Current and Future Improvements, according to UDOT:

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) finished a safety study on US 6 in September 2002 that has allowed the department to proceed with several safety  improvement projects along US - 6 from Green River to Spanish Fork. Safety improvement projects will begin in Summer 2004.

The US 6 Safety Study warranted an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to be completed. The EIS, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), will address the long-range needs of the US 6 corridor and was completed in February 2005. It recommended that US 6 ultimately be upgraded to a 4-lane arterial highway from Spanish Fork to Green River (I-15 to I-70).
