SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- For many years now, the bulk of all the road construction projects have been in Salt Lake Valley -- but that will soon change.

Many of the big projects planned for the upcoming construction season will take place outside the Wasatch Front.

This summer, Cache County and northern Utah will be the site of several major construction projects planned by the Utah Department of Transportation.

The two most expensive and expansive projects will take place on U-S 89 between Logan and Bear Lake.

One is a seven-point-five (M)million dollar project set to begin in June that will include three bridge replacements and the addition of a pedestrian underpass just east of Logan.

The second U-S 89 project will occur at the eastern end of the state, where U-D-O-T will spend 21-point-5 (M)million dollars for highway improvements that include a reconstruction of the Bear Lake overlook and rest area.
