Traffic on I-80 from Wanship to Coalville in Summit County will be restricted beginning April 18, according to the Utah Department of Transportation.

The $3.4 million, six-month-long project involves resurfacing, safety modifications and structure rehabilitation on an eight-mile section of highway and will necessitate restricting traffic on both sides of the interstate to only one lane over three structures and a 15-foot maximum width restriction.Vehicles more than 15 feet wide will be detoured to old U.S. 189 between Wanship and Echo Junction.

The project includes removing asphalt pavement from the bridge decks and replacing it with a new layer of pavement for a smoother ride and resurfacing the eight miles of highway.

Another similar project will be done this summer on I-84 from the Morgan-Summit county line to Echo Junction.
