FINAL EIS AND ROD










Final EIS

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) in coordination with Payson City, published the Final EIS on November 30, 2018, which is available for download below. The Final EIS identifies Alternative C1: Braided Ramps as the Preferred Alternative. This recommendation is based on a thorough analysis of the transportation benefits, design and operational considerations, impacts to key resources, costs, input from the public and regulatory agencies, and regulatory requirements. The Final EIS also shows the considerations and responses to comments received from members of the public and regulatory agencies on the Draft EIS released in September 2017. These responses during the Draft EIS phase can be found in Chapter 4 of the FEIS.

Alternative C1 includes:

  • Improvements to the existing interchange at Main Street
  • A new interchange approximately 0.7 miles to the northeast
  • A new five-lane arterial road (Nebo Beltway) connecting the new interchange to State Route (SR)-198
  • Braided ramps connecting the Main Street and Nebo Beltway interchanges
  • Main Street widened to five lanes at the interchange and tapered to its current configuration south of 600 North
