Micron to seek master plan approval for 780 acres

Micron is set on creating its own business microtopia to complement the growing trend of what is becoming a central convergence of high-tech businesses in north Lehi.

The master-planned community site is 844 acres west of the semiconductor manufacturer's campus and is designed to attract businesses that support and are based in the latest technology providing for 20,000 to 24,000 employees and 3,000 residents...

5 million square feet office space

235.8 acres office space

And that is the reason why Provo doesn't grow upwards. Driving up and down I-15 you see plenty of office parks with 3-5 story buildings throughout Utah County. I think its more prevalent in Utah County then in Salt Lake County with random office parks along the freeway.

Utah Valley still had plenty of cheaper empty land available next to the I-15 path. Almost all of I-15 in Utah Valley cuts through former farm fields, not old growth neighborhoods, which I think is a big plus.

Provo/Orem will be just fine and continue to serve as a hub for Central and Southern Utah Valley. As has been mentioned often, Provo's significance will continue to build as the Southern end of the Valley continues it's rapid growth. Just these past five years have seen significant changes in Central and Southern Provo's housing density and the two University's redevelopment and expansion. UVU can't build fast enough, and that will continue. The Provo airport is now firmly entrenched as a necessary business tool. I think we'll see another airline soon, along with continued major expansion there. I also think we're going to see a lot of new business and housing expansion in Downtown Provo over the next ten years.

It's only a natural geographical outcome that Lehi becomes a hub for Northern Utah Co., and So. Salt Lake Co. I grew up in the Alpine/Highland neighborhood. It's an incredibly beautiful panorama of mountain scenery, and now it's so conveniently located.

One of the many things I admire about Lehi, is that it still has a very large historical core. It's intact historic neighborhoods cover a much larger area than Murray, Midvale or anything in Salt Lake Valley, with of course the exception of Salt Lake City itself. Old Main needs some tender loving care, but it would seem like the city has turned the corner on Main and is dedicated to the preservation and continued restoration of it's core.

With the high tech, relatively upper income masses moving in droves to Northern Utah Valley, we're going to see a lot of impressive additions to that immediate area in the next ten years.

Downtown Salt Lake City only needs to continue to push it's uniqueness in order to continue it's growth over the next few decades. Offerings like CCC and the Mega-Theater, etc. etc. are a must, in order to attract the General Metro or the well-heeled of the Metro's Silicon Slopes to Downtown.

I appreciate the competitive desire of each metro city to embellish and add to it's own portfolio. However, developments like the Aquarium really bother me. I don't even like to think about it too much, or I get overly pissed. Downtown would have been an ideal location. Even Thanksgiving Point would have been infinitely better than where it's currently being built. They should have waited just a little longer, until the right donor could pay for the additional land costs of a better location. Ugh!

..."All lawsuits are settled," Roberts said. "We did our very best to clean this up. We're thrilled for the citizens of Orem."

Orem city spokeswoman Charlene Mackay reported that this week the city received the 2011 annual assessment payment for Midtown in the amount of $421,923 for the city's bond on the development's parking garage.

"This payment brings them current until their next assessment payment, which is due June 1," Mackay said.

Rob Moore, representing Big D Construction, said, "Only good things can happen from here on out. The new ownership will be announcing their plans within the next month."...

Urban Style Apartment complex, 7-eleven coming to Orem Center St.

"It is a contemporary look that we think will be attractive to residents."

According to Paul, one of the unique aspects of Centennial Plaza is the interior streets and parking stalls that will not be seen by the public. The apartments will front the streets with landscaping and foliage.

December 25, 2012 12:40 am • Genelle Pugmire - Daily Herald

http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/orem/apartment-complex--eleven-coming-to-orem-center-st/article_fdb35863-cebd-5033-a161-2c09a81db3ea.html

OREM -- The Orem City Council has approved a zone change that will allow for a new housing development and adjacent 7-Eleven gas station and convenience store on the northeast corner of Center Street and Orem Boulevard.

Known as Centennial Plaza, the development is three buildings with a total of 110 apartments with one and two bedrooms. According to Adam Paul with Strategic Multi-family Management Partners, a part of Strategic Capital Group, the next step is to get with the planning commission and get final approvals on the site plans...

..."We are hoping to start by March," Paul said. "It will be a combination of standard and executive suites. Two-bedroom, one-bath apartments will rent for approximately $1,000 a month. We will also feature ground-level apartments."...

