ROUNDABOUT CONSTRUCTION NOTICE

Project Update - May 7, 2021

 

Roundabout Construction Continues:

The Utah Department of Transportation is constructing a new roundabout at the intersection of S.R. 12 and S.R. 63 in Bryce Canyon City.  The project is part of UDOT's effort to improve driver safety through reduced speeds, traffic calming, improved visibility, and navigation improvements.  See Traffic Impacts below…

 

SR12 Pavement Rehabilitation Continues:

The asphalt repaving continues from the roundabout Eastward along S.R 12 toward Henrieville.  See travel impacts below…

 

SR63 Pavement Roto-milling through Bryce Canyon City Begins:

A 3-inch layer of pavement will be removed from the roundabout Southward to the Bryce Canyon National Park sign.  The pavement will be removed in sections to enable traffic to be maintained in both directions.  Access to local businesses and property will be maintained.

 

Schedule

Approx. Completion Date:  Late September 2021

Work Hours:   7am - Sunset (Mon-Fri)

*Schedules are subject to change due to weather and materials available.

 

Latest Traffic Impacts:

·        Travel delays through the construction area(s) can be expected to be up to 20 minutes

Roundabout Area>   Traffic controls will be in place with appropriate signage, flaggers and rumble strips to alert approaching drivers. Contractors will maintain access to nearby business.  Drivers should be prepared to travel over dirt, as asphalt has been removed from large portions of the project area.

 

Pavement Rehabilitation (S.R 12 / S.R. 63 Roundabout to Henrieville)>   Starting at approximately 8-9am each morning, be prepared to stop for flaggers as alternating one-way traffic will be maintained in 2 mile increments.  A pilot car will be utilized to escort traffic past the construction area.

 

6.R. 63 Pavement Roto-millling>  Flaggers will be utilized to manage traffic where lane/shoulder space is limited.  Otherwise, much of the roto-milling stretch will enable ample space for two-way traffic past the construction area.
