Riverside Drive

Riverside Dr will be closed to through traffic between Pioneer Crossing and 400 south starting April 4 as part of the Pony Express expansion project. This closure will allow crews to complete the round about at Riverside Dr and place the paving for this project. It is anticipated to be completed by May 27. 

Riverside Dr Closure

  • Location & Background – An Extension of Pony Express Parkway from Redwood Road to Saratoga Road. A MAG funded project. PEPG is Engineer.
  • Need & Purpose - Pony Express Parkway is a future Major Arterial (5 lanes), however at this time the project will consist of a 3 lane section with the ability to expand to the 5 lane section in the future. The project is made up of 2 segments, Segment 1 extends from Redwood Road to the existing roundabout at Riverside Dr and Segment 2 extends from Riverside Dr to the Jordan River Bridge.
  • Impacts –Tie-in at Redwood Road and Saratoga Rd will occur in 2022. Minor traffic impacts at Redwood, significant impacts at Saratoga Road as traffic pattern is permanently changed. Saratoga Rd will Tee into new Pony Express Extension. In addition there will be significant impacts to Riverside Dr as the round about is reconstructed and paving is done.


Future Road Construction Projects

Foothill Blvd. Extension Project

City Council has awarded the bid to build the Foothill Blvd expansion from Pony Express Parkway to Lariat Blvd. The project will begin this year with an estimated completion fall 2023. This expansion will include improvements to the intersection of Pony Express Parkway and Foothill Blvd. The improvements will include:
  • Dual right turn lanes from Foothill Blvd heading west on Pony Express Parkway
  • Dual left Turn Lanes from Pony Express Parkway heading north on Foothill Blvd
  • Dual northbound lanes on Foothill Blvd to Marie Way

  • Project Cost – Estimated Project Cost is $14M - $17M.
  • Funding Sources and Amounts – The City received funding from the Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG) in the amount of $8.5 M and anticipates we will be submitting a request in the near future to increase MAG funding to $10M. This funding will become available in FY 2024. Securing funding for the remainder of the project will be the responsibility of the City. The City may pursue additional grants and funding sources for this project as they become available.
  • Project Scope - This project will extend the existing Foothill Boulevard (800 West) from its current southern terminus at Pony Express Parkway approximately 3.2 miles south to Lariat Boulevard. This first phase will be designed as a 3-lane minor arterial with one travel lane in each direction and a continuous center lane. It is anticipated that between Pony Express Parkway and Grandview Boulevard this roadway will become part of northbound frontage road of the future Mountain View Corridor when it expands to this location.  South of Grandview Boulevard the roadway will be remain a local road.
  • Brief Description - This project is an important component of the future regional transportation system since it will be constructing what will become the northbound frontage road for the future Mountain View Corridor. When completed it will provide a connection to the existing Mountain View Corridor via 800 West. This will provide congestion relief to Redwood Road by providing an alternate north-south route along the west side of south Saratoga Springs where approximately 11,000 residents currently have only a single road to access their homes.
  • Current Actions – The City has solicited Statements of Qualifications from engineering firms in order to select a consultant to provide planning and design services for this project. Once selected, design on the project will begin immediately.
  • Next Steps - The City will simultaneously be working on right-of-way acquisition and on an advanced funding agreement with MAG to facilitate a fast tracked timeline of construction.
  • Timeline – It is anticipated that design and right-of-way acquisition on the project will take 12-24 months. Once that is completed and the City secures the remaining funding, the project can be put out to bid.


UDOT CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
