UDOT advises drivers to plan ahead for overnight closure on US 89
DAVIS COUNTY — Ahead of an overnight closure of U.S. 89, the Utah Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan for delays starting at 7 a.m. Sunday as traffic will be closed to one lane to move concrete barriers.
Both lanes of traffic on U.S. 89 between Oak Hills Drive in Layton and 400 North in Fruit Heights will be closed from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday.
Where all trucks will be redirected to Interstate 15 to bypass the closed portion, all other vehicles may use the frontage road east of U.S. 89 to bypass the closed portion. Heavy traffic and delays are possible.
According to a UDOT press release, construction crews will be placing beams for the new Crestwood Road bridge over the highway.
UDOT U.S. 89 Project Director Mike Romero said he understands road closures can be inconvenient and they are trying to keep all existing lanes open as much as possible while they rebuild and improve the highway.
“The Crestwood Road bridge will provide a new east-west route over US-89 to safely connect neighborhoods on both sides and make it easier for residents to get where they want to go,” Romero said.
