The City Council has approved a right-of-way contract with the Utah Department of Transportation to prepare the way for the installation of a traffic signal at U.S. 89 and Nicholls Road.

According to City manager Richard Marchant, UDOT still plans to install the traffic signal at Nicholls Road this spring.With ever-increasing traffic on U.S. 89, with a 55 mph speed limit, the traffic signal will help area residents safely cross to the east.
