Like Déjà Vu all over again, the canyon will be paved again this week.
Here are the details:
Change to Ogden Canyon Paving Scheduled for June 19-23
Scheduled total closure will now be from 8 p.m. on Saturday night through 8 p.m. on Sunday
Ogden -- The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists that a short duration paving project will begin on state Road 39 in Ogden Canyon beginning June 19.
From Thursday night, June 19 through Tuesday morning, June 24, crews will be paving a section of SR-39, the Ogden Canyon Highway, from the Indian Trail near the mouth of the canyon to the Alaskan Inn. This paving is a part of the final phase of work related to last summer’s Ogden City Water Line project through Ogden Canyon.
This work will be conducted according to the following schedule:
· Thursday June 19, to Friday June 20, one lane will be closed in the canyon with alternating traffic directed by flaggers from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., as crew’s lower utility accesses and make preparations for the paving work.
· From 8 p.m. on Saturday night June 21, to 8 p.m. on Sunday night June 22, pavement removal and paving operations will be accomplished, with a complete closure of SR-39 in the canyon. During this closures traffic must detour over alternate routes, such as SR-167, the Trappers Loop Highway via Interstate 84 through Weber Canyon, or via North Ogden Canyon Road, the so-called “North Ogden Divide.” Access will be maintained for canyon residents during this complete closure.
· Finally, on Monday night, June 23, one lane will be closed with alternating traffic directed by flaggers from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., as crews restore utility accesses to their pre-project levels.
Once this project is complete, a chip seal project will be conducted in late July to seal the roadway surface. Stakeholders with questions about this project can contact the project hotline at 801-419-9554.
