Ogden Canyon Waterline Project Update

We apologize in advance for the length of this update, but there is a lot going on with the project right now and we want everyone to be as informed as possible.

First, SR-39 in Ogden Canyon will be closed to all through traffic tonight beginning at 10:00pm until 6:00am Saturday morning, and again on Saturday night, beginning at 10:00pm until 6:00am on Sunday morning, in order to install permanent asphalt in the fourth (and final) phase of construction.  During the hours listed above, all Canyon residents living west of Phase 4 (approximate address: 600 Ogden Canyon) can access their homes from the west (bottom of the canyon).  All canyon residents living in the fourth phase of construction will be able to access their homes during the closure, but there may be longer than usual delays because of the location of the large equipment.  Please keep this in mind as you plan your evening travels.

Also, there were some issues encountered during the last few days stemming in large part from the high demand related to the unseasonably high temperatures.  As such, the upper (and final) connection was not completed during the roaming shutdowns.  Because of the issues the contractor has encountered lately with the temporary water, we would like to complete this connection sooner, rather than later.  In order to complete this connection, another water shutoff will be necessary.  This temporary water shutoff will only impact those residents living in the third and fourth phases of construction, and is scheduled for Sunday night, beginning at 9:00pm and will be in effect for approximately 8 hours.  Water should be restored by 5:00am on Monday morning.  If your water is not restored by then, please let us know so that we can resolve any issues quickly.  This will be the final shutoff of the entire project.

Also on Sunday night, the contractor will move the traffic control back down to the mouth of the canyon to begin removing the old temporary asphalt section and replacing it with 8 inches of permanent asphalt.  The contractor anticipates that approximately 2,500 lineal feet of asphalt will be removed and replaced before the 4th of July weekend.  The rest will be completed after the 4th of July weekend.

Lastly, beginning at 5:00am on July 4th, the traffic control will be removed and both lanes of traffic will be open to accommodate holiday travel.  Both lanes will remain open until 9:00pm on July 7th, at which time the lane restrictions and delays will resume. 

Thank you for taking the time to read through this update.  If you have any questions or concerns about this closure or any other aspect of the project, please let me know.

Best regards,

Jason M. Allen, P.E. Public Involvement
