SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County is beginning work on Emigration Canyon Road. The roadwork is expected to continue through the summer.
The work is intended to improve safety conditions by creating shoulders to keep rock slides out of bike lanes. The slope stabilization project will include clearing debris from roadside ditches to create catch-basins that will contain gravel and soils that slide downhill from unstable uphill areas.
The work will not immediately call for major traffic control; however, as the project continues, travelers will see temporary delays and traffic redirection.
The Emigration Canyon safety improvements are made possible by $250,000 set aside for the project in the county’s 2012 budget.