...The idea from both developer and the city is to have a walkable community for those living in the complex. With Target across the street, UTA access and shops surrounding the area, the idea would be to have a more "downtown feel."

During a recent administrative retreat, city leaders discussed future potential for developing that area around the city center to bring a more modern urban environment for a sort of downtown around State and Center streets.

"The direction the city wants is more people on State or closer. This gets them around the corner," Paul said...

Nothing says downtown like a Super Target.

It does sound like a decent development though. I always figured the best place for Orem's downtown, should they ever choose to care about one, would be the Center Street/State Street area.

Its about four blocks away. Midtown Village is about 350 South between State St. and Orem Boulevard.

I really wish a developer would step in and finish off Midtown Village. It is such an eyesore. I'm not sure the old trailer park wasn't better than what is there currently.

Proposed bridge over Utah Lake ‘very much alive’ (http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/proposed-bridge-over-utah-lake-very-much-alive/article_4f4a21e3-5050-5186-85cc-3a7eb3478abf.html)
If you thought the silence about building a bridge over Utah Lake meant the project was dead, think again.

In 2011, the Utah Legislature -- prompted by the bridge proposal -- created new requirements for anyone wanting to put a structural crossing over state sovereign lands, including Utah Lake. The new rule basically meant the group pushing the bridge would need to start a new application. In the intervening year and a half, no application has been filed.

Future Mayor
Jan 3, 2013, 4:28 PM
:previous:

'very much alive' I'll believe that when I see the process completed. I am glad that the state made the process much more difficult, eliminating fly by night proposals that would most likely end up being half built and abandoned across the lake.

If the proposal does happen, hopefully the state, county and the cities involved will look at the reality of the proposal and who it would really benefit, beyond the land owner on each side of the lake.

If I recall correctly the previous proposal had the bridge heading SW to NE, which was pointless, as the newly improved Redwood Road & Mtn View Corridor are designed to help Saratoga Springs residents travel north. Not to mention that the majority of residents in the Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mtn area live north of the west end of the bridge, which would make the bridge pointless for SL bound traffic. If the bridge were to be effective it should go NW to SE providing better access to Provo.

Don't get me wrong, I am not in support of the bridge because it will only promote more sprawl in Cedar Valley.

I don't know how I really feel about these little towns trying to create a faux downtown. Hopefully they base it on a classic city grid system.

Highland is trying to create their little downtown, creation, thing ...and then they forgot that they don't allow businesses to be open on Sunday which in turn caused Smiths Marketplace to build just over the western border in Lehi (allows businesses to be open on Sunday), Walmart just over the SE Highland border in Cedar Hills (also allows businesses to be open on Sunday). I think that stupid law is a little overbearing from local leadership. You're either pro-business or your're not. Highland has some people that don't realize this. Anyway, enough with my rant...

EAGLE MOUNTAIN -- The city leaders and staff of Eagle Mountain are looking both toward the past and the future in a new proposed master plan.

A central downtown area similar to Lehi Main Street or Provo Center Street may well be the most essential part of the design. The plan is not held by time constraints as of yet, cautioned Steve Mumford, Eagle Mountain's planning director.

American Fork group wants to restore downtown school building

AMERICAN FORK -- "Your help is needed to restore a gem" -- that's the heading of a letter going out from the Timpanogos Arts Foundation seeking funds to do an architectural study on the former Harrington School in downtown American Fork.

On the north side of city hall, the school has been vacant for many years and is far from a gem in its current state. It is privately owned by Dr. Carl Bell and there have been several proposals to put it to use, but none has come to fruition.

Bell has indicated his willingness to sell the building to the city, Paul Washburn, chairman of the arts governing board, said. But before the city takes the plunge, representatives would like to have an architectural study performed.

Imagine three blocks for the downtown with two one- or two-lane, one-way roads separated by 60-foot wide park areas. Each road either runs traffic east or west. Angled parking, similar to Provo's Center Street area, would be created on both sides of each road, making four rows of stalls for parking parallel to the businesses. Additional parking would be possible behind the close-packed storefront-style shops.

Would be easier to imagine with a rendering. Still, there's good ideas here and if people are going to live in Eagle Mountain it's better they can work/shop there instead of driving across the metro.

The residential zones closest to the main street area, for example, would be mostly townhomes and multi-family dwellings of that sort -- not apartment buildings. Farther north and south, away from the shopping arcade, the blocks would expand to the typical single-family row houses one sees in larger cities, and from there to the more traditional Eagle Mountain lot sizes and dwellings.

