Merrill Road Construction

In 2016 the Mall Drive Bridge was put in place by St. George City over the Virgin River on the west side of Washington Fields. From the moment it was open, a steady flow of traffic has dumped into the Fields. One road that has seen substantial use is Merrill Road (in front of the elementary school). This road is an important connector running east and west through the Fields. Merrill Road currently terminates at 20 east. For individuals wanting to continue eastward, it has involved navigating a scary farm road around Nichols Peak. In spite of this, courageous citizens have made this farm road into a well-traveled thoroughfare. The city is happy to announce that construction of Merrill road from 20 east to Washington Fields Road will begin this month. The anticipated price of this road will be $2.5 million. Merrill road will connect with Washington Fields and create an intersection at Lost Ridge Drive. Our Fields residents have long-waited for this safer, more convenient route. Opening date for the road is anticipated in December.
