This week, January 17, crews will continue to work under the bridge structure performing drilling activities and bridge demolition. The demolition work will mostly take place at night.
Team members will be removing existing asphalt, curb, and sidewalk from the Tagg-N-Go Carwash to the Virgin River Bridge. Utility relocations and storm drain system improvements will also take place within these limits.
The construction zone is from just north of the Riverside Drive intersection to south of the 1450 South intersection on River Road. Motorists are asked to:
obey all traffic control
stay in the designated lane of travel and
adhere to the speed limit.
Due to the amount of traffic in this area, teams will be working during the day and night. The project is expected to be finished by June 2021.
This project will upgrade the roadway and Virgin River bridge on River Road from Riverside Drive to 1450 South.
The designed improvements will:
- Create dual left turn lanes at the intersections of Northbound River Road and Riverside Drive and Southbound River Road at 1450 South
- Widen the bridge over the Virgin River to add an additional Southbound Lane
- Update adjacent utilities
- Improve the Virgin River Trail System
These upgrades will increase capacity, improve safety and enhance the trail system within the corridor.
Major construction will start in January 2021 with an estimated completion date of June 30, 2021*.