This is a relief. Apartments are scary.

Future Mayor
Feb 11, 2013, 5:10 PM
Not really sure how a 60' wide park strip makes an area a "downtown" Even if both sides of the street are lined with retail, that is a huge chasm to cross to get to the other side, 60' of park strip, plus two to four lanes of 12' each makes for a really wide not very urban feeling place. Minimum of 84', possibly up to 108' from curb to curb, I am assuming the heights won't be more than 2 maybe 3 stories, that doesn't provide much downtown feel, IMO.

But you do have to worry the area is becoming much like Denver's tech center, which sucks a huge amount of development away from downtown into the suburbs. Hopefully they can have smart, mixed-use development and utilize TRAX, making these areas more than just 9-5 locations.

The Innovation Center is part of Vivint's plan to keep its trademarks on all newly-developed equipment and technology being used by the company from here into the future. As part of the move, Matthew Eyring has been hired as chief strategy and innovation officer to oversee developments.

The Vivint Innovation Center, located in Lehi, employs hardware, software and radio engineers; industrial designers; and user experience professionals. Besides Eyring, Vivint named J.T. Hwang, chief technology officer; Jim Nye, vice president of product development; and Jeremy Warren, vice president of innovation. Warren joins Vivint from 2GIG Technologies, a company that develops home security and automation systems, where he served as chief technology officer.

Blackstone Group LP recently purchased Vivint for $2 billion, one of the biggest sales in Utah history, as well as Vivint Solar and 2GIG Technologies...

Very nice design. Thanks for that post Orlando. I'm really liking this style a lot. What they've been developing lately at UVU is very attractive, and helps to soften the original buildings some. I don't dislike the original comtemporary style of the campus, but I think this is an excellent and positive direction.

http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/north/american-fork/public-not-safe-nor-welcome-to-use-new--mile/article_f1c18173-88a1-5bea-ad09-1b8b7385ece9.html

A date has been set to open the new 16-mile Murdock Canal Trail to
the public, but officials are also warning that the trail is not open
now...

..."We understand people are excited because it is a great amenity,"
Gubler said.

The good news is that there will be a grand opening for the trail on May
18, including festivities in every city the trail goes through. Details are in
the works, but the public will be invited, said canal and city officials.

The best thing about the new trail "is that you are not competing with
traffic and vehicles," said American Fork Mayor James Hadfield in a
recent meeting.

"Trail systems in Utah County have come to the fore in the past few
years," said County Commissioner Gary Anderson. "One of the great
selling points we have for economic development is our trails. We are all
in this thing together. It is kind of a metaphor for our county."

The much-anticipated trail -- a full year ahead of schedule -- is being
built overtop the Murdock Canal, which now has been piped.

The canal was built in 1911 and enlarged in 1944, and begins at the mouth
of Provo Canyon and runs to Point of the Mountain.

The new trail goes through Orem, Lindon, Pleasant Grove, Cedar
Hills, American Fork, Highland, Lehi and Bluffdale.

Cathy Allred - Daily Herald

LEHI -- IASIS Healthcare is investing in Utah County with a hospital complex planned for north Lehi.

Great Basin Engineering representative Coury Morris said his company hopes to break ground on the project in late March or early April...

...Located east of Interstate 15 and west of the Pheasant Pointe community, the medical campus will have a two-story hospital with 40 beds, an emergency department and four operating rooms.

"There is kind of a lot going on at this point in Lehi," Morris said. "At total build-out there will be 80 beds; the first phase will be 40 beds. There are plans for a second medical center."...

...As a developer, IASIS is building the critical care hospital to serve Lehi and the surrounding communities and will focus on surgery and obstetrics. As a part of the facility there will be a three-story medical office building that contains for-lease spaces next to or attached to the hospital.

A second phase planned for the future would expand the hospital vertically two floors for a total build-out of four floors. In phase 2 there would potentially be another three-story office building on the other side of the hospital.

The initial facility will be about 184,000 square feet and a future expansion area of 74,000 square feet...

Hilton Hotels reveals plans for Thanksgiving Point

LEHI -- Hilton Worldwide is moving forward with plans to build its latest brand hotel, Hilton Home2 Suites, at Thanksgiving Point.

The secret went public at a Lehi planning and zoning commission meeting Thursday at City Hall.

