UDOT projects in Davis, Weber wait for weather

Feb 16 2012 - 8:07am


A spring thaw is likely still a few weeks away, but when the weather does warm, the state has several new road projects planned for the Top of Utah.

The most significant project is the extension of State Route 193, the Bernard Fisher Highway, from 2000 West in Davis County to Interstate 15.

The project involves Clearfield and Syracuse and has been on the Utah Department of Transportation's to-do list for some time.

The project was originally to begin in 2011, but the environmental review process took longer than expected.

UDOT also has three projects planned for I-15 in Davis County.

The state will remove asphalt and repave the freeway in Bountiful between Pages Lane and 2600 South.

Concrete rehabilitation will be performed on I-15 between 200 South in Clearfield and the Riverdale Road exit in Weber County.

An auxiliary lane will be added to the interstate from Hill Air Force Base's West Gate in Clearfield to 5600 South in Roy.

In Weber County, UDOT will repave Washington Boulevard between 26th Street and 36th Street and will add new pedestrian ramps and crosswalk upgrades.

The state will also repave 1900 West from Midland Drive to the Weber River and reconstruct SR-158 from Eden to Powder Mountain.

In Morgan and Box Elder counties, the state will reconstruct Interstate 84 from SR-66 in Morgan to SR-167 in Mountain Green, and Highway 89 from Brigham City to Sardine Summit.

There are no exact dates for when each of the projects might begin, but they are all slated to start in the spring or summer.

"A lot of it has to do with the weather," said UDOT Region One spokesman Vic Saunders. "But usually when spring comes we start working."

Saunders said other projects will likely be added to the list as the year goes on.

Environmental studies on the West Davis Corridor, 1800 North in Clinton and 24th Street in Ogden, which all began last year, will continue into 2012.

The West Davis Corridor project will likely extend the Legacy Parkway into Weber County, while the 1800 North project will add a new interchange on I-15 leading into Hill Air Force Base.

The 24th Street project will convert the road into a full interchange for I-15 and widen several other roads in the area.
