During the Utah Department of Transportation’s recent State Road 193 construction project, design improvements were made to SR 193 from South Gate Boulevard.
As part of the enhancements, UDOT extended the dedicated “free right” turn lane for southbound to westbound turn movements from South Gate Boulevard onto SR 193. With this free right turn lane, it remains legal to turn right from South Gate Boulevard onto SR 193 without stopping.
Drivers must still yield — that means slow down and prepare to stop for pedestrians and bicyclists at the existing crosswalk — but can keep motoring if the roadway is clear. Drivers should not stop on or around the curve, and should only stop if it becomes necessary to yield.
