NEWS RELEASE: I-15 to Close for Two Nights in Box Elder County

For Immediate Release

I-15 to Close for Two Nights in Box Elder County

Interstate closure will allow crews to demolish bridge over I-15 in Honeyville

 

SALT LAKE CITY (Nov. 13, 2017) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises northern Utah drivers to plan ahead for two overnight closures on I-15 in Box Elder County this week. I-15 will close in both directions at Exit 372 in Honeyville on Tuesday, Nov. 14, and Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. each night for bridge demolition.

While the bridge over I-15 is being demolished, UDOT will divert all I-15 traffic onto the off- and on-ramps at exit 372 in Honeyville. Drivers will still be able to continue on I-15, but will need to plan for moderate delays and allow extra time to travel through the detour. Motorists with time-sensitive travel should consider using alternate routes, such as parallel SR-13, at either Elwood or Corinne, or via SR-38, at either Collinston or Brigham City. Intermittent lane closures on I-15 may take place through the remainder of the week.

In addition to the overnight I-15 closures, the S.R. 240 bridge over I-15 at exit 372 (the Honeyville interchange) is now closed until April 2018. During this closure, the interstate ramps will remain open and vehicles wishing to cross east-west over I-15 will be detoured to the interchanges to the north (Exit 376, Tremonton/Garland) and south (Exit 365, 900 North). Crews will demolish the existing bridge and construct a new bridge over the interstate.

For further information about the I-15 Honeyville Interchange project, drivers can call the project hotline at 801-901-4064, email the project team at honeyvillebridge@utah.gov, or visit the project website at www.udot.utah.gov/go/honeyvillebridge.

NEWS RELEASE: UDOT Releases US-89 State Environmental Study Draft

UDOT Releases US-89 State Environmental Study Draft

Draft Includes Preferred Alternative for Future US-89 Operations

 

OGDEN– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has released its draft US-89 State Environmental Study.

The draft study, which reflects the preferred alternative for the US-89 corridor from Farmington to I-84 in Uintah, is now available for public viewing on the project website. The preferred alternative was determined after over forty concepts underwent a rigorous screening process to evaluate the most feasible, environmentally responsible, and best addressed concerns raised by the public.

UDOT will also hold a public hearing on Thursday September 7, to obtain public comment on the environmental study draft. The hearing will take place from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Davis Conference Center, 800 Heritage Park Boulevard in Layton. The public is invited to attend this meeting, to learn more about the study and its resulting recommendation.

“The main purpose of the public hearing is to provide clarity on the preferred alternative, as well as to gather public input,” said UDOT Project Manager Michael Romero. “Members of the project team will be available at the hearing to answer any questions.”

If unable to attend the hearing, the public is encouraged to review the US-89 State Environmental Study draft, and to make comments via the study website at “www.udot.utah.gov/us89”, by email to “us89@utah.gov,” or by phone at 888-752- US89 (8789). Comments may also be made by mail to: The US-89 State Environmental Study, c/o FrontLine Public Involvement, P.O. Box 1033, Farmington, UT 84025.

The formal public comment period begins Thursday August 24, and continues through Monday September 25.

UDOT Releases West Davis Corridor Final Environmental Impact Statement

For Immediate Release 

UDOT Releases West Davis Corridor Final Environmental Impact Statement 

UDOT and the Federal Highway Administration recommend a preferred alternative 

 

SALT LAKE CITY (July 6, 2017) — The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) today released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a potential transportation corridor in western Davis and Weber counties. The Final EIS proposes a new 19-mile highway from Farmington to West Point, connecting with I-15 and Legacy Parkway at Glovers Lane on the south end, and S.R. 37 (1800 North) at approximately 4000 West on the north end.

Representing the final outcome of a seven-year process, the Final EIS details the West Davis Corridor (WDC) Study Team’s analysis of the western Davis and Weber community and environment. A total of 51 alternatives were developed and evaluated by the study team. This effort incorporated input from residents, farmers, community and environmental groups, cities, counties, state and federal resource agencies and other interested groups, which helped to refine the preferred alternative that is now being proposed.

“After years of detailed analysis, collaboration, and extensive public outreach, together we’ve identified a transportation solution that will benefit western Davis and Weber counties for many years to come,” said UDOT Project Manager Randy Jefferies. “The preferred alternative addresses current and future transportation needs while minimizing impacts to the community and environment.”

The number of households in western Weber and Davis counties is expected to increase by more than 65 percent by 2040, and Davis County is currently the second most densely populated county in the state. This one project will reduce traffic congestion west of I-15 by 35 percent in this area.

With the release of the Final EIS, an official comment period will take place through August 31 to allow the public time to review the document and submit their comments to UDOT and FHWA. The Final EIS is available on the WDC website (udot.utah.gov/westdavis), as well as in hard copy form at city hall buildings and libraries throughout the study area. Comments can be submitted the following ways:

All comments will be provided to FHWA for review and consideration. As the decision-making agency, FHWA, in coordination with UDOT, will respond to all  comments received on the Final EIS and include those responses in the Record of Decision document.

NEWS RELEASE: Ogden Canyon Highway to Close for Paving Work on Monday, June 19

For Immediate Release

 

Ogden Canyon Highway to Close for Paving Work on Monday, June 19

Local residents will be allowed in and out, while all others motorists must detour

  

Ogden – Utah Department of Transportation advises Ogden Valley and Ogden-area motorists that state Route 39, the Ogden Canyon Highway, will be closed to all through-traffic on Monday, June 19, while crews perform paving work in the canyon.

On Monday, crews will be paving over water line trenches in the canyon that have begun to subside since construction was performed there several years ago. In order to complete this paving work in one day and keep delay and detouring to a minimum, Ogden Canyon (SR-39) will be closed at Valley Drive on the west end, and at SR-158 over Pine View Dam on the east end, from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday June 19.

During this work, all normal through-traffic to and from the Ogden Valley should consider using I-84 in Weber Canyon and SR-167, the Trappers Loop Highway, between Huntsville and Mountain Green, as an alternate route. Ogden Canyon residents will be allowed in and out of the closed area as needed.

For more information, iPhone and Android smartphone users may download the free UDOT Traffic app from the iPhone App Store or Google Play, to stay abreast of traffic movements and construction work 24-hours a day.

NEWS RELEASE: UDOT to Host Layton Open House Discussing US-89 Concepts on June 20

For Immediate Release

UDOT to Host Layton Open House Discussing US-89 Concepts on June 20

Public invited to view and comment on conceptual plans for updated US-89

 

Ogden – Utah Department of Transportation will hold an open house on Tuesday, June 20, to present conceptual alternative designs for the State Environmental Study addressing the future expansion of US-89. The open house will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Layton High School, 440 Wasatch Drive in Layton.

 

UDOT Project Manager Michael Romero said these conceptual alternatives have been developed following initial public input, and have been evaluated based on three basic criteria: reasonable access, travel demand, and their compatibility with network roadway classification. He said the open house will be an opportunity for the community to express their opinions on which of these concepts are preferred, and should move forward for more detailed study.

 

“Given that there are so many feasible options, we’re eager to get feedback from those who will be directly impacted by any changes,” said Romero.

 

He said the public is invited to visit the open house at any time during the meeting to participate in discussion about the environmental study and the future expansion of US-89. Members of the study team, including the project manager, traffic engineers and public information coordinators, will be available to discuss ideas and suggestions from those in attendance.

 

The public is encouraged to visit the project website at http://www.udot.utah.gov/us89/ for more detailed information about the project, to sign up for email updates, and to view the study timeline.

For any other questions or concerns, please contact the study hotline at 888-752-US89 (8789)
