Current Major Transportation Projects

Highway 89 Reconstruction

Highway 89 connects Interstate 15 to Interstate 84 along the east bench of the Wasatch Front between Farmington, Utah and South Weber City, Utah through Layton. The U.S. 89 project will improve safety and mobility on U.S. 89 and at connections with local cross streets by:

  • Widening U.S. 89 to three lanes in each direction from Main Street in Farmington to State Route 193 in Layton
  • Adding interchanges – bridges over U.S. 89 with on/off ramps – at 200 North/400 North, Oak Hills Drive, Gordon Avenue and Antelope Drive
  • Adding bridges over U.S. 89 at Nicholls Road and Crestwood Road
  • Completing a three-mile extension of the existing Gordon Avenue to connect it to U.S. 89

The project will also improve connections between U.S. 89 and Main Street, S.R. 193 and Interstate 84. Some sections of new frontage road will be constructed to improve access to existing frontage roads and local streets. This will help local traffic access the new interchanges and crossing efficiently. The frontage roads will include shared shoulders that will also function as a parallel bicycle route.

West Davis Corridor

West Davis is a new 19-mile, four-lane divided highway project currently planned to be constructed in western Davis County. The first phase of construction will connect to I-15 and Legacy Parkway at approximately Glovers Lane in Farmington, extending west and north, terminating at 4500 West and the future extension of S.R. 193 in West Point. In future phasing, the highway is planned to extend to 1800 North in West Point.  Long range plans show it extending further into West Haven and Hooper, ultimately connecting back to I-15, however there is currently no funding or environmental process planned for this extension.

By 2040, the number of homes in western Davis and Weber counties will increase by 65%. This growth is expected to increase travel delays in this area by 62%, even with all other planned projects. West Davis will help address the growing population and meet future transportation needs. The current project budget is an estimated $800 million. The project is currently in pre-design and engineering. Construction is anticipated to begin Spring 2021.
