Spanish Fork Main Street rehabilitation beginning May 9
Beginning May 9, the Utah Department of Transportation will begin rehabilitation work on Main Street in Spanish Fork. This work is part of a larger project that will see roads in both Spanish Fork and Mapleton repaved and resurfaced during the summer. The Spanish Fork Main Street work beginning in May will include the following:
• Reconstructing existing pedestrian ramps from 300 South to 1000 North
• Add second northbound right turn lane from Main Street to 1000 North
• Curb and gutter work at 10th North and Main Street
• Replacing the storm drain between 800 and 900 North along northbound lanes
• Reconstructing driveway approaches between 500 and 600 North
• Replacing one and a half inches of asphalt from 300 South to 1000 North
The work will consist of replacing one and a half inches of pavement from 1000 North to 300 South along Main Street and the addition of a second northbound right turn lane at 1000 North. In addition to replacing the roadway surface, crews will reconstruct existing pedestrian ramps throughout the project. Curb and gutter, storm drain and driveway approaches will be replaced or repaired at specific locations. During this project, on-street parking will be affected in the areas where crews are working. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained during business hours. There may be short delays when crews are removing or replacing pavement or trenching in front of driveway approaches. Spanish Fork’s Main Street between 300 South and the I-15 interchange is scheduled to be completely redone this summer by UDOT, with the old asphalt removed and new asphalt laid.
Spanish Fork’s 400 North is also scheduled to be torn up and repaved. This project will include all of 400 North in Spanish Fork and continue up the road east into Mapleton where it becomes 1600 South. In Mapleton, the resurfacing work will continue east on 1600 South to Main Street, where the work will turn north and Main Street from 1600 South to Maple Street will be repaved. In addition to these major projects, some roads in the Spanish Fork area will receive a new road surface over the top of the existing road. This will happen on US 6 between the I-15 interchange and the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon as well as on Spanish Fork’s Main Street south of 300 South to Arrowhead Trail Road. Also, Highway 77 through Lake Shore will be resurfaced.
To help the public stay informed about the work as the summer progresses, a public information team has been put together by UDOT to act as a consistent source of information for residents and businesses. This team will be sending out weekly emails to the public providing updates about construction and potential traffic delays. To sign up to receive the email, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-855-307-9363.
