Road closures for Fourth of July


The Central Utah Water Conservancy District has released information on road closures and traffic information for the Fourth of July. In order to stay safe and make transportation as smooth as possible on the Fourth of July, be aware of the holiday road changes.

The traffic pattern through the Central Utah Water Conservancy District pipeline construction zone on 900 East between 700 North and 1200 North on Wednesday, July 4, will be different from the other days of the week. During the morning, the eastern-most lane will be used by race participants during the Freedom Run, with one vehicle travel lane northbound and one travel lane southbound available for motorists.
Following the race and during the parade, which begins at 9 a.m., there will be two northbound travel lanes and one southbound travel lane. This will accommodate northbound traffic heading to the Stadium of Fire event as well.
During and after the Stadium of Fire, which begins at 8 p.m., the traffic pattern will shift to accommodate two southbound travel lanes and one northbound travel lane. This configuration will be maintained throughout the night to accommodate the high volumes of traffic leaving the area of the event.
The intersections at 700 North and 820 North along 900 East will be unrestricted to allow for side-street traffic throughout the day and before and after the Stadium of Fire.
