Spanish Fork City planning officials outline transportation plan revisions | Spanish Fork News

The Spanish Fork City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve revisions to the city’s Transportation Master Plan that include improving the trail system and installing roundabouts to reduce traffic on crowded city roads.

City officials prepared the transportation plan revisions in order to “provide improvement recommendations that will accommodate the City’s growth and maintain the current level of service,” Spanish Fork Public Works Director Chris Thompson wrote in a memo released Sept. 30.

The plan includes a “completed assessment of existing roadway classifications and level of service” and recommendations for “roadway functional classifications, number of lanes, intersection improvements, and right-of-way required to accommodate future traffic in the year 2050.”

Additionally, the revisions include recommendations for “alternative modes of transportation throughout the City including bike lanes, shared use trails, car pooling, park-and-ride lots, local Utah Transit Authority (UTA) bus routes, bus rapid transit, and commuter rail transit,” according to the memo.
