HURRICANE – Ongoing road construction on state Route 9 will impact drivers in downtown Hurricane and those on their way to Zion National Park.

Weekly meetings will be held during the construction project to help inform affected motorists and residents, according to information from the Utah Department of Transportation.

The project will reconstruct S.R. 9, which is also State Street in Hurricane, from 300 West to 700 West.

During the project, UDOT will replace deteriorated pavement, install new water meters, and update pedestrian crossings to the latest standards.

Fiber optic communications will be added between traffic signals, the storm drain system will be upgraded and some driveways, sidewalks, curbs and gutters will be repaired.

Storm drain installation and utility relocations at the intersection of SR 9 and 700 West will be done primarily at night between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. Eastbound SR 9 will have some lane restrictions near the intersection at this time.

Beginning July 20, weekly meetings will be held with construction partners; the meetings are open to the public and upcoming construction activities, schedules and other project issues will be discussed.

The meetings will be held Wednesdays at 11 a.m. in the Hurricane City Council Chambers, 147 N. 870 West in Hurricane.

For current information about traffic impacts, detours and work schedules, see UDOT’s project website, or see the interactive project map for information or to leave comments about specific locations.

The project team can be contacted by phone at 435-216-9511 or by email.
