PROJECT DESCRIPTION & TRAFFIC IMPACTS
SOUTHBOUND PASSING LANE @ CRESCENT JUNCTION (Starting July 26)
Expected Traffic Impacts: Since the bulk of this work will be along the shoulders, two-way traffic will be maintained using reduced speeds near the construction zones. However, alternating one-way traffic may be necessary at times where travel lanes and available shoulder space is limited. In these instances, motorists can expect flaggers and a pilot car to help navigate traffic flow. Delays are anticipated to be no more than 5-15 minutes.
ARCHES NATL. PARK TO SEVEN MILE WASH (ACTIVE)
Expected Traffic Impacts: One lane in each direction will remain open with reduced speeds (55mph) and light delays through construction zones. Delays are anticipated to be no more than 10-15 minutes. Business & Natl. Park access will be accommodated throughout the project timeline, but please be aware of shifting traffic patterns and/or brief closures near the park entrance as construction passes.
LA SAL JUNCTION TO S. MOAB (Starting July 11)
Expected Traffic Impacts: Alternating one-way traffic will be necessary near the active work zones. Motorists can expect flaggers and a pilot car onsite to help navigate traffic flow. Delays are anticipated to be no more than 10 minutes. Business & residential access will be accommodated with only brief nighttime periods where access will be limited during pavement resurfacing.
For your safety, as well as the safety of the working in the area, please use extra caution and stay alert while driving through construction zones. Businesses and residents in the area should anticipate increased noise, dust, and vibration associated with construction.
