ⓘ Utah State Route 52

State Route 52 is a state highway in the U.S. state of Utah, connecting I-15 with US-189 along Orems 800 North.

The road became a state highway in 1923, and was numbered as a spur of SR-7 in 1927 before being assigned its own number 52. The west end was at US-89 until 1959, when it was extended to I-15; a further extension took it to SR-114 in 1964.

                                     

1. Route description

SR-52 begins at the intersection of Geneva Road SR-114 and 800 North in western Orem, across from the former Geneva Steel Plant, which was on the shore of Utah Lake. 800 North continues west of Geneva Road as SR-176, while SR-52 heads east, passing through a single-point urban interchange at I-15. For its entire length, SR-52 gradually ascends through the Utah Valley along 800 North, ending at US-189 where the valley gives way to the Wasatch Range and that highway enters Provo Canyon. A mid-1980s flyover takes traffic directly from SR-52 onto US-189 north in the canyon.

SR-52 is in the National Highway System as a connection between I-15 and US-189. A project to widen about half the length of the road through Orem from four to six lanes was completed in October 2008.

                                     

2. History

The road from SR-1 US-91, now US-89 in Orem east to SR-7 now US-189 at the mouth of Provo Canyon became a state highway in 1923. It was numbered as a spur of SR-7 in 1927, but in 1931 it was split off as State Route 52. In order to serve the planned Interstate 15, SR-52 was extended west to that road in 1959, and in 1964 the extension was continued to SR-114 simultaneously with a similar extension of SR-265.
