NEWS RELEASE: Monte Cristo Highway Opens For Season On May 25

For Immediate Release

 

Monte Cristo Highway Opens For Season On May 25

Seasonal highway will remain open to all traffic until next fall

 

Ogden– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists and outdoor recreation enthusiasts that state Road 39, the Monte Cristo Highway, will open to all traffic for the spring and summer season at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 25.

SR-39 will open from milepost 37, the Ant Flat parking lot east of Huntsville, to milepost 56 near Woodruff in Rich County.  Once the gates are opened, the roadway between these two points will remain open until late next fall.  The remainder of this route is open year around.

SR-39 is closed for the winter months between these points each year due to motorist safety concerns and the prohibitive cost of keeping it open to traffic.  The roadway is opened each spring once winter weather conditions have generally subsided.  Motorists are advised, however, that winter storms may still occur at the highest elevations on this highway well into the summer months, so they should be prepared for this when traveling this route.

For information about Utah road conditions 24-hours per day, go to the UDOT Traffic Website at http://udottraffic.utah.gov, or download the free Utah Traffic App, available for download by most mobile devices.

For Immediate Release

 

 SR-30 Rehab Project from Riverside to Collinston Begins on May 1

Roadwork will take 60 days to remove and replace the top layer of pavement

 

 

OGDEN – The Utah Department of Transportation advises motorists that a pavement rehabilitation project will get started on state Route 30 on May 1, from I-15 in Riverside to the SR-30/SR-38 junction in Collinston.

The SR-30 Rehabilitation Project will begin on Monday, and crews will be removing and then replacing the pavement on that roadway. The intent of this project is to extend the life of the roadway by removing the top layer of pavement and replacing it with new asphalt. Minor upgrades will also be completed in select areas along the route, such as placing gravel shoulder and repairing guardrails.

During this project, which is expected to take 60 days to complete, work is expected to occur Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with occasional Saturday work. One lane of traffic will be open in the vicinity of work being accomplished each day, with flaggers directing all traffic movements. Congestion and delays are possible, so motorists should consider alternative routes in advance.

This project is expected to be substantially complete during the month of July 2017.

Stakeholders who would like to be kept abreast of project progress can receive a weekly email updates by sending an email to SR30Renewed@utah.gov and write “updates” in the subject line. Schedules are subject to change due to materials availability or weather.

For questions, concerns or to request email updates contact the project team at 800-278-4282 or by emailing SR30Renewed@utah.gov
