Construction on SR 113 to Wrap Up Wednesday or Thursday
Light construction work on State Route 113 between Midway and Charleston will reduce traffic to one lane today and possibly tomorrow.
The Utah Department of Transportation says the job is to improve road smoothness. Crews are also installing fencing.
This will finish work that began last year and should only last a day or two.
“This is actually just wrap up work that was for the most part completed last year," said Geoff Dupais, a spokesperson for UDOT. "The contractor just needed to come back and do some of this final wrap-up work on 113. We have the special equipment that goes down and it grinds off any rough patches on the roadway, and then we seal it up.”
Construction was scheduled to begin today at 8 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m. and will resume tomorrow morning, if necessary.
The construction zone will begin at Midway Main Street and extend to U.S. Highway 189 south of Charleston. Road crews will be stationed at different parts of the stretch of Highway 113 under renovation throughout the day.
Drivers can expect delays and one-way flagging. No parking is allowed while the zone is under construction.
Dupais says the UDOT traffic app is always a good tool to check for regular updates on construction projects and all Utah roadways.
