Closure signs barricade traffic from entering or exiting U.S. Highway 6 at North Main Street east of the highway. The closure is expected to last three weeks while construction crews install utility lines under the Main Street crossing.
Carbon County residents attending the Helper electric light parade this weekend should be aware of which routes into and out of the city are open and which are closed.

The west side of the highway is accessible from eastbound Highway 6 at 10th North, North Main at the Martin Road crossing, North Main near Swifts and at Hill Street.
