​Location

US 51, between Iron Street and US 2 in Hurley, Iron County

Overview

The project includes removing the existing asphalt pavement and replacing with new hot mix asphalt.  The existing curb & gutter will be replaced.  Curb ramps will be reconstructed to meet ADA standards to the maximum extent practical.

Traffic Impacts

During construction, US 51 will remain open to through traffic, but may be limited to one lane during daytime with the use of flaggers.  Parking lanes along US 51 will be closed during replacement of curb & gutter.  Staged sidewalk closures and/or pedestrian detours will also be necessary during curb ramp construction.
