Zion Crossroads Small Area StudyVirtual Workshop

Existing Conditions

In this room, you can learn about how US 15 and US 250 in Zion Crossroads operate today.

The first exhibit (Existing Conditions - Intersection Safety) summarizes the findings for a crash analysis conducted on US 15 and US 250. This study evaluated crashes that occurred between January 1, 2014, and December 31, 2018. Key findings found in the crash patterns include:

  • Rear end (52 total crashes) and angle (42 total crashes) make up over 70% of all crashes.
  • Approximately one-fourth of reported crashes – 26 percent – involved injuries and/or fatalities.
  • Two fatal crashes occurred on this corridor as the result of an angle collision and an "other" collision.

The second exhibit (Existing Conditions - Intersection Operations) shows the overall intersection operational results of the existing traffic operations analysis for the weekday a.m., weekday p.m. and Saturday midday peak hours. The peak hours were found to occur from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., respectively. Presently, all intersections currently operate at a Level-of-Service (LOS) D or better except for the US 15/Spring Creek Parkway/Camp Creek Parkway intersection (LOS E in Saturday midday peak).
