Open House on the Nine Mile Canyon Road Improvement Project

PRICE, UTAH -- The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Price Field Office
is hosting two information meetings to discuss granting a right-of-way
to Carbon County for the exiting Nine Mile Canyon Road (County Road
#740) to change the running surface to chip seal. In addition, there
will be some upgrades such as drainage culverts, ditches and concrete
ford crossings. The project would upgrade a total of 36 miles of road.
Approximately 11 miles are located on Federal lands and approximately
25 miles on private and state.

The Nine Mile Canyon Road Improvement Project Area is located in
northeastern Carbon County and southern Duchesne County, Utah. The
Federal portions of the proposed project begin approximately 16 miles
northeast of Wellington, Utah.
