Signal planned for 800 West/Pony Express Parkway intersection

By Linda Petersen
Saratoga Springs The city has taken the first steps toward installing a traffic signal at 800 West and Pony Express Parkway.

On October 3, the city council approved a purchase agreement with the LDS church for $50,000 for a right of way to install the signal over church-owned property adjacent to the intersection.

The signal installation is part of the interlocal agreement between Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain for the widening of Pony Express Parkway from Redwood Road to Porters Crossing. Paying for and installing the signal would fulfill the city's match requirement for this project.

A previous traffic study by Horrocks Engineers indicated that a traffic signal is warranted at that intersection. Two bids for the signal were received and opened in June. The low bidder in the amount of $176,927 was B. Jackson. (A previous May request for bids received no responses).

The city council approved funding for this project in the FY2016-2017 budget.
