MARCH 4 MEETING PLANNED ON UVSC’S ROAD PROJECT

SHARE MARCH 4 MEETING PLANNED ON UVSC’S ROAD PROJECT

Residents in the neighborhoods surrounding Utah Valley State College will have an opportunity to review plans for a new college road project on Monday, March 4.

The neighborhood meeting, originally scheduled for Tuesday, was changed at the last minute, said Val Peterson, UVSC vice president of college relations. Peterson will meet with residents at the meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. in the UVSC ballroom.Conceptual drawings of improvements to UVSC's peripheral road and the first roundabout ever to be constructed in Utah will be presented. The roundabout is planned for UVSC's 1200 South entrance. It is a round road that will include entrances and exits for drivers to enter and leave. A drop-off point and short-term parking area at the entrance are also in the plans.

Peterson said the meeting was postponed because adequate notice was not given nearby residents, nor had funding been approved by the Legislature. College officials hope $3.4 million will be approved by next week when the legislative session ends, said Peterson.
