Sewer line installation prompts closure of 1000 West for up to 2 months

Installation of a new sewer pipeline by Logan City Public Works means the closure of a stretch Logan’s 1000th West for up to two months. “The closure will be from 400 North to 200 South and will last up to 60 days,” said Vic Saunders of UDOT. “Some portions of it will get done sooner, some of it will take longer to do. “When the project began this spring and we started to do earth moving and other things to prepare the road for construction, Logan City did some inspections on their line to see if it would stand up during the construction process. They found significant corrosion and felt they needed to do some long term maintenance before we began to pave.” The original Tenth West reconstruction game plan called for the street to be paved later in the summer. “Before that we had to make sure all the utility work was done,” said Saunders. “We can’t get the road preparation work complete until the sewer lines and other utilities are repaired and ready to be covered. Once they are covered with concrete, there will be a moratorium on any digging into the road surface for a number of years.” Saunders advised those who do not live on Tenth West or have business there to travel another route. He said it is still UDOT’s goal to complete the project before the end of the year.
