Roadway Closure Extended
The closure of 1400 North (S.R. 75) between 1750 West and Mountain Springs Parkway has been extended until further notice.
As crews were making additional repairs, it was discovered that sections of rebar had deteriorated more severely than originally thought, which threatens the structural integrity of the bridge deck.
As a result, UDOT’s Structure Division has determined that the area of the bridge deck over the rail lines to the east abutment needs to be replaced.
Safety of the traveling public is UDOT’s highest priority, and we feel it important to ensure the bridge is safe for travel. We would not take this step if we didn’t feel it was absolutely necessary.
We are currently working through the details, and will provide more information on the schedule as it becomes available.
Detour signs will continue to be posted to help drivers safely navigate the area.
To avoid delays, please plan ahead for an alternate route to your destinations. Motorists will be able to use the Springville 400 South exit or Provo University Avenue/1860 South exit to U.S. 89 (State Street) as possible alternates.
For your own safety, other drivers, and the workers; please slow down and be careful to observe traffic signs, cones, workers, and equipment within the work zones.
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will be performing work to the bridges passing over the railroad tracks near 450 West and 1500 West on S.R. 75 (1400 North) in order to improve the roadway and extend the life of the bridges. This work will be done in three stages beginning with the bridge near 450 West, then the bridge near 1500 West, and followed by a thin pavement overlay to the entire road surface.
