Width and height restrictions are in effect along the two-mile stretch of Highway 191 currently under construction between 400 North and the Colorado River bridge. There is a 13-foot lane width restriction and a 16-foot height restriction along the project. Wide loads exceeding these restrictions will not be able to pass through the project.
New signal lights at 500 West are now in operation, and crews on Monday closed down left-turn movements from northbound Highway 191 onto 500 West while crews dug a trench for storm drain pipeline installation. Left-turn movements will not resume until the trench is filled in.
The 60-inch-diameter storm drain will continue to be installed from 500 West to Cermak Street, where it veers to the east. New paving of shoulders continued on the east side of the highway as part of the widening efforts.
This week, crews have or will work on the retaining wall from the Colorado River to Rubicon Trails road. Shoulder work continues from Rubicon Trails to 500 West.
Starting next week, northbound traffic will shift onto the new pavement in the area near Hyatt Place Moab.
The contractor is also working along the west side of the highway in this area to improve the shoulder and prepare the area for installation of concrete curb and gutter.
