Roadwork continues in county
Special to the Leader
Utah Department of of Transportaion will continue work in Box Elder County this week.
Work is underway on a repaving of Stone Road in Snowville. Traffic is restricted to one lane while crews remove asphalt and pave the new concrete lanes of the roadway. Crews are moving northward through the project corridor excavating and placing road base on the road shoulders.
Crews are are continuing the rehabilitation of the bridge decks of the I-15 bridges over the Bear River near Honeyville until mid-October. Presently the southbound bridge is being rehabilitated. Traffic is being crossed over and routed on the north-bound bridge and has been reduced to one lane in each direction. Speeds are reduced to 65 mph. Rehabilitation of the southbound bridge structure will continue through Aug. 29. Oversized trucks and wide loads will bypass the bridges on SR-13, using exit 365 at Corinne or Exit 376 at Elwood.
Concrete rehabilitation on I-15 will continue until early fall. I-15 is restricted to one lane in each direction between Riverside and the Idaho state line, which allows concrete to reach full strength before being opened to traffic. Crews are presently working in the inside and outside lanes of both north and southbound I-15. They will also be working at all bridge locations in the project area in both directions. Wide load restrictions are in place (10-foot maximum).
Region One Chip Seal crew are applying a chip seal on SR-315, between the I-15 interchange and US-89. During this work, one lane of traffic will be closed, with flaggers directing traffic. Motorists should reduce speed and be prepared to stop at any time. This work is weather sensitive and may be rescheduled.
On Wednesday, July 31, the Region One Chip Seal crew will be applying a sealcoat on SR-30 near Lucin, from milepost 4 to 8, and from milepost 20 to 24. During this work, one lane of traffic will be closed, with flaggers directing traffic.
