UDOT planning 3 projects in Layton this year
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has three projects scheduled in Layton City this year, although there are no specific starting dates yet:
-The largest project, estimated at $6.1 million, involve modifying 0.75 of a mile of Hill Field Road starting at the Main Street junction and going northeast to the east side of the Layton Hills Mall.
See the Layton Improved web site:http://www.udot.utah.gov/LaytonImproved/
The goal is to relieve traffic congestion.
There will be “ThrU” turns installed at the intersections of Hill Field and Main (west side) and Hill Field and Gordon Avenue (east side). Left turn and through access at the mall (at Gordon Ave) will be restricted as well.
Traffic from the Mall will be spread across the other access points, aiding in the elimination of congestion so close to the interstate. An additional left turn lane will be added to the NB to WB turn lanes at Gordon Avenue and Main Street on the west side. An additional lane will be added under the I-15 structures in each direction.
-The second UDOT project in Layton is bridge work, pavement overlays and lane widening on State Road 108 (Antelope Drive), from 1000 West to State Road 126 (Main Street).
See the Layton Improved web site at:http://www.udot.utah.gov/LaytonImproved/
This work will cost $1.4 million and will expand the lifetime of the bridge deck and pavement in the area.
-The third project will be installing a traffic signal at State Road 193 and 1700 East.
This will be constructed in 2015. Cost of the project is $250,000.
