Antelope Drive related work to close US-89 lanes Wednesday to Friday

Article Published 10/29/2014

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists that one lane will be closed in each direction on US-89 in East Layton, from Wednesday night, Oct. 29 through Friday morning, Oct. 31 to facilitate work related to the opening of Antelope Drive at that location.

Beginning Wednesday evening, crews will reduce traffic on US-89 to one lane in both north and south directions, from approximately SR-193 to Cherry Lane.  This work will facilitate the final work to complete and open the extension of Antelope Drive, from Oak Forest Drive to its new intersection with US-89.  These lanes will be in this configuration through Friday morning. 

The closed lanes will change throughout the night and day as crews work to remove islands and the signal at Sunset Lane, remove and repaint roadway striping, construct curbing, and activate the new signal at the new Antelope Drive intersection.  Because of this necessary work to complete this project, traffic slowdowns and heavy congestion should be expected during peak traffic times through this section on US-89.  Motorists with time-sensitive travel are encouraged to leave as much as 20 minutes earlier than their normal departure times, or use alternate routes such as I-15 to avoid delays.  

-Motorists or property owners with questions, concerns, or seeking updates about the Antelope Drive Extension project, should contact the project team via the hotline at 800-292-3557.
