Welcome to Mountain View Corridor
The Mountain View Corridor (MVC) is a planned freeway in western Salt Lake County and northwestern Utah County, servicing 13 municipalities.
What was constructed in Salt Lake County?
Initial construction of MVC in Salt Lake County built two lanes in each direction from Redwood Road (at approximately 16000 South) to 5400 South. The initial 15-mile segment includes signalized intersections where MVC crosses local roads and land is preserved in the middle for future expansion. Initial construction in Salt Lake County began in summer 2010 and was completed December 15, 2012.
Which section of MVC opened December 15?
On December 15, UDOT offically opened MVC to make a total of 15 miles of new roadways and trails from Redwood Road at 16000 South to 5400 South. The initial phase of the corridor is now complete and includes two lanes in each direction and is similar to a divided highway, with one-way northbound and southbound roadways.
Which Segment of Mountain View Corridor Opened October 13?
Earlier this year, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) opened a two-mile the Mountain View Corridor (MVC) from 14400 South to 12600 South. On October 13, UDOT opened an additional seven miles to make a total of nine miles of new roadway, bike lanes and trails from Porter Rockwell Blvd. at 16000 South to old Bingham Highway.
Which section of MVC opened on June 2?
On June 2, a two-mile section of MVC, from 12600 South to Rosecrest Drive (14400 South), opened to the public. UDOT coordinated with the local communities to open this section of MVC early to help ease traffic congestion in the area.
What are the utility relocations taking place as part of MVC?
MVC is preparing utilities now for future road construction. In Salt Lake County, MVC has acquired property as part of a coordinated effort with utility companies to relocate existing power lines and to construct new lines within the MVC utility corridor.
What are the long-term plans for the MVC?
The MVC team will use a phased construction approach designed to balance transportation needs with available funds. Future construction will build out the remainder of the corridor. Full build-out will enhance initial construction 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 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. The transit component of the project is a high-capacity service line on 5600 West in Salt Lake County that connects with both the planned Airport Extension at the International Center and Mid-Jordan Line in South Jordan. A trail and sidewalk system will also be built adjacent to MVC, providing 21 miles of trails through Salt Lake and Utah Counties.
