Public Involvement Summary for Highway 89 Master Plan January 30 Meeting (click here)

Highway 89 Master Plan 

Highway 89 is the main transportation artery for Perry, and much of the surrounding region.  It’s an economic benefit to Perry and largely serves as our “main street.”  However, the current configuration of the highway separates the city, does not provide good places to cross (for cars or pedestrians), and its main street feel isn’t particularly inviting.  Perry City has long recognized the need to improve the highway to meet our residents’ needs.  However, Perry doesn’t own, or even control the highway; the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) does.  This has made it difficult to come up with cost effective, actionable plans to improve Highway 89 in the past. 

By working with UDOT and the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC), Perry City has now developed a three-step plan to make Highway 89 both meet regional transportation needs and guide the highway’s development in a way that meets Perry’s long-term needs, all while keeping cost to the city low.  These steps are: 

  1. Create a Highway 89 Master Plan, in conjunction with UDOT and WFRC 
  2. Enter into a Corridor Agreement with UDT, based on the Master Plan 
  3. Obtain funding from UDOT and the State to execute Highway 89 modifications 

The first step of this plan is already underway.  Using funding provided by UDOT and WFRC, Perry has awarded a contract to Kimley-Horn to develop the Highway Master Plan.  They will do this by engaging with the public, working with city officials, referring to Perry’s existing city master plan, and by leveraging community development experience from around the state. Developing the plan will take roughly a year.  The first public engagement is scheduled for January 30th.  

Once the Highway 89 Master Plan is complete, Perry will work with UDOT to enter into a Corridor Agreement for our section of the highway.  This agreement becomes a guiding document for UDOT and will give Perry a strong footing to obtain grants, from a variety of sources, to improve the highway.
