The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is proposing improvements to State Route 9 (SR-9) in Washington County, Utah, between Interstate 15 (I-15) and the future Southern Parkway. The purpose of the study is to evaluate long-term transportation goals and objectives for a 6.5 mile-long section of SR-9, between Interstae 15 (I-15) and the future Southern Parkway connection at milepost (MP) 6.5, at approximately 2800 West.
The Project's goals include the following:
- Accommodate 2050 travel demand for local traffic on SR-9
- Accommodate 2050 travel demand for through traffic on SR-9
- Decrease safety risk at at-grade intersections on a high speed corridor
- Safely accommodate active transportation for both pedestrians and bicyclists
- Accommodate future transit
The Utah Department of Transportation has completed the State Environmental Study (SES) for proposed improvements to State Route 9 (SR-9) in Washington County, Utah between I-15 and the future Southern Parkway connection (approximately 2800 West).
The SES has been approved and has been published. This comes after UDOT conducted a public scoping meeting in March 2019, and a public hearing in February 2020. You may download or view the document below:
