CITY OF CEDAR – Similar to the closures three months ago, Interstate 15 is expected to be closed between exits 59 and 62 in Cedar City for successive nights as part of the bridge installation phase of the Coal Creek Road Improvement Project from the Utah Department of Transportation.
Although a Cedar City Corporation Facebook post earlier this week indicated that the closures would take place next week (September 21-23), the city released a revised announcement Friday that said the closures have been postponed and are now expected. take place on September 21. 27-28.
UDOT is expected to close I-15 between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night, with the second night closing ending on the morning of Wednesday, September 29. The south side of the highway will be closed the first night, with the north side being closed the second night, the same as in June when the old bridge was demolished.
Once again, traffic will be diverted through the city between exits 59 and 62. Signs will guide drivers along designated detours on Airport Road, Old Fort Road, Main Street and 200 North. See the map below for more details.
The overall project, as detailed previously by Cedar City News, is expected to be completed by the end of the year, according to UDOT.
Those with questions or concerns regarding the Coal Creek Project can contact the UDOT Team Hotline by phone at 435-417-9417 or by email.
