State Route 149 Widening

Project Description

State Route 149, a rural collector that leads from US 40 to the western entrance of Dinosaur National Monument, is the main access to Dinosaur National Monument from Utah. The route begins at the junction with US 40 and terminates at the boundary with the monument at mile post (MP) 4.2. The existing paved widths vary from 22 to 26 ft. The proposed project consists of widening the existing facility to two, 12 foot lanes with two, 4 foot shoulders (32 foot paved width) and includes 17 culvert replacements and a bridge replacement at approximately MP 2.7 (Brush Creek). Subgrade stabilization is proposed from MP 3.2 to 4.
