Originally published February 20, 2018:

To accommodate current and future traffic demands, Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs will widen Pony Express Parkway from two lanes to five lanes from Porter’s Crossing to Redwood Road. This project will be constructed in two phases. 

Phase One: Possibly beginning as early as Wednesday, February 28, 2018, construction crews are scheduled to extend two culverts where the Welby-Jacobs Canal and the Utah Lake Distributing Canals cross under the roadway, and several irrigation pipe crossings between Thunder Boulevard (200 West in Saratoga Springs) and Redwood Road. This work is to be completed by early April 2018. 

Phase Two: The second phase will be to widen Pony Express Parkway. Crews are scheduled to begin road construction by late spring. Work will continue throughout the summer with an expected completion by fall 2018. 

School entrances will stay open during the school year and two traffic lanes will remain open on Pony Express Parkway. Between June and August, accesses may be periodically closed at times while crews build the improvements. Motorists can use State Route 73 as an alternative route. 

Please use caution and obey all signs and posted speeds when driving through the construction zone. The construction schedule is subject to change for various reasons such as, equipment problems, inclement weather, and emergency situations.
