The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has begun improvements at the intersection of SR-73/Pioneer Crossing and SR-85 to enhance traffic flow and safety.

The work aims to alleviate congestion and improve efficiency for commuters and cyclists in the area.

Starting July 8, UDOT will begin implementing modifications, including the addition of a left turn lane, adjustments to existing pavement striping and the relocation of a bicycle lane.

These changes are expected to provide smoother transitions and reduce wait times for drivers at the intersection.

Work will be conducted from Monday to Friday, with Saturdays as needed and continue through the remainder of the summer. Standard working hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., although occasional night work may occur.

Impact on Commuters

During the construction period, residents and commuters can expect several temporary changes and potential inconveniences:

  • Night-time closures of the intersection at SR-73 (Cory B. Wride), SR-145 (Pioneer Crossing), and SR-85 (Mountain View Corridor) may occur. Signage will provide directions and alternative routes.
  • Lane shifts and temporary barricades will be in place while new lane striping is applied and allowed to dry.
  • Temporary interruptions to the existing bike lane and pedestrian crossings may also occur.
