Are you looking for something fun to do? A way to keep kids entertained? A free fun date? Or how about a way to end summer with a bang? Well, look no farther! I am proud to announce that the party you have all been waiting for has finally arrived! Get ready for Rock the Canyon - Provo's big end-of-summer bash at Rock Canyon park!

The Covid-19 Pandemic and shutdowns have been hard on us all. We have missed countless parties, celebrations, get-togethers, dinner parties, birthdays, events, festivals, fairs, and interactions. This party is a way to give back at least a little to our community and, in our own small way, make up for what we missed this past year. Here’s to our bright and vibrant future!

Join us on Saturday, August 28 from 4:00 - 8:00 pm for giant inflatables, giveaways, petting zoo, live DJ, pony rides, fun booths, and food trucks! And then end the night with a Movie in the Park at dusk.

There will be fun activities and games for all ages, including dunk booths, fire trucks, prize wheels, balloon animals, and so much more! Don’t miss the party that celebrates it all! Hope to see you there!

I am excited to announce that construction on 500 West is substantially complete with all major work done and traffic control devices off the road!

Crews will continue final minor items and clean up through July. On behalf of Provo City, the Utah Department of Transportation, and Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction, we want to say thank you for your support and patience throughout this project.

To celebrate the completion of the project I invite you to join us on Saturday, July 17 from 9:00 AM until Noon for an all ages, family friendly event at North Park on 500 North and 500 West. See below for more details and the routes.

Project Recap

In addition to the full reconstruction of 500 West, the project replaced or upgraded several underground utility systems including gas, water, sewer and storm drain.

Based on input from you and your neighbors, the project added a number of safety features that include:

  • A 10-foot multi-use path on the east side of the road

  • 6-foot sidewalks along the west side and painted bicycle lanes

  • Improved school crossing signals at 500 North and 300 South, raised medians at key intersections to reduce the potential for side-angle crashes

  • A new pedestrian signal and refuge island at 300 North

  • Upgraded street lighting

  • and bulb-outs at local street corners (700 North, 600 North, 400 North, and 200 South) to shorten the crossing distance and improve pedestrian safety.
