Pleasant Grove overpass on State St.

Here are a couple of artist views of the overpass in PG on State St. over the railroad bridge instead of expanding under the bridge.

This is badly needed to relieve the bottle that develops there.
Getting around this construction will be tough. There aren't that many good roads to use a secondary access points.

Project Name: U.S. 89: State Street Railroad Bridge, Pleasant Grove

Project Location: State Street, between Main Street (Geneva Road) and 200 South in Pleasant Grove

Project Design Schedule:
  • Design Phase Start-up – Oct. 2006
  • Right of Way Acquisition Start-up – Sept. 2007
  • Design Completion – Sept. 2007
  • Anticipated Construction Start-up – Dec. 2007
  • Anticipated Construction Completion – Fall 2009
Project Overview: In June 2006, the Federal Highway Administration issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) after reviewing the Environmental Assessment conducted by UDOT for improving the railroad bridge crossing at State Street (U.S. 89) in Pleasant Grove. UDOT has now moved into the design phase. The improvements include:
  • Eliminating the bottleneck by widening State Street from the current two lanes to five lanes (two lanes in each direction with a center turn lane, shoulders, curb and gutter, park strips, and sidewalks).
  • Removing the existing UTA/UPRR bridge and building a new highway bridge which crosses over the tracks.
  • Improving the State Street and Geneva Road intersection
