U.S. 189; Wallsburg to Heber Week Look Ahead 7/20/12

***Work will be suspended on Tuesday, July 24 to help traffic move more efficiently through the area on the Pioneer Day holiday. For safety reasons, traffic control devices will stay in place. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday!***

Week Look Ahead 7/20/12

  • Paving of the passing lanes by Rainbow Bay was originally scheduled to begin on Monday, July 23 but has been postponed to Wednesday, July 25 due to the Pioneer Day holiday. Traffic will be limited to one lane, one direction at a time with flaggers present to direct traffic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday next week. Drivers are encouraged to plan for extra time when traveling through the area.
  • Northbound S. Daniels Rd. is scheduled to close to traffic for a couple of days at the end of next week while crews tie-in to S. Daniels Rd. for the new road connection between S. Daniels Rd. and the 1300 S. intersection.  This was originally scheduled for this week but has been postponed due to the holiday weekend. Traffic traveling northbound on S. Daniels Rd. will be encouraged to seek alternate routes and traffic traveling southbound turning from U.S.-189 onto S. Daniels Rd. will be shifted to allow crews to do this work.
  • In the coming weeks, asphalt work at the Heber Main St./U.S.-189 intersection is scheduled to begin. Crews will remove portions of the old asphalt and repave in this area. The concrete median will also be relocated. Once it starts, this work is expected to take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete. Lanes will be reduced and congestion is likely. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes during this time.
  • Crews are scheduled to begin paving the south side of U.S.- 189 between S. Charleston Rd. and Heber Main St. in the coming weeks. Traffic will remain shifted to the north and one lane in each direction will remain open. Drivers can expect increased truck traffic as this work occurs. This work is being done to widen the road in this area.

Ongoing Project Work:

  • Crews are finishing the connections for the underground cables that will be used for traffic management. This work should be complete in the coming weeks. It is being done outside of the roadway and should not impact traffic.
  • Traffic has been shifted to the new pavement on the north side of the highway between 1300 S. and S. Charleston Rd. as crews continue to install material in preparation for paving and widening the road on that side. 

Other Area Projects:

  • Provo Canyon Concrete Rehab-  Work to repair and replace new concrete in certain sections of U.S. 189 near the mouth of Provo Canyon has begun. One lane in each direction will remain open but traffic will be shifted to allow crews room to work. Access to Sundance as well as Vivian and Nunn Park will be maintained. For more information this project, please contact Cameron Erickson with Dry Creek Structures at (801) 766-0444.
  • Heber City Water Line-  Heber City is replacing a water line on U.S. 40 near the U.S. 189 intersection. For questions about that work, please contact Willa Motley at 435-654-2226. This work is expected to be complete by the end of next week.

Project Overview:
This project is being built to meet increased traffic demands on U.S. 189 and improve safety in the area. Construction for this project started in February 2012 and is scheduled to be complete by December 2012. The project includes widening U.S. 189 between S. Charleston Rd. (S.R. 113) and Heber Main St. (U.S. 40) to a 5 lane section which will include two lanes in each direction and a center turn lane. The project will also build an extension of passing lanes between Deer Creek State Park and S. Charleston Rd. Buried fiber optic conduit for traffic management will be placed alongside U.S. 189 from Deer Creek State Park to U.S. 40. Additionally, a new connection to Daniels Road at U.S. 189 will be built near the 1300 South intersection in Heber City.
