100 East-Gateway Drive opens for traffic

It opened Wednesday night and the cities of Logan, River Heights and Providence, along with the Cache Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Utah Department of Transportation are celebrating the completion of the second phase of the 100 East roadway construction project. Jeff Gilbert, Executive Director for the CMPO, says the 100 East road will be called Gateway Drive in Providence. “It’s about a $12 million project that connects Logan with Providence,” Gilbert says, “essentially going from 300 South in Logan to Providence Lane in Providence. “It’s a major collector road that is intended to try to provide some relief to Main Street and give some other mobility options to those residents who have to travel the south end.” The project was completed with a combination of federal funds, locally matched funds, as well as funds received from Cache County as a result of the voter-approved transportation sales tax fund. Gilbert says drivers should exercise caution right now as shoulder work will continue for the next few weeks and temporary closures of side streets may be required for lane stripe painting. The project included road widening and construction of new roadway segments to make the three lane road with side walk, landscaping and bike lane.
