Springdale will host a Meet the Contractor Open House at the Canyon Community Center Oct. 3 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Attendees will be able to meet the people from Sunroc doing the work on State Route 9 and learn about their plans to phase the project, what their anticipated schedule is, and where work will begin first.
The Utah Department of Transportation awarded the SR-9 Renewed project to Sunroc Corporation. Construction is scheduled to begin Oct. 16 and finish by April 15, 2018.
The Springdale project includes the following improvements and is expected to begin construction towards the end of 2017:
—Roadway reconstruction. Reconstruction is when the roadway is excavated down to native ground and rebuilt. This provides an entirely new roadway section.
—Evaluation of drainage systems, pedestrian facilities, and irrigation ditches to determine if improvements should be included with this project.
Canyon Community Center is located at 126 Lion Blvd. in Springdale. More information is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
