Davis County highway to become a freeway?

Local News

DAVIS COUNTY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – After nearly a year of studying traffic jams on a popular corridor, the Utah Department Transportation has decided how to fix it. 

Thursday, transportation officials made an official recommendation to turn about 10 miles of US-89 into a freeway. 

Officials say the revamp will include adding a lane in each direction between Farmington and I-84 in Uintah.  As part of the plan, they will also add interchanges at 400 North (Fruit Heights), Oak Hills Drive (Layton), Gordon Avenue (Layton), and Antelope Drive (Layton), as well as build bridge crossings at Nicholls Road (Fruit Heights) and Crestwood Road (Kaysville). 

Not everyone is happy about the changes — 27 homes along US-89 will have to come down if the project goes through.
