CAPTION ONLY: VICTORY ROLL AT BUSY INTERSECTION

SHARE CAPTION ONLY: VICTORY ROLL AT BUSY INTERSECTION

Crews put finishing touches on asphalt paving at the Victory Road-Beck Street intersection, where work is expected to be completed by July 10. Still to come is a new traffic signal. Northbound traffic down Victory Road will be stopped before being allowed to turn right onto Beck Street. Southbound Beck Street traffic turning onto Victory Road will also be controlled by a light. Victory Road, popular with Davis County commuters, has been closed since early April. Traffic has been detoured on 300 West and onto North Temple and South Temple. Traffic jams noticed early on as a result of the closure have dissipated. Residents of the West Capitol Hill have noted an increase of traffic on alternate streets during rush hour. The Utah Department of Transportation is realigning the "Y" into a "T" style intersection. Officials cited numerous accidents in announcing the work.
