Timpanogos Special Service District (TSSD) West Side Interceptor Project

PROJECT OVERVIEW - As of Monday, Sept. 12, the Timpanogos Special Service District (TSSD) will be installing an additional sewer line along the south side of 7350 North between Lehi Center Street and Saratoga Road in Lehi and Saratoga Springs. This new line, the Westside Interceptor, will run parallel to the existing sewer line to accommodate growing service needs in the area. The public should expect both sides of 7350 North to be impacted by construction. Construction is anticipated to last through fall 2024.            

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Day work, Monday through Friday
  • Weekend work as needed
  • Occasional traffic shifts, detours and lane closures
  • Temporary intersection closures at Saratoga Road and Lehi Center Street in early 2023
  • Increased noise, vibration, dust and lighting

CURRENT WORK

  • To maintain the construction schedule of the Westside Interceptor Project, the current closure of 7350 North/145 North will extend north up 9150 West to 1650 South. Additionally, the closure of 7350 North/145 North will be extended west to Clark Drive. This closure will be in place through February 2023. Drivers needing to access the local schools and the surrounding area should use the detour routes outlined below.

South City Sewer Pipeline Project

Construction of the South City Sewer Pipeline Project will run through May 2023. The project begins at Grandview Blvd and south to Ring Road. 

Summary Facts About The Project

  1. The project is a new sewer pipeline.
  2. The benefit of the project is to provide additional capacity, reduce reliance on pumping, and improve the redundancy of the sewer collection system.
  3. This project alone does not resolve the lack of sewer collection system capacity; a pump station is also required.
  4. The project extends from Grandview Blvd to Ring Road.
  5. The project also includes small sewer improvements in the development above Ring Road.
  6. 95% of the work is located outside of the public right of way in easements. 
  7. Lake View Terrace will be affected by a closure from January - December
  8. Ring Road will be affected by traffic controls requiring slower speeds. This portion of the project is expected to take place at some point between March-May 2023.


Foothill Blvd. Extension Project

City Council has awarded the bid to build the Foothill Blvd expansion from Pony Express Parkway to Lariat Blvd. The project began in spring 2022 with an estimated completion fall 2023. 

  • Project Cost – Estimated Project Cost is $14M - $17M.
  • Funding Sources and Amounts – The City received funding from the Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG) in the amount of $8.5 M and anticipates we will be submitting a request in the near future to increase MAG funding to $10M. This funding will become available in FY 2024. Securing funding for the remainder of the project will be the responsibility of the City. The City may pursue additional grants and funding sources for this project as they become available.
  • Project Scope - This project will extend the existing Foothill Boulevard (800 West) from its current southern terminus at Pony Express Parkway approximately 3.2 miles south to Lariat Boulevard. This first phase will be designed as a 3-lane minor arterial with one travel lane in each direction and a continuous center lane. It is anticipated that between Pony Express Parkway and Grandview Boulevard this roadway will become part of northbound frontage road of the future Mountain View Corridor when it expands to this location.  South of Grandview Boulevard the roadway will be remain a local road.
  • Brief Description - This project is an important component of the future regional transportation system since it will be constructing what will become the northbound frontage road for the future Mountain View Corridor. When completed it will provide a connection to the existing Mountain View Corridor via 800 West. This will provide congestion relief to Redwood Road by providing an alternate north-south route along the west side of south Saratoga Springs where approximately 11,000 residents currently have only a single road to access their homes.
  • Current Actions – The City has solicited Statements of Qualifications from engineering firms in order to select a consultant to provide planning and design services for this project. Once selected, design on the project will begin immediately.
  • Next Steps - The City will simultaneously be working on right-of-way acquisition and on an advanced funding agreement with MAG to facilitate a fast tracked timeline of construction.
  • Timeline – Work has begun on the project.Map of Foothill Blvd. Extension project
