UDOT to begin construction to improve mobility at Pleasant Grove and North County Boulevard
Expect night work, lane restrictions and travel delays through 2023
OREM, UT (April 7, 2023) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will begin work as early as Monday, April 10, to enhance traffic flow and improve access to I-15 from the Pleasant Grove Boulevard and North County Boulevard intersection in Pleasant Grove.
Crews will begin night work at the intersection (Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.) to remove concrete medians as they prepare to expand the intersection and add lanes on Pleasant Grove Boulevard to improve the connection to the I-15 interchange. Motorists should expect moderate travel delays due to lane restrictions, shifting traffic patterns, and narrowed lanes.
“The commercial area around the Pleasant Grove exit has become an economic hub for the surrounding communities and Utah County — and it’s still growing,” said Eric Mason, UDOT project manager. “The tremendous growth in the area has led to increasing travel delays over the last several years. These improvements will help reduce delays and improve how commuters are able to get around.”
The $16 million project will build additional left turn lanes at the North County/Pleasant Grove Boulevard intersection and widen Pleasant Grove Boulevard to improve access to northbound I-15. Additional improvements include new traffic signals to the north and east of the intersection, resurfacing North County Boulevard from 2000 West to State Street in American Fork, and upgraded curb and gutter, sidewalks, and landscaping.
This project is scheduled for completion in late 2023. Construction activities are subject to change due to weather, equipment issues, or materials availability.
