Construction on 900 East will be put on hold July 4 to accommodate the high number of activities happening in Provo.
The Provo Reach 2 Pipeline is currently performing construction on 900 East between 700 N and 1200 N. The pause in construction will allow for a third available lane as opposed to the current two lanes.
On the morning of July 4, the far-east lane of 900 East will be sectioned for runners during the Freedom Run. One northbound and one southbound lane will be made available for motorists.
Following the race, Provo’s Grand Parade will begin at 9 a.m. During the parade, there will be two northbound lanes and one southbound lane of traffic. The two northbound lanes are to accommodate the motorists traveling to the Stadium of Fire.
After the Stadium of Fire begins at 8 p.m., the lanes will be rearranged to allow for two southbound lanes and one northbound lane. This is in anticipation of traffic leaving LaVell Edwards Stadium, and will be maintained throughout the night.
Along 900 East, the intersections at 700 N and 820 N will remain unrestricted throughout the day, both before and after the Stadium of Fire to allow for side-street traffic.
