Work on U.S. Route 191 (Moab’s Main Street) from 200 North to 300 South began Monday, Dec. 4, with work consisting primarily of saw cutting, removing and replacing cracked or damaged sections of concrete within the street. Areas under repair will be closed to traffic for up to two weeks while the concrete cures. This portion of work on the highway is scheduled to be complete before Christmas Day.

The work will continue in January with concrete grinding of the pavement surface to smooth the ride. Traffic within the work zone will be reduced to one lane in each direction. As work along the highway crosses side streets, they will be temporarily closed to traffic. The work will also extend a short distance into the side streets. Detours will be provided during these side street closures, with access to residences and businesses maintained.

Crews will also perform work on the bridge over Mill Creek. This structure has old asphalt, which will be removed. The substructure will be patched and repaired with new concrete decking placed on the bridge. During the construction period students should use the pedestrian pathway under the Mill Creek Bridge to cross the highway. This work is expected to last through February 2018.

Parking within the traffic-controlled work zone is not permitted.
