This Week's Construction Activity
Finish items are reviewed each day to repair landscaping, check traffic systems, install signs and restore any areas affected by the construction. If you have a concern, please contact the Public Involvement Team associated with the project at 800.253.8946 or 801.663.1711 to have your issues reviewed. Crews will systematically investigate these items before the end of construction.
With the continued acceleration of the project, crews will be working from 6 am to 11 pm as allowed in the contract.
Curbside parking is allowed where new striping indicates room for such parking. Motorists parked where on-street parking is not allowed will be ticketed. A safe workplace is our number one goal, and your help is appreciated!
