Public Reminded to “Think Safety” In and Around Mountain View Corridor Construction Zone

 SALT LAKE CITY – As the school year begins, UDOT is issuing an important safety message for families and motorists living and driving near the Mountain View Corridor (MVC) construction in Salt Lake County. The current construction area of MVC is in close proximity to several schools, including Hunter High School and Hillside Elementary, which begin classes on Wednesday, August 17.  

ABOUT THE PROJECT:
15 miles of the Mountain View Corridor (MVC) opened December 15, 2012 in Salt Lake County from 16000 South to 5400 South. Current construction is underway from 5400 South to 4100 South in Salt Lake County. Initial construction includes two lanes in each direction with signalized intersections, bike lanes and trails. Future construction will build out the remainder of the Corridor by converting intersections to interchanges and adding inside lanes to achieve a fully functional freeway. In the future, MVC will a 35-mile freeway from S.R. 73 in Utah County to I-80 in Salt Lake County.
