Blasting work for U.S. 189 in Provo Canyon will mean delays ranging from 15 to 30 minutes, according to Larry Buss, project engineer for the Utah Department of Transportation.
"We're looking at delays up to 15 minutes before 1:30 p.m." Buss said. "After 1:30 to about 5 p.m. delays could be up to 30 minutes."Traffic needs to be stopped primarily for safety reasons. Delays will occur while road crews use explosives to remove material for the new construction of U.S. 189 in Provo Canyon.
