An update on the Utah Department of Transportation’s bridge rehabilitation on 100 North was given to the Price City Council on Wednesday evening. The project will begin on March 11 and take approximately 120 days to complete.
The strategy involves installing a false deck to catch debris as well as removing existing asphalt overlay and concrete deck. This will expose the steel beams that were from the original design. After this is complete, there will be a new concrete deck and sidewalk. There will also be polymer overlay, a fence and striping.
The project has been titled the “West Price Bridge Renewed.” The construction will close the area for the full amount of 120 days and will provide a detour. Drivers will be asked to bypass Exit 240 and take Exit 241 as a substitute. There will be crews monitoring the traffic that is expected to occur during this time. Contractors expect this job to be accomplished before school begins again in the fall.
The public and community is invited to an open house to learn more about this project. It will be hosted on Thursday, Feb. 28 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to the event and there will also be invitations sent out to 5,000 people in the local area. This invitation will include a hotline number and email.
The desire is for the community to be updated during this task. Members of the community are encouraged to ask questions and express concerns during the open house that can be answered by those actively participating in the project.
