US-95: Granite North

This project will improve safety by expanding US-95 over Granite Hill, building frontages roads to consolidate access to the highway and realigning the Trails End Road intersection.

Work began in February 2021 is expected to be done in 2022.

Construction

Crews will mobilize into the work zone in March 2022 to rebuild US-95 to four lanes over Granite Hill and finish Vintage Road. Both routes are expected to open by July, though construction is expected to last through October.

Once Vintage Road opens, Homestead Road and North Williams Lane will lose direct access to US-95 and will instead use the frontage road to access the highway.

Construction in the area began last spring, with the first season of work producing Mineral Ridge, the road traffic currently travels on through the work zone and what will serve as the frontage road to the east after the project is complete.

Design

Following the public meeting in July 2018, the design team made changes to the project to incorporate feedback, limit impacts and reduce costs.

Note that US-95 intersections with Mara Meadows, Granite Loop Road, Old House Road, Homestead Road and North Williams Lane (at the county line) will be closed and reconnected to frontage roads that will run parallel on both sides of the highway to safely intersect with SH-54 or Trails End Road. East Williams Lane will be left as is. As of February 2022, the only intersections yet to lose direct access include North Williams Lane at the county line and Homestead Road.

Though not called out in the map, the existing graded gravel path at the south end of the project will be extended through so it can be paved at a later date.
