Current City Road Construction

Lehi Main Street/Crossroads Boulevard Widening Project

A project to widen Lehi Main Street/Saratoga Springs Crossroads Boulevard from 2300 West to Commerce Drive has begun. The speed limit in the construction zone has been reduced to 35 mph so that crews can work safely along the shoulders. All lanes of traffic are currently open. Please slow down, be alert and attentive, and watch for workers and construction vehicles.

Foothill Blvd. Extension Project

  • 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.

Pony Express Parkway Extension Project

  • 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 Drive and Segment 2 extends from Riverside Drive to the Jordan River Bridge.
  • Impacts –Tie-in at Redwood Road and Saratoga Road will occur in 2021. 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.

Safety Improvements

The Utah Department of Transportation recently conducted a safety study to identify potential solutions to improve safety on Pioneer Crossing through Lehi and Saratoga Springs. UDOT met with both cities to review and discuss the study recommendations. From the study UDOT recommended to implement the following:

  • Install overhead and side-mounted advanced warning systems at each signal to alert drivers that the signal is changing to red and to prepare to stop. The study identified 2300 West as the top priority for an AWS system, followed by 500 West. These two intersections would be installed first, with the remaining intersections to follow as funding allows.
  • Reprogram the left-turn signals for the EB and WB traffic at 2300 W, 1100 W, 500 W and Center Street to remove permissive lefts (flashing yellow arrows) and implement protected left turns only (green arrows). These adjustments can be made with the existing equipment already installed at the signals.
  • Adding a protected left-turn signal for EB and WB traffic at 1700 West, and
  • Installing curve warning signs with advisory speeds at key points along the corridor.

"Pioneer Crossing is one of the main east-west corridors serving the communities of Saratoga Springs and Lehi. By working closely with our city partners we were able to identify solutions that would improve safety and keep traffic moving on Pioneer Crossing," said Rob Clayton, UDOT Region Three Director.

  • UDOT has moved forward with reprogramming the left-turn signals at all the intersections from 300 East to 2300 West to a protected left-turn movement. 
  • The left turn signal at 1700 West is currently being installed and the curve warning signs will be added in the coming weeks.
  •  The AWS system at 2300 West is scheduled to be installed within the next six months once design work and a contractor is selected to build them.
