Tremonton City Council held a public hearing addressing proposed improvements to the roadway at 1000 N., between 2300 W., to I-15 in Tremonton.The project will widen the road to accommodate a center turn lane, shoulders, park strips and sidewalk, which may affect some resident’s driveways.
UDOT employee Rod Terry, the project manager, as well as lead engineer Brandon Tucker and public involvement specialist Tiffany Carlson from Horrocks Engineers provided a presentation and answered questions.
Tucker said the project will stay within the UDOT right-of-way so new property will not have to be purchased. Since the roadway is higher than driveways there will be a slope tying the two together and UDOT will purchase a slope easement from property owners for that purpose.
For safety purposes, the project will widen 1000 N. from 2300 W., to the east side of I-15, under the freeway, tying into the off and on ramps. Travel lanes will be widened to 14’ and a center turning lane will be added.
As part of the preliminary design, curbs and gutters as well as a sidewalk will be added to the stretch. The city has suggested an 8’ sidewalk on the north side that will tie into an existing sidewalk just west of the project. A sidewalk on the south side may also be added.
