SR-36 construction project to run through summer

A project to improve state Route 36 between 3 O’Clock Drive in Tooele City to the junction with state Route 73 began on Monday. 

The project will include 4 miles of widening the roadway, with pipe extensions installed within the widening area, according to the Utah Department of Transportation. A total of 10 miles of asphalt will be milled and paved along the stretch of road. 

The road construction work is scheduled to run throughout the summer, with completion in August, but all work is weather dependent, according to UDOT. 

Different assets of the project will be completed during the duration, UDOT said. Work to lower utilities for the project is expected to begin Wednesday, with concrete work and excavation set to begin Thursday and run through the middle of June. 

Work on a drainage pipe in the construction area is scheduled to start on June 23.

During road construction, motorists will need to be prepared for intermittent lane and shoulder closures, according to UDOT.
