Road construction to improve Village Boulevard is underway in Stansbury Park, with an anticipated completion date in September.
On Tuesday morning, construction equipment was parked in the center of Village Boulevard, with traffic flowing in both directions. The project, with a construction cost of $830,083, will install a storm drain line, repair curb and gutter along the road and add safety features including American with Disabilities Act-compliant ramps.
The scope of the project also includes removing 3 inches of existing asphalt, regrading the existing road base and placing 5 inches of new asphalt, according to Tooele County Road Department director Rod Thompson. The road surface will be restriped, with a bike lane added.
Construction is between the intersections of Aberdeen and Stallion Ways to state Route 36, a stretch of approximately 3,500 feet. The project will be completed in stages to reduce delays, according to Thompson, and businesses along Village Boulevard will remain open during construction.
With delays expected during construction, motorists should find alternate routes, Thompson said.
Another road construction project, a repaving project on SR-36, began on July 5. The project is expected to involve 15 miles of road between the junction of state Route 73 and one-mile north of the Pony Express Trail.
