Bluff Street Construction Update

Construction has begun on the Bluff Street Corridor Project. We invite everyone to visit our booth at the Dixie Transportation Expo on Tuesday, February 13 at the Dixie Center. Planners, engineers and UDOT personnel will be available to answer questions and provide information. 

We remind the public all businesses along the corridor are open and accessible during construction. We encourage you to continue to patronize these businesses, be courteous to other drivers allowing them to merge into mainline traffic and be patient as you travel the corridor.  

This project is a four-fold undertaking and includes:

  • Upgrading and improving all utilities which are buried in the current roadway including storm drain, culinary water, sewer, fiber optics, gas, electrical and an upgraded Advanced Traffic Management System.

  • Increasing capacity by adding an additional northbound and southbound lane from 100 South to 1250 North through this heavily traveled section of roadway.

  • Reconfiguring the intersection at Sunset Boulevard and Bluff Street to improve safety, traffic flow and handle projected traffic increases.

  • Adding a dedicated right turn lane from westbound St George Boulevard to northbound Bluff Street which will improve safety and mobility.

Current Project Schedule:

Work continues on the corridor to adjust traffic signals, restripe lanes, lower manholes and water valves to facilitate a shift in traffic patterns. In the next couple of days all traffic traveling through the construction zone will be switched to the East side of Bluff Street with one lane in each direction and a center turn lane. 

January 15-20: Crews will start to remove the current asphalt surface on the Southbound lanes of Bluff Street with rotomiling from 100 South to 1250 North. After the asphalt has been removed accesses to properties and roads on the West side of Bluff Street in this area will be a compacted and milled asphalt until all utility improvements have been completed.

Utility staff will start the process of removing and replacing the existing storm drain and gas line beginning at 100 South. 

Crews will be working each day, Monday through Friday, from about 7:30 am to 5:00 pm. Expect intermittent nighttime work and weekend work throughout the project. Additional shifts will be added as conditions permit.  

We invite you to review this website thoroughly, as it contains a lot of valuable information which will help you stay informed prior to and during construction.
