Current Uintah Basin UDOT Projects
By Kristin Forbis, Oct 11, 2021
Staying safe on Uintah Basin roads is a top priority. Road construction season may be close to an end but isn’t quite here. Of course the Starvation Bridge repair project continues with crews placing the final driving surface and doing clean up work. Crews are resurfacing a 5 mile section of Highway 40 east of Gusher to the junction of State Route 88 to preserve the life of the Highway. Crews will work as long as they can and then final paving is scheduled for spring 2022. From mile post zero to 28, SR44 is receiving some upgrades including guardrail, concrete barrier, and no passing signs. Work is expected to be done by the end of the month. Finally, SR 87 and Highway 40 pavement repairs in Duchesne are expected to run until late November. During construction, motorists can expect one-way traffic and delays.