Property Enhancement Group Development are the owner and developers, and representative Robert Schmidt said they were very excited about the Hilton Home2 Suites project.

"You look at all the things happening in the north end of Utah County -- Adobe, you look at all the office buildings that are covered, or under construction and its tenants that are moving into those buildings. Microsoft moved in, you have NSA happening across the way at the Utah Data Center. All of that will help drive business," Schmidt said.

The city officials gave the $10 million hotel project the go-ahead. PEG Engineering representatives will return to the Thanksgiving Point architectural design committee to finalize the project plans. Once the committee gives its OK, construction will be complete within a year.

The first new brand of hotels for Hilton Worldwide in 20 years, there are only 21 Home2 Suites in the United States with six more planned for completion this year. It will be the second Hilton brand in Lehi, joining Hampton Inn at Thanksgiving Point, and the first of its type in Utah County.

"They hope to start building in midsummer," Schmidt said...

Lehi - Digital publisher MultiView expands to Utah... Plans to hire 150.

"Along with hiring up to 150 new employees by mid-May, the Lehi branch plans to grow to 300 by next year."

The Salt Lake Tribune

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/money/55975213-79/multiview-150-business-com.html.csp

One of North America’s largest business-to-business digital publishers announced it has opened an office in Utah and will hire 150 employees this spring.

Dallas-based MultiView recently cut the ribbon at its new location at 3400 Ashton Blvd. in Lehi.

In a news release, MultiView President Dan Maitland said it was "imperative to stake a claim out West."

"Expanding in Utah was the perfect opportunity for us to move into a market with an extremely talented workforce and close proximity to our business partners all across the western U.S.," Maitland said.

MultiView employs 825 people with offices in Dallas, Toronto and Washington, D.C. Founded in 2000, the company is the nation’s top provider of royalty revenue to U.S. associations.

Along with hiring up to 150 new employees by mid-May, the Lehi branch plans to grow to 300 by next year. To apply, visit www.multiview.com.

...the timing is right for the Anderson Geneva Development to move forward with its master project totaling two million square feet of commercial office space.

...The plans were announced recently and welcomed by the Vineyard Town Council. In a presentation to the council, Cottonwood Partners, in cooperation with Anderson Geneva, will begin the project this summer at 800 North and Geneva Road.

Vineyard planning director Nathan Crane said, "We're excited about the potential. It would provide office jobs and some manufacturing."

Crane said Vineyard has received a letter of intent from the developer and if all goes as planned the project will replace the jobs left when Geneva Steel closed...

..."I anticipate a high level of interest from successful high-tech companies who are in a growth phase given the proximity to nearby universities, I-15 and the FrontRunner service," West said...

I agree for the most part. However, the highest concentration of parking lots are centered around the FrontRunner station (in orange) as a park and ride.

So overall it's just another office park and strip malls with tons of parking lots? I was hoping for more of a "Daybreak" type of development.

So overall it's just another office park and strip malls with tons of parking lots? I was hoping for more of a "Daybreak" type of development.

Well it's hard to say because this is all conceptual at this point. However, I don't think it will just be another office park w/ strip malls.

First off, Vinyard is a sleepy community with roughly 500 residents currently and isnt really suitable for prime residential. The project flanks the main North/South transportation corridor in Utah Valley at one of the valley's most narrow spots (I-15 between 800N and 1600N in Orem). There are a number of main transportation corridors that also feed into the area, FrontRunner, State Rd 52 (800 N) State Rd 114 (Geneva Rd.)

In short, I think the parcel of land is completely different from Daybreak, which is why it's a different type of project. A lot of the land was a steel mill for 50+ years and was contaminated during the steel days and can only support light industrial development.

It will be interesting to see how it all comes together. The accessibility is probably the best single location anywhere in the county.

New Steakhouse for American Fork

Are bookstores done? New steakhouse moves to American Fork, displacing Seagull Book

Daniel Crivello - American Fork Citizen

A steakhouse will replace the Seagull bookstore this summer, according
to documents filed with the city, the latest example of the
growing competition in the restaurant industry in American Fork, where
over 110 food establishments call their home.

The American Fork City Council is expected to vote Tuesday on
a construction plan filed by Salt Lake City-based Woodbury Corp., a lessor
of commercial buildings at Timp Plaza.

