Snake River Landing Paver Crossing Replacements

HK Construction has begun construction activities in two separate phases in Snake River Landing to make improvements to several crossings. Phase 1 will require the entrance/exit to the development at Pancheri Drive and Milligan Road to be closed. All local businesses and residences will be accessible during construction but detours will require the traffic to use Utah Avenue at Pancheri Drive for access.  Phase 2 Intersection of Whitewater Dr & Snake River Parkway (east side replacement) all northbound traffic from Event Center Dr to Pier View Dr will be shifted to the west for one lane travel. All southbound from Pier View Dr to Event Center Dr will be reduced to one lane of travel. Please watch for equipment and workmen, follow all traffic signs and flaggers, and reduce speeds to posted limits. We anticipate completion of the work on this project around the end of June.

Sunnyside truck traffic increase
The Heritage Park project will have a high volume of truck traffic at the southern end of Snake River Landing this summer. From I-15 to the Snake River, earth removal will require dump trucks to utilize the route frequently. Be aware of the hazards of matter behind the trucks and keep back at least 30 feet when following a truck. Be aware of slower moving vehicles and watch speeds. Please be courteous of other motorists. Barring unforeseen conditions, this increase in activity will continue until approximately mid May.
