HONEYVILLE, Box Elder County — Construction crews on Monday will begin widening state Route 240 between 3600 West and the frontage road east of I-15 in preparation for a new bridge over the freeway.
According the Utah Department of Transportation, work on replacing the bridge will begin once the road had been widened sometime in mid-November. At that time the existing bridge will be demolished and the new bridge will be built during the winter months. Traffic on S.R. 240 at I-15 will be closed at that time until April 2018.
Until that closure, traffic over I-15 on the present structure will be reduced to one lane 24 hours per day, with traffic movements governed by traffic signals at both ends of the bridge. Motorists should only proceed as directed by the signal.
Some congestion may exist during peak traffic times, so motorists should consider alternate routes, such as S.R. 13 at Elwood, and S.R. 37 to S.R. 13 in Brigham City. Motorists traveling across the single-lane bridge should be aware of workers and equipment in the closed area adjacent to the open lane.
