The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises travelers that crews will conduct roadway resurfacing operations on West Main Street (SR-102) in Tremonton this coming Sunday.
Crews will apply a “microsurface” to West Main Street on Sunday October 14. Microsurfacing is polymer-modified paving system that provides a durable seal to highway pavement and a smoother, quieter ride for motorists. Microsurfacing is applied by a specially designed machine which mixes the materials and applies them to the road. Initially a dark brown color, the product changes to a black as it cures. Microsurfacing is generally ready for traffic within one to three hours of application.
During the work on Sunday, traffic will be limited to certain movements within the work zone. No right turns will be allowed at the I-84 north-bound off ramp at Exit 40. Traffic at this point will be limited to left turns or movements straight ahead to re-enter the freeway. Trucks should proceed to exit 39, turn around and head southbound, using the south-bound ramp of Exit 40 to make a left turn to head east-bound on SR-102.
Additionally, flagging operations will be in place from the interchange to as far east as 2000 West Main Street. All business accesses will be maintained during the completion of this work. Some side road accesses on to SR-102, however, may be closed during this work. Motorists should follow the short detour routes that will be provided around these closures.
This work is weather dependent and may be postponed in the event of inclement weather.
