The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists of the following road construction and maintenance activities that may cause traffic impacts in the state’s Northern Region.

Alpine Highway Winter Closures:

East Canyon to Emigration Canyon

State Road 65, the Big Mountain Highway, will be evaluated daily based on the weather and is planned to be closed mid-month.  Adverse weather conditions may close it without advance warning, but it will close no matter the weather conditions by midnight, Monday, Nov. 30.    When the closure does occur, SR-65 will close between milepost 3, just north of the Emigration Canyon turn-off in east Salt Lake County, and milepost 14, about a mile south of the East Canyon Reservoir in Morgan County.  Once the gates are closed and locked, the entire length of the roadway between these two points will remain out of service to all traffic through approximately late May 2018.

Huntsville to Woodruff

State Road 39, the Monte Cristo Highway, will be evaluated daily based on the weather and is planned to be closed mid-month.  Adverse weather conditions may close it without advance warning, but it will close no matter the weather conditions by midnight, Monday, Nov. 30.  When the closure does occur, SR-39 will be closed between milepost 37 at the Ant Flat Road area east of Huntsville, Weber County and milepost 56 near Woodruff, Rich County.  Once the gates are closed and locked, the entire length of the roadway between these two points will remain out of service to all traffic through approximately late May 2018.

Weber County

Work is winding up on a pavement rehabilitation and pedestrian ramp reconstruction project along Wall Avenue (SR-204), from Riverdale Road (SR-26) to US-89. All paving and striping work has been completed, and crews will be on the road working on removing remaining steel plates and cleaning out utility forms from the concrete pours. Work is anticipated to take place daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more info, call the project hotline at 801-336-6977, or e-mail ashlie@frontlinepi.com.

Ogden Canyon

Work is coming to an end on a project replacing structural “bin walls” that stabilize the hillside adjacent to SR-39, at the mouth of Ogden Canyon.  While no lane closures are expected, lanes will be shifted and shoulder restrictions could take place that may cause traffic to slow down.  Workers will be present from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.  Watch for signs call for lane shifting as you approach this work.  Be prepared to stop.
