Welcome to Mountain View Corridor, Utah County
The Mountain View Corridor (MVC) is a planned freeway in western Salt Lake County and northwestern Utah County, servicing 13 municipalities.
What was recently constructed in Utah County?
In Utah County, a three-mile frontage road system was built from Redwood Road to I-15 on 2100 North in Lehi. The frontage road system consists of two lanes in each direction with signalized intersections where MVC crosses local roads. Land is preserved in the middle for future expansion. Initial construction began in February 2010 and was completed in fall 2011, opening to traffic on September 24, 2011.
What are the new bridges that were built as part of the project?
As part of MVC, crews built new bridges spanning the Jordan River. The Utah Transit Authority also built bridges for the future FrontRunner line and the existing Union Pacific rail line. The 2100 North roadway crosses beneath these railroad lines.
What are the long-term plans for the MVC in Utah County?
The MVC team is using a phased construction approach designed to balance transportation needs with available funds. Future construction will build out the remainder of the corridor by converting intersections to interchanges and adding inside lanes to achieve a fully functional freeway. This phased approach is part of the overall MVC plan to address short-term regional transportation needs while providing a long-term solution for the future.
To meet projected transportation demands in the year 2030, the full MVC freeway will connect with Interstate 80 at Salt Lake City 5800 West in the north and Interstate 15 at Lehi 2100 North in the south. A trail and sidewalk system will also be built adjacent to MVC, providing 21 miles of trails through Salt Lake and Utah Counties.
