LEHI, Utah — The Utah Department of Transportation is looking at expanding Clubhouse Drive near the Thanksgiving Point golf course in Lehi to connect I-15 and Redwood Road.
“Currently SR-92, or Clubhouse Drive, ends just east of the Jordan River, there’s a golf course right there. So we would be looking at a possible connection that would go across the river and then extend west,” Project Manager Craig Hancock said.
Hancock said right now they’re looking at extending the road to Redwood Road. But, they might go beyond that depending on what happens with the Mountain View Corridor.
The project aims to improve projected traffic for commuters between I-15 and the western parts of Utah County.
“We do have a number of roads in this area, and we’re looking out [to] 2050 and seeing how much capacity is going to be left on those roads and whether another east-west type connection is needed,” Hancock said.
He said they’re also working on an environmental impact assessment through this year and into next year. There will be public meetings and hearings to get the community’s opinion.
“We’ll look at impacts not only to the natural environment, but we also look at impacts to the community and the neighborhood,” he said.
They’re hoping to have the study completed late next year. But, Hancock said it will take several years to extend the roadway.
