The Construction Project on US-89 has officially begun

The initial phase includes removing and replacing Pedestrian Ramps at various intersections along US-89. Please be cautious and courteous while driving through the work zone.

Looking Ahead

Starting on May 30th construction crews will begin rotomilling (removing) the top 1.5 inches of the road surface. This work will start at 1600 North and head South. After the rotomilling is complete, crews will overlay the freshly ground road with 2 inches of new asphalt.During this time, travel along portions of the road will be limited to a single lane with Flaggers directing traffic. Be prepared for delays of up to 15 minutes if you are traveling through the construction zone during working hours.

Keep in Mind

The contractor will maintain access to properties and side streets throughout the project. If your access is directly adjacent to US-89 you may experience temporary loss of access due to construction directly in front of your property. You will be notified before the contractor begins this work.The segment between 1600 N and 3000 S is expected to be completed by mid-June, with the southern end to be completed by fall of 2018One lane of traffic in each direction will remain open in most areas along SR-89 with traffic controls in place continuously.
Some areas will be restricted to a single lane with flaggers directing traffic during working hours. If you would like to receive updated information, please send a request to our project e-mail at: 3locations@utah.gov

Reminders

• Normal working hours will be 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., Monday – Saturday.
• Traffic may be restricted to a single lane.
• Expect noise, dust, pedestrian detours and inconvenience. There will be times of restricted access during construction.

Please make sure that you follow city code on your pressurized irrigation connection.  If you have connected or are planning on connecting to the pressurized irrigation system, be aware that you are required to have your connection inspected prior to use.  The city requires that each user provides and installs a valve independent of the city’s shut off valve that the user can control the pressurized irrigation to their premises. It is against city code for a person to tamper with or operate the city’s shut off valve. (Mapleton City Code Section 13.30.090).

Also, be aware that a cross connection between the pressurized irrigation system and the culinary water system is a violation of State and Municipal Code (Mapleton City Code Section 13.30, Class B misdemeanor). Connection to a secondary water source, such as pressurized irrigation, requires a physical air gap, not just a valve between the secondary and culinary systems. As part of our Cross-Connection Program, and for public awareness, we do periodic checks on the system. If you have any questions regarding your valve or connection you can find more information at www.mapleton.org under Public Works or contact the Public Works Department at 801-489-6253.
