Construction Updates

2014 Schedule

Major street reconstructions scheduled for this year include 400 E from Pages into Bountiful. This project is being managed by Bountiful City.

Parrish and Main Intersection

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and City of Centerville have contracted with Stapp Construction for improvements to the intersection of Parrish Lane and Main Street. Construction will begin Monday, May 12 and is expected to be complete by mid July.

Parrish and Main Intersection Project

Intersection improvements include (see map above):

  • Additional left turn lanes for the northbound Main Street-to-westbound Parrish Lane and eastbound Parrish Lane-to-northbound Main Street movement.
  • Straightening the skew of the south end of the intersection/crosswalk. This will improve visibility and safety for pedestrian and school children.
  • Improved signal timing to enhance mobility through the intersection at peak traffic hours.


Activities for July 16 - 22 include continued work to place curb and gutter on the northwest and southeast corners of the intersection. The contractor anticipates this work will be complete by the end of the week, with sidewalk installed by Monday. Asphalt will be placed next week as well. The residential retaining wall on the northeast leg of Main Street is expected to be completed next week.

The week following – beginning July 28, will be the start of the “final treatment” work such as landscape restoration, signing and striping.  A finishing microsurface layer will be placed over top the asphalt the week of July 28 as well.

Please be mindful of construction crews and equipment when traveling through the intersection. Conditions and lane configurations are subject to change, depending on the construction activity. Also please note that all businesses are open during construction – driveways may be shifted or rerouted, but your local businesses always appreciate your patronage!
