Utah County is pleased to announce the opening of the newest section of the North County Boulevard in Pleasant Grove. The roadway connects State Street to Pleasant Grove Boulevard at approximately 2000 West and will improve transportation access and capacity to the north Utah County area.
To officially open the new road, the County is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, July 31, 9:00 a.m. at the south portion of the newly completed road. As part of the celebration, classic cars and hot rods will be available to allow dignitaries to drag the boulevard in style.
County commissioners, staff, and other project personnel are looking forward to the celebration.
“It’s a great day, because it’s [the road] something that we’ve been working on for the past decade,” said Utah County Commissioner Larry Ellertson. “It’s wonderful to finally see it come to fruition.”
The North County Boulevard is part of several transportation projects the County is working on in conjunction with UDOT to improve transportation access throughout the County. Those projects, including the TRAX South Commuter Rail that will link Salt Lake City to Provo, are scheduled for completion by 2015. The North County Boulevard was designed by local engineering firm Horrocks Engineers and constructed by Sunroc Corporation.
To attend the ceremony on Friday, July 31 at 9 a.m.: Take the Pleasant Grove/Lindon Exit 275 and head east on Pleasant Grove Boulevard. Turn left at the first intersection (North County Blvd.). The event will be held approximately one block north of the intersection.
