Open House on the Nine Mile Canyon Road Improvement Project

PRICE, Utah — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Price Field Office is hosting two information meetings to discuss granting a right-of-way to Carbon County for the exiting Nine Mile Canyon Road (County Road #740) to change the running surface to chip seal. In addition, there will be some upgrades such as drainage culverts, ditches and concrete ford crossings. The project would upgrade a total of 36 miles of road. Approximately 11 miles are located on Federal lands and approximately 25 miles on private and state.
