The SR-39; Huntsville to Causey Project includes installation of several drainage culverts, asphalt pavement overlays in several areas, shoulder grading and application of a chip seal (an oil-sealed gravel chip surface which will seal the pavement from moisture and extend its life).
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises motorists of a roadway improvement project beginning July 8, on state Road 39, the Monte Cristo Highway, between the 100 South (Main Street) junction in Huntsville (milepost 19.32) and the Causey Reservoir turn-off (milepost 27.72). This project resurfaces the entire roadway from shoulder to shoulder by adding a layer of oil and then a layer of chips to prolong the life of the pavement.
For all phases of work, motorists should expect multiple flagging operations and up to 10-minute travel delays where work is occurring on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Fridays, lane restrictions will end by noon to facilitate area recreational travel.
The work will be conducted according to the following *tentative schedule:
- Week of July 8 – culvert installation
- Week of July 14 – asphalt paving, shoulder grading and gravel chip placement
- Week of July 21 – sealing of chip seal surface (no work is planned July 24 in observance of
- the Pioneer Day holiday)
- Week of July 28 – lane striping
A concurrent chip seal project will be completed by the same contractor on 100 South (Main Street) in Huntsville between the SR-39 junction and Huntsville Cemetery. For more information on this project, contact Huntsville Town offices at 801-745-3420.
