Pavement repair has begun on Mormon Trek Boulevard between Prairie Meadow Drive and Hawkeye Park Road. Mormon Trek Boulevard is reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction and in addition, it will be necessary to periodically close the open lane of traffic to load the broken pavement into dump trucks due to site constraints. The open lane will be closed to traffic for short durations to minimize disruption to traffic. This process will continue during the removal of concrete from each of the four lanes of traffic. It is anticipated that normal traffic will resume by Friday, July 10.
Motorists are to take note of this construction and to seek another route during this time period or allow extra travel time as delays will be experienced. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
