Impacts to US 89
Intermittent daytime lane closures during off-peak hours can be expectred in either direction on US 89 throughout the project duration while crews complete work items like barrier, wall panels and paint restriping.
Northbound US89 Off-Ramp to Shepard Lane Closed Monday Night
The off-ramp from northbound US89 to Shepard Lane will be closed Tuesday, July 12 from 9:00 pm until Wednesday, July 13 at 5:00 am while crews remove and replace overhead signs. Use the Park Lane or Main Street exit as an alternate route.
US89 Reduced to One Lane in Each Direction Near Main Street Nightly
As early as July 10, US89 will be reduced to one lane in each direction nightly near Main Street in Farmington through approximately July 19 while crews remove and replace overhead signs.
Northbound US89 On-Ramp from Main Street to Close for 6 Weeks
In mid- or late July, the northbound US89 on-ramp from Main Street will close for up to 6 weeks for reconstruction. Motorists can access northbound US89 via the 400 North interchange or Park Lane.
Southbound US89 On-Ramp from Main Street: Lanes are narrowed and the merge length reduced on this ramp while crews install storm drain and prepare to widen it.
Northbound Frontage Road, Shepard Lane to Main Street
The US89 project will build a connection from the northbound frontage road by the Foxglove Shopping Center to the northbound US89 off-ramp to Main Street, providing new direct access to Main Street from Shepard Lane in Farmington.
US89 Resurfacing Project; Main Street to Shepard Lane:
UDOT will be resurfacing US89 from approximately a half-mile north of Main Street to approximately a quarter-mile north of SHepard Lane in Farmington with work anticipated to begin in late July. Drivers can expect off-peak lane restrictions and traffic shifts in both directions when this work begins.
Bair Creek: West of US89, crews are actively working to construct a small dam to support a detention pond that will slow flood waters downstream in the event of a large-scale rain event.
