UVSC's main artery to get an overhaul

University Parkway is the busiest intersection in Utah County, and it is also one of the roads in the state. Students heading to classes at UVSC have to negotiate a minefield of potholes. Starting in May UDOT will be working on University Parkway from Geneva Road to 400 West.

Not mentioned in this article is the fact that around the same time UDOT will start operating the newly installed ramp meters on the Northbound ramp. Road work coupled with with drivers adjusting to flow halting meters could spell trouble for UVSC's main entrance, even with lighter Spring traffic.
