89The Utah Department of Transportation is beginning road preservation work for a 10 mile stretch on U.S Highway 89 beginning at the Arizona-Utah line. The entire project has a 60 day time frame.

According to Kevin Kitchen with UDOT Communications, bridge deck repairs will take approximately 3 weeks to complete.  Drivers will encounter a temporary signal light and concrete barriers during these repairs.

For the first few days crews will work to level lanes and will then cut rumble strips into the road to increase safety. This will be followed by a chip seal to preserve the life of the road. Drivers can anticipate flaggers and pilot cars with traffic delays of less than 15 minutes, although locals are already reporting longer delays. Make sure you give yourself some extra time due to the construction.
