Support building the Murdock Connector

This petition had 684 supporters

Northern Utah County has seen explosive growth over the years. This growth has brought many East/West roads in the area to capacity; leading to the concern for emergency personnel to respond in an efficient manner.  With the lack of East/West transportation connectivity, it is finally time to build the Murdock Connector. The three-lane connector has been on the Highland City transportation master plan since 1980 and would connect Alpine Highway to Utah County Blvd. 

Currently the only expeditious ways to travel east and west in that area of the county are miles North to Timpanogos Highway or head miles South to State Street in American Fork. Regional transportation money has been approved years ago to build the road by Utah County and other government entities.  

The project was also approved in 2014 by the State Legislature to build on state property owned by the Utah State Developmental Center (USDC).  The Daily Herald reported earlier this year “Politics and a revamped process in 2015 dictated Highland representatives needed to go back for state approval, only this time in front of USDC board members.”

This less than a mile road would cut five miles off an ambulance trip to American Fork Hospital from the South Highland area.  American Fork City has unanimously approved a resolution in support of this road (click here to see a copy).  It is anticipated that many other cities will soon be joining in through resolutions of their own.

Join in supporting the resolutions to build the connector and let the USDC Board and the State Legislature hear your voice today!
