This U.S. 191 road widening and Storm Drain project extends from 400 North to the Colorado River Bridge. It will reconstruct the existing roadway to accommodate five lanes of traffic, two thru lanes in each direction with a two way left turn lane and 6-foot shoulders. For most of the project there will be a center turn lane. Where we cannot provide a center turn lane, there will be two lanes in each direction with a painted double yellow line separating traffic.
The project will also add curb, gutter, and sidewalk on the west side of US-191 from Motel 6 to the Colorado Bridge. In addition, UDOT has partnered with Moab City to construct a Storm Drainage System to address storm water from rain events starting at the Stewart Canyon area, above Cermak Drive. The system will collect storm water from Stewart Canyon, US-191 and adjacent properties, depositing the water in a collection pond west of the intersection at 500 West and US-191.
