Decades in the Making, UDOT’s Reconstruction of U.S. 89 Begins in Earnest This WeekAuthor/Presenter: Shaw, Mitch
After decades of study and preparation, work on the transportation department’s massive reconstruction of U.S. 89 in Davis and Weber counties is scheduled to start this week. The state will implement strict social distancing measures, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The department has reduced or eliminated in-person meetings at construction sites, discouraged carpools and shared vehicle use and made it mandatory to wipe down tools and disinfect surfaces in vehicles. Managers will monitor compliance at construction sites and in offices.
