The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is preparing a State Environmental Study (SES) to evaluate the long-term mobility needs of State Route 241 (also known as 1600 North in Orem and 600 South in Lindon) between 400 West (Lindon) / 1200 West (Orem) and State Street (US-89). The study will evaluate impacts to residents, commuters, and the environment. This section of 1600 North is currently a three-lane road that provides direct access to I-15 from State Street. Initial solutions to meet long-term mobility needs in the area may include additional travel lanes and active transportation facilities, such as bike lanes and/or a multi-use trail.
In 2019, City of Orem and Lindon City requested to transfer ownership and maintenance responsibilities of 1600 North to UDOT. This transfer (from city to state ownership) provides additional funding options for possible future construction, and also requires an environmental study. The environmental study started in October 2021 and is scheduled for completion in November 2022, with two opportunities for the general public to provide input. See "Public Meeting" tab for more information.
To account for potential intersection improvements at 1200 West and State Street, the study area continues to 1350 West and 375 East
Environmental studies are process-driven, meaning this schedule is approximate and subject to change.
