There are many different reasons why work could be taking place on a particular stretch of road. Reasons could vary from yearly maintenance (asphalting, chip sealing, etc) to emergency repairs by one of the utility companies or for scheduled infrastructure work.
Although not all work in the streets is done by Ogden City, we can certainly make every effort to help you get in contact with the right person. If you have questions, please feel free to call the Public Ways and Parks Division at (801) 629-8271.
In the meantime, please drive cautiously, and be patient when you see the street crews working in your area and obey flagmen and construction signs. This is for both your safety and the crews safety.