Longhorn Steakhouse, a 30-year-old chain with 370 locations in 35
states, said it plans to open a restaurant in the shopping center located
at 200 North and U.S. 89 in American Fork, its first in Utah County and
its fourth in the state. The chain is run by Orlando-based Darden Restaurants, which owns Red Lobster and Olive Garden among other
chains.

According to the plans filed with the city, the Seagull Book building
is proposed to be demolished, and the new, one-story structure will
consist of approximately 6,480 square feet. The southern third of
the shopping center’s parking lot will be redesigned and landscaped to
meet the city’s landscaping requirements...

Wasatch is right. Believe it or not the "sea" of parking serves a functional purpose as it is an actual EPA requirement in the remediation of a contaminated soils site. However you can still build residential on it. Midvale has done a lot of this in the River bottoms off of 72nd south. The builder just pays more for the infrastructure.

I recently found that Spanish Fork City Council approved a preliminary plat for Woodbury Corporation to build a 97 acre commercial development on each side of US-6 including the Food 4 Less building and vacant land behind it.

The project is detailed in the council's agenda and minutes (http://spanishfork.org/meetings/agendasminutes.php?type=cc) for January 15 (PDF) (http://spanishfork.org/meetings/docs/cc/2013/cc_agenda_2013_01_15.pdf); p. 55–60.

The project called "Canyon Creek" realigns and extends Chappel Drive as it becomes Canyon Creek Crossing. It also puts in a new road heading north from Expressway Lane at 1100 East called Market Place Drive. I've heard some comparisons to The Meadows in American Fork.

I grabbed some of the images from the PDF and added reference points to help orient you to the project.

I've noticed a lot of dirt moving on the west side of highway 6. Plus, you can tell that they are building a road there as well. The Kneaders and Costa Vida have opened, and a Starbucks is being built right next to Costa Vida. They haven't demolished the old Food 4 Less building yet. I drive past this everyday, I live right behind there on the old highway 51. I can keep an eye on this development and let everyone know how it is progressing. I think the building of the Costco really made people realize that Spanish Fork is going to be the place to go to get away from the Zoobies in South Valley. Much like The Meadows is the place to get away from the Zoobies in North Valley.

I know that this is wishful thinking, but can we please get an In&Out or a Panda Express down here. PLEASE!

If you try to shop anywhere in Provo/Orem you will find your self over run by BYU/ UVU students. They fill the shops and restaurants all along University Parkway and clog the movie theaters in Provo/Orem. Now, I'm not saying that there is anything bad about Zoobies. But when you live in Spanish Fork like I do, and you want to take your wife out to eat on a Friday evening. It'd be nice to go someplace that doesn't have an hour long wait. We recently discovered Braza Express, we were impressed.

The Meadows shopping center in Lehi/ American Fork is nice, because it is away from the younger congestion. I know that there are still a ton of people all over up there, but at least the people are more adultish. (If that's even a word)

My intention wasn't to stereotype or downgrade any particular group of people. Rather, to point out that there are over 100,000 people living south of Provo and we don't have shopping opportunities that don't include being wrangled and corralled about like we're a bunch of college students.
I love the new Costco. It's refreshing to be in a large store and not feel like I should be wielding a light saber about, just to get to the deli section.
It'll be just as nice to have more food options where we won't have to wait in line forever because there are 20 couples, (15 of which are 1st dates) in line in front of you.
I love BYU, I'm a huge fan. My wife graduated from BYU and we were living in BYU housing when we met. But I'm no spring chicken anymore. I don't like fighting with the students come feed time. I just don't have the energy now that I have to deal with kids of my own.

To Deek's point, I think his emphasis was the population south of Provo that is underserved in a retail sense.

The Riverwoods is in north Provo, near the Orem border and very inconvenient to the south Utah County population.

Deek: Have you tried Jaxies on Main and 700 N? My neighbors own the place and it is quite refreshing; if not somewhat out of place from your stereotypical Spanish Fork offering.

Mar 22, 2013, 11:58 PM
I will have to agree that once you get south of Provo Town Center there isn't really any decent shopping areas to shop at in southern Utah County. Spanish Fork is 35,000+ and then you have Payson, Salem, Mapleton and Springville close by bringing the total much higher that would actually shop in Spanish Fork. That is a huge contrast to when I lived in Spanish Fork when there was only 9,000 people in the city. I wouldn't say there have been an equal amount of shopping growth in the city in those 24 years. Its about time that Southern Utah County gets some love too.

That is true, once you pass Payson heading south there's nothing til you hit Nephi.

