Cache Valley Road Work to Potentially Disrupt Farm Transportation


A project to repair a bridge in Northern Utah begins this weekend and farmers needing to move farm equipment through the area should prepare now for road closures.

Repair work on the Bear River-Cutler Reservoir Bridge is scheduled to begin Sunday. Utah Department of Transportation crews will repair the deck of the bridge between Cache Junction and Newton on SR-23.

The around-the-clock work begins at 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning and travel across the bridge will be limited to one lane for most of the project.

UDOT warns oversized loads and movement of farm equipment across the bridge will be restricted, but that the contractor can accommodate for large vehicle travel across the bridge if UDOT is contacted at least 24 hours in advance.

Work on the bridge should be completed by Friday, August 31.
