UDOT Begins North Moab Pavement Preservation


The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will resurface the pavement on U.S. 191 in North Moab through the month of October.


To ensure preservation of the pavement from Cermak Street north to the Colorado River Bridge prior to winter, and to reduce noise impacts to adjacent businesses during the evening, construction will require the closure of a single lane of traffic during the daytime.

Roadwork and restrictions will begin Monday morning October 10th. Road users should anticipate construction from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and prepare for delays.

In addition to preserving the pavement between downtown Moab and the bridge, the project will also accommodate modification of the intersection at the junction of state Route 128.

Structural and earth work associated with roadway widening north of the bridge and bicycle trail construction adjacent to the road can be expected during the winter months. The project’s final pavement layer will be applied in Mid-April 2012.

Commuters and local workplaces interested in helping to alleviate congestion can explore travel strategies online at travelwise.utah.gov.
