MORGAN -- The Utah Transportation Commission approved three significant Weber County road projects to be added to the state's to-do list for the next three years.
At its monthly meeting last week in Morgan, the commission approved adding projects on Highway 89, Interstate 84 and 21st Street to the state Transportation Improvement Program.
Utah Department of Transportation Program Manager Bill Lawrence said the $5 million Highway 89 project will include intersection improvements at Harrison Boulevard in Ogden and the addition of a through lane in the same general area.
A $4 million major rehabilitation project will take place on I-84 between I-15 and Riverdale Road.
A major rehabilitation project will also take place on 21st Street in Ogden, between I-15 and Wall Avenue, carrying a price tag of $3.3 million.
The projects will be considered for 2014 and 2015.
Also at the meeting, the commission approved a transfer of $350,000 of Transportation Improvement funds to the 300 West and Main Street intersection project in Kaysville.
Lawrence said the original project involved the design and installation of a traffic signal at the intersection, but during the environmental process UDOT identified that the north leg of the intersection should be realigned with the south leg. The realignment caused the project's cost to increase.
