[ARCHIVED] Mormon Lake North Entrance Closed: Access to Mormon Lake through south entrance only

During this period, motorists will need to access Mormon Lake through the south entrance.

The closure, which is expected to last two to three weeks, is necessary so that crews can expedite repair of the cattleguard located approximately a half mile north of Rockledge Road near Milepost 8. Due to soil stabilization uses, the cattleguard has settled several inches below the roadway’s grade, creating a rough transition point for drivers that could pose a safety issue.

To repair the cattleguard, crews must first remove it to “dewater” its base, which includes a significant layer of moisture-laden subterranean clay. After this dewatering stage is completed, crews will install concrete slurry as bridging material to bring the cattleguard up to grade. Following a seven-day cure period, the cattleguard will be reinstalled and roadway areas on either side of it will be repaved to match its grade.

InterMountain West Civil Constructors, Inc., the project’s contractor, has deployed an electronic message board at the north entrance of Mormon Lake Road and signs in the township to alert residents of this closure. Motorists are asked to plan ahead and expect delays when traveling.

The Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project is slated to be completed by the end of the month; however, this schedule is subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen factors.