I wouldn't say nothing as you do have Santaquin a bit south from Payson and it has seen a bit of growth in the last few years. though when you get past Santaquin there isn't anything till Nephi. Then after Nephi, there is Nothing really between Nephi and Ceder City but Filmore and Beaver.

As a young lad, I thought it once cool to see city from Nephi to Tremonton. Now I can only hope people will learn the benefits of a more urban lifestyle and the areas wont fill up like that. At the rate things are going the I-15 corridor along the wasatch front will become the longest stretch of freeway in the US with 3 or more lanes in each direction. once the get the portion extended to Payson, it will be from Payson to Far West that will be 3+ lanes. That is roughly 100 miles. Expand that from Brigham City to Nephi and you have 140 miles of 3+ lanes of traffic. Personally I have no desire to see that happen.

4. A new McDonalds at 2000 W. PG Blvd (near the I-15 Interchange)


As the economy picks back up, I would expect you'll see a lot more development near the Pleasant Grove interchange.

Just wondering, but where is 1300 West and PG Blvd? Is that anywhere near the freeway?

Yes, it's close to the freeway. I've never heard of Doterra. I just Googled them, and they are an "Essential Oils" company. ?? They sell skin health products, apparently. Interesting. I wonder if this is a break off of NuSKin?

I don't think it is a break off of NuSkin, it might be a break of of Young Living. There are a few that broke off of Young Living.

What it the current status of Orem's Midtown Village? Is it being finished or not? If so, what's the time frame; will it be finished in accordance with the original plans, etc?

Yeah, I'm curious about that project also. Wasn't the financial mess recently cleaned up with new owners? It seems they should be making some progress on finishing that up now, but I haven't seen any reports on it lately.

Thanks. Looks like a lot of parking spaces, although the layout of the parking indicates that they could be used for future development.

Most of the central parking lots are for a park and ride for a future FrontRunner station.

Finally, a grocery store for Eagle Mountain

This hardware-grocery store combo, recently built by Ridley's in Middleton, Idaho, is the same type of store that will be built in Eagle Mountain.

EAGLE MOUNTAIN -- Eagle Mountain's long-sought grocery store got final approval from elected officials this week, and was greeted with "stars, fireworks, and flying colors," said a city spokesperson.

Construction could begin as early as this month on a 55,000-square-foot store in the city.

Nimby's are out and about in Orem, thought, I'm not real sure how I feel about Todd Peterson taking a golf course and turning it into 12 lots for his family

I guess the new course down in Vineyard will more than compensate for this loss, but I would still definitely miss Cascade.

LEHI -- Lehi is the "Little Engine that Could" when comparing Utah city residential construction.

First in 2012 for the 963 dwelling construction permits issued with South Jordan coming in second at 906, Lehi is trailing Ogden -- population 84,000 -- in the first quarter of 2013 by just three...

...Named the population epicenter in Utah nearly a decade ago, Todd said the Lehi area is establishing itself as a major epicenter of economic activity. Lehi officials and municipal staff have worked proactively and will continue to work at building upon the growth it is experiencing, he said.

The Traverse Mountain area in particular has seen rapid growth since the Adobe expansion and the Xactware construction began, he said.

UDOT planning summer construction projects, including south I-15

Genelle Pugmire - Daily Herald

http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/udot-planning-summer-construction-projects-including-south-i/article_bc7ffcff-96f8-5524-b68e-961b4aa0dd29.html

...Leftover bond money from the I-15 project that was completed in December is being used this year to add one lane in each direction between Spanish Fork and Payson. The good news is the widening will be done from the inside lanes.

"They will be widening in the middle with mostly night work," UDOT spokeswoman Muriel Xochimitl said. "The existing two lanes will be open each way for the duration of the project."...

...In north Utah County the focus will be completing small projects along the Timpanogos Highway and at the roundabout in Alpine.

Projects along State Street will include a milling operation with new asphalt being poured between 700 South in Springville and 300 South in Provo...

...Optimizing mobility is important to UDOT, Xochimitl said. "One such area is the State Street improved project where UDOT is widening portions of State Street from 1860 North in Orem to 100 East in Pleasant Grove to create a consistent seven-lane roadway (three lanes in each direction, plus a center turn lane). Crews will repave the road with new asphalt and upgrade traffic signals. Widening this portion of State Street will help optimize mobility for local residents and businesses by reducing congestion and allowing traffic to flow more smoothly."
