Southern Parkway among large road projects for 2013

With summer driving season approaching, the Utah Department of Transportation announced Wednesday its top 10 road construction projects for the rest of the year. Among those projects is the Southern Parkway in St. George. The parkway is a 33-mile project that will eventually become an eastern belt route for Washington County. Currently, eight miles are complete from I-15 to the new St. George Airport. Construction continues this spring and summer to extend the new highway another eight miles.

In addition, I-15, St. George Boulevard diverging diamond interchange reconfiguration will commence. Reconstruction work will take place on the existing diamond interchange to install southern Utah’s first diverging diamond interchange. Work is expected to begin this summer and be completed by the end of the year. KSL News
