SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (ABC4 News)- The Utah Department of Transportation opened an extended stretch of the Mountain View Corridor Saturday, giving motorists in Utah County greater access to the highway.
The nearly three-mile extension of Mountain View Corridor is from 2100 North and Redwood Road in Lehi to S.R. 73 and Pioneer Crossing in Saratoga Springs, according to officials.
Crews say they have added a trail underpass and bike boxes at Redwood Road and 2100 North, two-lane frontage roads in each direction, and new intersection connections at S.R. 73 and Mountain View Corridor at Foothill Blvd and 2100 North and Redwood Road.
They’ve also added a signalized intersection at Harvest Hills Boulevard and pedestrian signal at the intersection of MVC and Harvest Moon Drive.
To celebrate, UDOT hosted a community celebration with state transportation officials, local city leaders, and legislators, followed by a community 5K fun run and walk.
When complete, the project will connect the Mountain View Corridor to S.R. 201.
