Project Overview

 
 
 

Bluff Street in St. George is a highly traveled roadway in an area continuing to grow. Currently, over 44.000 cars travel on Bluff Street per day, with an expected 65,000 cars using the roadway by 2040.  To address this need, UDOT completed an environmental study in March of 2015 to evaluate various transportation options. A solution was identified which met transportation needs while minimizing impacts. 

The project will:

  • Widen Bluff Street to three lanes in each direction between St. George Blvd. and Sunset Blvd.
  • Add a dedicated free right turn lane from St. George Blvd. to Bluff Street
  • Maintain current left turns at St. George Blvd. and Bluff Street intersection
  • Expand left turn movements at the intersection of Bluff Street and Sunset Blvd.
  • Increase shoulder width and dedicated lanes for bike traffic along the corridor
  • Improve pedestrian access
  • Upgrade existing trail system in the area.

​These improvements will:

  • Accommodate future expansion as growth dictates
  • Save money so other area roads can be improved
  • Create safe pedestrian and bicycle access
  • Decrease environmental impacts to surrounding areas
  • Enhance turn movements by increasing capacity
  • Expand traffic flow by adding lanes and improving safely along the roadway.

​UDOT is working to "Keep Utah Moving"!

The project is anticipated to be complete in the Fall of 2018.
