Road Construction - Hwy 89 & Harrison Blvd.
Utah Department of Transportation Road Project
Highway 89 and Harrison Boulevard
Regarding the road construction in the area of Highway 89 and Harrison Boulevard, please be advised that this is a state project on state roadways. Since the state, and the state only, has jurisdiction and authority over these roadways and the construction project, unfortunately there is nothing the South Ogden Police Department or South Ogden City administration can do about the traffic congestion. We ask that you use alternate routes whenever possible. Please exercise patience, plan ahead, and anticipate lengthy delays while traveling through the construction zones. We realize this has been an extremely inconvenient road project and we look forward to its completion.
For anyone wishing to make a complaint, please contact the UDOT complaint line at: 1-800-292-3557. For further questions or details, you can visit a direct link to their website regarding this project by clicking here.
We will post updates about the project as we receive them from UDOT (see below).
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
UDOT UPDATE - 7/2
SPECIAL TRAFFIC ADVISORY FOR
SKYLINE DRIVE AT US-89
CHANGE IN TRAFFIC PATTERN BEGINS
SUNDAY, JULY 5 THROUGH MID-AUGUST
A significant design element of the US-89 and Harrison Boulevard project includes the installation of an underground pedestrian tunnel east of Skyline Drive. This work requires narrowed traffic lanes, traffic shifts, and lane closures.
Beginning Sunday night, July 5, ALL LEFT TURN MOVEMENTS will be temporarily eliminated at the Skyline Drive and US-89 Intersection. To help alleviate congestion, 1550 East will be fully operational, including a temporary left-turn light on westbound US-89 to accommodate left hand turns at 1550 East. UDOT recommends the following detours:
A - US-89 Westbound (Walmart) - Proceed through Skyline Drive to 1550 East, turn left at 1550 East
B - US-89 Eastbound (to Chevron) - Turn right onto 1550 East and proceed left on Skyline Drive
C - Skyline Drive (from Chevron) to access Southbound US-89 - Cross US-89 to 1550 East, turn right to US-89, turn right at US-89 or use Wasatch Dr.
D - Skyline Drive (from Walmart) to access Northbound US-89 - Continue across US-89 to Wasatch Drive, then left onto 5600 South, continue to Harrison Blvd.
Please expect delays while this traffic pattern is in place. Emergency Services have been notified of this traffic pattern.
It is anticipated this detour will be in effect through Mid-August.
UDOT has established a project-dedicated public involvement team for this project. You can learn more or ask questions using the information below.
