200 South American Fork to Close June3-August 15
200 South American Fork from south Mill Pond Road (7350 West) to approximately 7200 West will close Monday, June 3 through Thursday August 15, 2013 while crews install a 60-inch pipeline for the Central Utah Water Conservancy District. Detours will be clearly marked. The intersection of Mill Pond Road and 200 South will be open for traffic until July 8. After July 8, this intersection will be closed to all traffic. After July 8 access to areas west of 7400 North will require detouring off of Pioneer Crossing at 7800 West (300 East Lehi). Access to areas east of the closure will be from American Fork Main Street and 300 West.
Those using UTA buses from Eagle Mountain and other areas to connect with the FrontRunner station on 200 South will need to plan on additional commute time of approximately 12 minutes.
General work hours are between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Work hours could be extended if circumstances warrant.
Updates on the pipeline’s progress and how construction will affect the public are being provided through a public information outreach program.

About the Project
The Vineyard Connector Segment is the final segment of the North Shore Aqueduct of the Central Utah Water Conservancy District Water Development Project (CWP). It connects previously installed pipelines to complete a large culinary water transmission system from water sources to communities and agencies in northern Utah and southern Salt Lake Counties.
It will consist of the installation of approximately 32,700 feet of 60-inch welded steel pipe and 1,120 feet of 48-inch welded steel pipe within easements and rights-of-way obtained by the Central Utah Water Conservancy District and will extend from approximately 600 East and Pioneer Crossing in Lehi to 1600 North and 150 West in Vineyard.
It will also consist of replacing approximately 5,200 feet of 24-inch sewer line with a 48-inch sewer line for the Timpanogos Special Sewer District along with drains and manholes.
The Pioneer Crossing and the North and West Segments of the North Shore Aqueduct are already in place. This is the final segment to complete before water deliveries begin in 2014.
