Safety Improvements to Powder Mountain Highway Begin

Jul 17, 2012

After four years of planning, Utah Department of Transportation will begin safety improvements to State Road 158, also known as Powder Mountain Highway in the next 30 days.

Improvements will begin at Pine View Dam in Ogden Canyon and follow the northern shore past the Ogden Pineview Yacht Club and cover eight miles and will include a bridge over North Fork Creek, guardrails at appropriate places, asphalt to level lanes, and chip seal to top off the entire eight miles. 

The "V" intersection with 2200 North will be improved, and turn lanes will be added to intersections with Willow Brook Lane, Moose Hollow Drive, Elkhorn Drive, and Fairway Drive.

Money for the project is from federal sources, according to UDOT.
