Do an internet search for “most dangerous roads in Utah,” and chances are you will find a lot of ideas.
A list from the Advocates Injury Attorney office includes Washington Boulevard in Ogden (the busiest route in Weber County and having poor left-hand turn visibility) and Highway 6 from Spanish Fork to Price (a tight, twisting route through canyons — though by 2020, the Utah Transportation Commission celebrated a 75% drop in the rate of crashes with serious injuries).
Body shop Valley Collision named I-15 (narrow shoulders, lots of trucks), 1-80 (steep, sharp turns) and the Mountain View Corridor (no streetlights, no shoulders and only a single lane in each direction).
And Utah Personal Injury Lawyers included U.S. Route 89 in its lineup because of this road’s frequent twists and turns.
An internet search for “most dangerous intersections in Utah” offers a lot to choose from, as well.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported in 2016 that, according to data from the Utah Department of Transportation, the worst intersection on the state highway system is State Street at 4500 S. in Murray with 166 crashes.
Craig Swapp & Associates referenced the same data, pointing to Redwood Road containing both the second and third most dangerous crossings; while Kramer Law Group wrote in a blog post that the intersection of Pony Express Parkway and Ranches Parkway in Eagle Mountain is “plagued” with crashes.
The Salt Lake Tribune wants to know which Utah streets and intersections readers consider the most hazardous.
