The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and Provo City are partnering to continue making improvements to US Highway 89 following the 300 South improvements made in 2017. Originally planned to improve 500 West in Provo between Center Street and Bulldog Boulevard, the project team has determined that improvements should be extended to 500 South.
The project goals remain to improve the roadway and underground infrastructure while providing better transportation options for all kinds of road users including improved pavement, new bike lanes, new sidewalks and a wider multi-use path.
The project will reconstruct the roadway between 300 South and 800 North. Improvements in this section include:
Improved pavement – asphalt to concrete
Upgrades to underground utilities including sewer
Improved drainage with a new storm drain system and curb/gutter
On-street bicycle lanes in each direction
Raised, planted medians between blocks (no intersections affected)
Improved pedestrian crosswalks in several locations
Additionally, the project will extend the new storm drain system to 500 South and add on-street bicycle lanes to Bulldog Boulevard. The same number of travel lanes will be maintained.
An additional project open house will be held June 13 at the Provo Recreation Center from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. Join us to learn more about the project design!
Construction is now planned to begin in the spring of 2019. Stay up to date by subscribing to project email updates by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (385) 250-0606.
