The Utah Department of Transportation will start rehabilitation activities on Aug. 16 at a bridge located on U.S. Highway 6 approximately 12 miles north of Green River.
Work on the aging bridge will reduce traffic traveling on U.S. 6 to two narrow lanes with a reduced speed limit, according to the state transportation department.
Carbon County motorists driving along U.S. 6 toward Green River should expect traffic delays throughout the construction area.
In addition, residents and vehicle drivers transporting wide loads will need to use Utah Route 10 and Interstate 70 while traveling between Green River and Price, according to state transportation department officials.
Travel restrictions will apply to all motor vehicles wider than 11 feet, including boats, trailers and trucks.
Motorists driving through the highway construction zone are encouraged to exercise caution, prepare to stop and watch for work crews along with heavy equipment.
Work on the bridge improvement and highway paving project will be performed during daylight hours Monday through Friday through mid-October, concluded the Utah Department of Transportation
