Night work will continue on University Parkway and 700 North in Provo this coming week, according to the Provo-Orem Transportation Improvement Project contractors.

TRIP is more popularly known as the BRT or bus rapid transit project and is expected to be completed in spring 2018.  

From Monday to Wednesday, motorists should expect intermittent left-turn lane restrictions along University Parkway between 400 West and State Street in Orem, according to project spokesman Andy Neff. Overnight restrictions will be in effect Monday and Tuesday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. for median paving.

Residents and motorists along 700 North in Provo should expect to see utility relocations to continue through Wednesday at the intersection of 700 East and 700 North, according to Neff’s weekly updates. The west leg of the intersection is closed to all traffic. North and southbound traffic through the intersection is reduced to one lane on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Alternating one-way traffic will be directed by flaggers. Motorists should expect delays.

“The intersection of 700 North/400 East is closed to all traffic and 700 North is closed to through traffic between 300 East and 500 East through next week,” Neff said. “Crews are currently working between 300 East and 400 East and expect to close 700 North between 300 East and 200 East towards the latter part of next week.”

Westbound traffic is detoured to 800 North and eastbound traffic is detoured to 600 North. Pedestrian access is maintained at intersections. To maintain public safety, pedestrians and bicyclists are asked to stay out of the roadway work zone and remain on the sidewalk and walkways at intersections.
