Work is nearly done on Hwy. 128

Work is winding down on the Highway 128 paving project. Crews continue to apply the final layer of asphalt. The roadwork that remains to be completed is all north of Dewey Bridge and working towards I-70, according to Utah Department of Transportation.

Crews will also be doing some pipe work on Monday and Tuesday near milepost 33.

Traffic in the active construction zones will be restricted to a single lane with one-way traffic directed by flaggers and led by a pilot car. These traffic controls will extend until early October.

The multi-million-dollar project involved sections of the highway from milepost 21 to Interstate 70 receiving an asphalt overlay to fill in ruts (lane leveling), and shoulders were widened along the road. Some pullouts were paved for better access onto the highway from the river.

After the lane leveling was done, the road received a new asphalt surface. In addition, some work to culverts for improved drainage took place. Crews also installed some cattle guards and guardrails in selected areas of the roadway.
