LAYTON -- For the next three weeks, you shouldn't see any cars parked along Main Street in Layton and Clearfield.
The Utah Department of Transportation has begun a project to repave Main Street in Layton and Clearfield between Church Street in Layton and 300 North in Clearfield.
UDOT Region One spokesman Vic Saunders said the state has already begun pavement removal, and new paving will begin this week with crews working from Clearfield and moving south toward Layton.
Because of the paving work, no parking will be allowed on Main Street until July 18.
Lanes will be shifted and closed throughout the work as well.
As work moves along, local businesses along the road may experience access closures.
Saunders said fliers have been sent to all affected residents and businesses.
"We've alerted all the business owners so they can be prepared," Saunders said. "We are going to try to finish the work as soon as possible, so they won't be impacted too much."
Also, much of the work will be performed at night, Saunders said.
As part of the project, UDOT is upgrading pedestrian crossing ramps along the same stretch of road, making them compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
UDOT will install special pads, built into sidewalk concrete and road asphalt, that indicate where the sidewalk ends and the roadway begins and make the crossing areas more wheelchair-friendly.
UDOT is doing the pedestrian ramp work across the entire state and will make upgrades or construct new ramps on at least 30 percent of primary pedestrian access points across the state every three years, with 100 percent completion expected by the end of 2016.
