Notice is hereby given that FHWA has taken final agency action subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the Porter Rockwell Boulevard Project in the State of Utah. The Porter Rockwell Boulevard Project proposes to provide transportation improvements along Porter Rockwell Boulevard, between Mountain View Corridor, Redwood Road, and the 14600 South interchange at I-15, in Salt Lake County, Utah.

The project consists of the following improvements: Widening Porter Rockwell Boulevard from four travel lanes to six travel lanes between Mountain View Corridor and Redwood Road; Widening Porter Rockwell Boulevard from two travel lanes to six travel lanes between Freedom Point Way and 14600 South; Constructing a new six-lane roadway on new alignment between Redwood Road and Freedom Point Way to connect existing sections of Porter Rockwell Boulevard at Redwood Road on the west and at Freedom Point Way on the east; Constructing a bridge over the Jordan River, the UPRR/UTA Frontrunner rail line, and several canals, which would be designed for a 50 year lifespan and would be of sufficient width to carry six travel lanes, plus pedestrian/bicycle facilities; Improving the Porter Rockwell Boulevard/Redwood Road intersection to accommodate the 2040 travel demand; Constructing an intersection at 14600 South that would curve Porter Rockwell Boulevard to the east to connect directly to the 1-15 interchange; and Incorporating a new bicycle route and multi-use trail facility as part of the roadway and providing a connection between the new trail and the Jordan River Parkway Trail.
