UDOT initiates night time closures of 1000 West

Nighttime closures are scheduled for Logan’s 1000 West for several days and will affect traffic from 1000 South to US 89-91, according Utah Department of Transportation spokesman Vic Saunders. “Starting today (Monday) the work is going to run from seven to 10 days although more rain could lengthen that time. The closure will run each night from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.” Saunders said the work at night is part of UDOT’s effort to have the least impact possible in the construction areas. He said Logan City’s relocation of utilities is underway now, including a natural gas line and a water line, which is required prior to the actual 10th west construction work. “We are going to pave with concrete and for obvious reasons we want to have all utility work completed first so there will be no need to cut into the concrete later,” said Saunders. He said UDOT is doing all it can to stabilize the flow of daytime traffic, in face of the extensive activity in the construction zone. “We believe we can wrap up this phase of the project by December,” said Saunders. “That will result in the complete re-paving of tenth west from US 89-91 on the south to about 600 North, plus from 600 West on 2500 North all the way to Main Street.” He said next year UDOT would return to finish the project. “Currently we are doing everything we can to keep at least one lane of traffic open at all times and to maintain access to businesses and residences in the construction zone so that life can go on as normally as possible. When there is a need for complete closures, we will do those at night time as often as we can.” Expected summertime UDOT work in the area will include a maintenance project on Logan’s Main Street from the south end of the city to 1000 North and a chip-seal on SR 165 from Hyrum to the “Y” at the south end of Logan plus some chip-seal work in Logan Canyon.
