The following construction activities are dependent on weather conditions and are subject to change in the event of inclement weather.
7/20/2012 Week Look Ahead:
Midway Main Street
Once the final paving operation in Heber and Midway Lane is complete, paving will begin on Midway Main Street. This work is expected to begin on August 1st or 2nd but is dependent on weather conditions and materials availability. When this final paving phase begins, construction will take place on one side of the road at a time so traffic will be shifted to allow crews room to work. One lane in each direction will be maintained and business accesses will also be open during this work.
Midway Lane/Heber Area
The final asphalt paving operation is scheduled to begin again on Wednesday, July 25 starting at Heber Main St. going west on 100 S. It is expected that the work through the Heber and Midway Lane area will take approximately one week to complete. No work is scheduled for Saturday, July 28 due to the Wasatch County Fair events on that day.
During paving, traffic will be limited to one lane, one direction at a time with flaggers present to direct traffic. 10-15 minute delays are expected. Access to businesses will be maintained except during brief periods when work passes by them. Congestion in the area is likely so drivers are encouraged to plan for extra travel time through this area.
Crews are scheduled to finish the landscaping in the park strip today for properties along 100 S. between Heber Main St. and 600 W. Residents and businesses are encouraged to begin watering their new landscaping as soon as possible.
