The Mountain View Corridor will have phased implementation to address short-term regional transportation needs while providing a long-term solution for the future. Mountain View Corridor will eventually be a 35-mile freeway from I-80 in Salt Lake to Lehi Main Street
16000 South to Old Bingham Highway (9 miles)
During initial construction, UDOT built two one-way frontage roads on each side of the future freeway and bike lanes and trails from 16000 South to Old Bingham Highway. The frontage roads consist of two lanes in each direction with signalized intersections.
In the future, UDOT will add freeway lanes between the frontage roads. Bridges will be added to convert intersections to freeway interchanges and ramps will connect frontage roads to the freeway system.
Old Bingham Highway to 5400 South (6 miles)
During initial construction, UDOT built the outside lanes of the freeway in each direction and the future on and off ramps. A biking and walking trails runs adjacent to the corridor.
In the future, UDOT will add bridges to convert intersections to interchanges. Additional lanes will be added to provide a freeway that will eventually extend north to I-80.
The funding allocated for initial construction for Mountain View Corridor in Salt Lake and Utah counties was $860 million. Funding was used for property acquisitions, utility relocations and the construction of the frontage roads and outside lanes of the future freeway from I-15 to Redwood Road Utah County and from 16000 South to 5400 South in Salt Lake County.
Funding has been identified to extend Mountain View Corridor from 5400 South to 4100 South in Salt Lake County in the near future.
UDOT Increases Speed Limit on Mountain View Corridor
UDOT conducted a speed study in the spring of this year to evaluate the speed limit along the Mountain View Corridor (MVC). Speed limits are initially determined during the design phase of road construction projects and are based on the roadway type, the number and type of access points and items that affect sight distance like curves and hills. After MVC opened to traffic and the speed study was completed, UDOT recommended that the speed be increased.
The speed limit from 16000 South to Old Bingham Highway has been increased from 45 mph to 55 mph. MVC consists of a system of permanent frontage roads in this area with multiple existing and planned access points between current intersections (and future interchanges). The frontage road section will always remain as a lower speed roadway and the freeway lanes will be added in the middle in the future.
From Old Bingham Highway to 5400 South, there are no frontage roads planned or implemented. The construction recently completed in this area is the outside lanes of the future freeway that operate at higher speeds. The speed limit increased in this area from 55 mph to 65 mph.

Frontage Road Phasing Plan
Frontage roads were built from I-15 to Redwood Road. The land in the middle will be preserved for construction of additional lanes during subsequent phases. Intersections will be converted to interchanges.
