SR-9 Construction Update

The following information is a direct copy from UDOT’s SR-9 Renewed Project email [sharing for your information]:

“Project Wide: ROADWAY

  • Nightly beginning Monday, April 2 through the first week of April, crews will lay the final layer of asphalt to seal the roadway, provide a smoother ride and more durability.
    • This activity will occur over the course of five or six nights, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. but moves faster than the paving on the project to date because it is a thinner layer.
    • Expect night noise, vibration and an increase in construction equipment. Stoppage times may be longer than usual due to this work, despite there being less traffic overall.
  • Permanent roadway striping is scheduled to begin April 5, with crosswalks and pavement message installation as early as April 12.
  • The week of April 9, crews plan to raise utility manholes and covers, and pour concrete rings (collars) around them to secure them in the roadway.
    • Metal plates will cover these collars for up to 5 days, or until the concrete reaches strength. Metal plates can clank or rattle when traffic drives over them. They will be removed as soon as the concrete reaches strength.

Red Rock Inn to LDS Ward – Southbound

  • Remaining curb, gutter, driveway and sidewalk placement is scheduled in this area through mid-April.
    • Expect access closures for a few hours while crews place concrete, allow it to set-up, and then build temporary ramps to reopen the access.

Project Wide: OFF-ROADWAY

  • Landscape restoration activities are scheduled to begin next week and occur through April.
    • Crews will focus on restoring sprinklers and irrigation so that property owners can begin watering landscaping.
  • Tie-ins between paths and the new sidewalk will be addressed on a one-on-one basis as needed and are planned through the month of April.
  • Asphalt driveway tie-ins are scheduled for early April.
    • Anticipate crews working in the closure areas or on the shoulder in various locations throughout town.
  • Throughout the month of April, crews will remove and replace sections of new sidewalk that were vandalized during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience this re-work may cause and ask for the community’s help in ensuring that any replacement concrete work is allowed to cure without interference.
    • Please call the police if you see anyone tampering with new concrete work. 
  • Sign installation is ongoing through mid-April on both sides of SR-9.
