SR-178 and SR-198 Renewed
SR-178 and SR-198 Renewed
The final layer of pavement on SR-178 (800 South) has been laid and the road resurfacing should complete by the end of day, June 22, 2022. The permanent road striping will then be applied.
Clean-up for the area is ongoing as well.
Crews will begin work on the final layer of road resurfacing (for the entire length of SR-198) on Monday June 27th. This work will begin at the southern end of of the project limits (see project map at bottom) on SR-198 at Main Street Santaquin and will move northward. Soft spot repairs are taking place in the next few days in preparation for this final road resurfacing layer. It is expected to take two weeks to complete this final layer of road resurfacing. When this work is complete permanent road striping will be applied.
Bridge repairs and resurfacing work is largely complete on the bridge at 800 South and I-15. Work crews are expected to finish the final resurfacing work today, June 22, after which traffic control can return to normal.
Work on pedestrian ramps, sidewalks and gutters is complete, except for some repair work and clean up. This repair work will be completed as soon as concrete supplies allow
New Signalized Intersection (800 South & 930 West)
The installation of the new traffic signal at 800 South and 930 West is complete. When the thermal crosswalk markings have been applied the traffic signal will be made operational.
With the new traffic signal, UDOT will need to prohibit on-street parking from 1000 West to 830 West to ensure all driving, biking, and pedestrian movements are as visible as possible.
The new center median that has been installed at the traffic signal site increases the traffic and pedestrian safety as well
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will be resurfacing State Routes 198 and 178 [Payson 800 South (see map)] to extend the life of the roadways. In addition, pedestrian ramps will be reconstructed, and improvements will be made to existing bridges.
Construction work will be done in segments.
Access to driveways and property entrances will be maintained but property owners should expect periodic, brief interruptions during removal and placement of pavement. Motorists should anticipate
lane shifts and/or lane restrictions where crews are working. Businesses and residents nearby may experience noise, vibrations, and dust from the construction equipment.
Please drive carefully when traveling through construction areas and pay attention to all traffic signs, barrels, the workers, and equipment operating within the work zones.
