WHAT TO EXPECT IN FRUIT HEIGHTS
- Mountain Road - As part of UDOT's U.S. 89 project, the Mountain Road connection to U.S. 89 (the 200 N/400 N intersection) is closed through June. The east leg of the U.S. 89/Nicholls Road intersection is open, so drivers living between 650 North and Nicholls Road will use Nicholls to access U.S. 89. Residents on Oakmont and points north will use Crestwood Road. This closure will allow crews to continue work on the 200 N/400 N interchange, including the bridge, on-/off-ramps, and connections to local streets. The new interchange is scheduled to open in late June/July.
- Nicholls Road - Nicholls Road, on the west side of U.S. 89, is closed through mid-April. The closure will allow for the installation of new irrigation lines. The road will reopen until the new 200 North/400 North interchange opens this summer, at which point, Nicholls Road access to U.S. 89 will permanently close.
- Green Road CLOSURE - Beginning mid-February, UDOT will close Green Road on the west side of U.S. 89. This is the permanent closure of Green Road access to U.S. 89. When Green Road reopens in 2023, it will connect to the new frontage road that runs south to Nicholls Road and Lloyd Road.
- Mountain Road UDOT Update - Utility work is ongoing on both sides of the closure, and one-way flagging will begin soon on the 650 North/Mountain Road side. Work will continue through May.
- 1350 East UDOT Update - Utility crews are beginning work on 1350 East. Traffic will be maintained in a one-way south-bound configuration. Two-way traffic out of the area will be maintained via Shady Lane Way and Grand Oaks Drive (1400 East). Work will continue through April.
Finally, for the public’s safety, UDOT is asking that people stop walking and riding through the construction areas as there is a lot of work that is occurring. With all the heavy equipment and construction vehicles, it is difficult to see people walking or riding bikes. UDOT is worried about an accident and need your help in obeying all construction signs and road closures. Please be respectful of the heavy equipment and the work that is occurring along the HWY-89 corridor.
• Utility Interruptions - Residents should expect intermittent utility interruptions (i.e. water, power, phone, etc.) during the next several months. As the City is made aware of scheduled disruptions, information will be disseminated to you through the City’s social media accounts and website.
The U.S. 89 project will improve safety and mobility by widening U.S. 89 to three lanes in each direction, and by adding bridges over U.S. 89 with on/off-ramps at 200 North/400 North, Oak Hills Drive, Gordon Avenue and Antelope Drive. Additional bridges will be built over U.S. 89 at Nicholls Road and Crestwood Road. Some sections of new frontage road will be constructed to improve access to existing frontage roads and local streets. This will help local traffic access the new interchanges and crossings efficiently. The frontage road system will also function as a signed bicycle route.
