Passing Lanes and Utahraptor State Park Access

The Utah Department of Transportation(UDOT) continues operations to widen the roadway along a four-mile section adjacent to the Utahraptor State Park access point. Objectives include the installation of a northbound and southbound passing lane, and various access enhancements near the park entrance. These improvements include a paved entry into the new park entrance, a northbound right-turn deceleration lane into the park, a northbound right-turn acceleration lane out of the park, and a southbound left-turn lane into the park. These additions are designed to improve visitor access by decreasing motorist congestion and increasing motorist safety. 


Route:  US-191 |  Start Milepost: 138.6 -  End Milepost: 142.3


Anticipated Impacts

Expect lane closures during nighttime operations with one-way alternating traffic regulated by temporary traffic signals and a pilot car. Speeds will be reduced to 55mph approaching work zones. Travelers should expect moderate delays ranging from 10 - 15 minutes. Intersection access within the project route may be restricted intermittently for construction. Please follow the traffic light signals accordingly to ensure the safety of both yourself and our construction crew. Be cautious and slow down near construction barrels and cones. All lanes will remain open during daytime hours, weekends and holidays.

Lane Restriction is 14ft. during construction hours.  Please contact hotline if special accomodations are necessary.
