PROVO — Construction is set to begin on 300 South between 100 West and 700 East on Monday, April 4, and an open house to discuss the project and its impacts has been scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday at Provo Peaks Elementary School, 665 E. Center.

The city and the Utah Department of Transportation are partnering to improve mobility in the area by rebuilding the road in concrete. The project will also include new curbs, gutters, sidewalks and raised medians; a new traffic signal at 400 East; improved pedestrian and bicycle crossings at 200 East and 600 East; an 8-foot pedestrian and bicycle path on the north side of the street; bicycle lanes on both shoulders; and new park strips and landscaping with improved lighting, plants, trees and tree grates.

During construction, 300 South will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Motorists should be prepared for significant delays and use alternate routes such as I-15 or University Avenue when possible. Area residents and businesses can expect short-term, intermittent driveway interruptions and construction work during the day and at night to complete work this year.
