Improvements to State Road 193 and the traffic pattern at the intersection of South Gate Drive will mean construction through June.
The Utah Department of Transportation is removing the old road surface and repaving SR 193 from the Hill Field Road/South Gate Drive intersection west to the intersection of State Street in Clearfield. Traffic signals in the area will be upgraded, and pedestrian ramps will be installed to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
Along with the repaving, workers will complete a major reconstruction of the South Gate Drive intersection. When finished, there will be two dedicated lefthand turn lanes into Hill AFB, both eastbound and westbound from 193.
The westbound merge lane onto 193 from South Gate drive will also be widened and lengthened to allow more traffic to flow off base during peak hours.
Although construction is scheduled to take place at night and on the weekends, there may be some need to adjust traffic patterns at certain times. Project officers are asking drivers for additional caution and courtesy during the construction.
