There’s more road construction in the forecast for Northern Utah. On June 23, the Utah Department of Transportation will begin major work on US Hwy 89/91 in what is popularly known as Sardine Canyon.  Crews will be resurfacing the road from Sardine Summit to State Road 23 in Wellsville.

A stretch of Sardine Canyon will be resurfaced beginning June 23.

UDOT spokesman Vic Saunders says the project will last through the summer, with a completion date set for September.

Crews will also be replacing roadside delineator posts, and will install rumble strips to improve safety. In addition, the park-and-ride lot in Wellsville will be repaved June 29-30, July 6-7 and July 27-28 during which no parking will be allowed.

Saunders says drivers can expect single-lane travel through the project area, and says delays can be expected. If time is critical, UDOT recommends drivers use Valley View Highway to get to and from Cache Valley.
