The state has a new hotline for motorists with questions about road construction.
Drivers in the Salt Lake area can dial 964-6000 for updates on area Utah Department of Transportation highway projects. Those outside the region can dial 1-800-492-2400."The recording will offer information about the nature of the projects, work schedules, and how traffic is being routed through the work sites," said a UDOT news release.
The number is the same line used in winter for information on weather conditions. It will serve as a construction-update line from April through October; from November through March it will remain a weather-information line.
