Heber Valley Parkway Planning Study

HVP Planning Study

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Heber Valley is growing rapidly. The population has doubled over the last 17 years and is expected to

double again by 2050. This growth is leading to periodic congestion on Main Street (U.S. 40) in Heber City,

particularly during the summer when regular traffic is joined by recreational traffic that accounts for potentially

35% of trips through town. Currently Main Street carries approximately 30,000 vehicles per day (vpd). By 2050,

that volume is expected to increase by about 30% to 39,000 vpd. Meanwhile, traffic volumes on the other north south

roads through Heber are expected to approximately triple. This discrepancy between growth on Main

Street and other roads is because Main Street is already nearing capacity today and will not be able to handle

the full future traffic demands, which would cause traffic to spill over onto other roads to get around town.
