DUCHESNE COUNTY, Utah, March 26, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — The Utah Department of Transportation will begin bridge repair work on U.S. Highway 40 over Starvation Reservoir Monday.
“This scheduled bridge maintenance project will maximize the value of UDOT’s infrastructure investment,” said a statement from UDOT. “Improvements will include renovating the parapet walls and resurfacing the concrete bridge deck to extend the life of the roadway. SR-35 and SR-208 are available as alternate routes to avoid construction.”
There will be 15-30 minute travel delays possible and reduced speeds and lane closures in the construction area. Construction activity is anticipated Monday-Thursday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday.
“Remember that for your safety and the safety of those working in the area, please reduce speed, stay alert, and exercise caution through the work zone,” the statement said.
The project is expected to be completed in fall 2021.
