The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will resurface U.S. Route 89 in Utah County from State Route 6 (Thistle turnoff) to Birdseye. The project objectives are aimed at preserving the life of the roadway. The paving process will help increase the longevity of the road surface, address roadway defects and enhance motorist safety by providing good skid resistance for vehicles. Additionally, a new guardrail will be installed and a culvert repaired.
