Federal Lands Access Program:
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) are working together to bring roadway improvements to SR-149 between US-40 and the entrance to Dinosaur National Monument. These improvements include widening travel lanes, improving shoulder width, and replacing the Brush Creek Bridge.
The FHWA and UDOT started work on the SR-149 Road Improvement Project in January 2018.
Project Quick Facts
• Project Length: 4.2 miles
• Widen travel lanes to 12 feet wide in each direction
• Add roadway shoulders
• Replace the Brush Creek Bridge
• Roadway improvements will enhance safety for drivers and cyclists, improve mobility, and improve the condition of the road surface
The funding for this project comes from a federal program called the Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP). The goal of this program is to provide access to federal lands for all modes of transportation. Because FLAP funds can only be used for improving access to federal lands, this project did not take away funding from other projects in the area.
