The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has prepared a State Environmental Study (SES) to evaluate the long-term mobility needs of State Route 241 (also known as 1600 North in Orem and 600 South in Lindon) between 400 West (Lindon) / 1200 West (Orem) and State Street (US-89). This section of 1600 North is currently a three-lane road that provides direct access to I-15 from State Street. The Preferred Alternative would meet the long-term mobility needs and includes additional travel lanes and active transportation facilities, such as bike lanes and a multi-use trail. The study analyzed impacts to residents, commuters, and the environment.

In 2018, Orem City conducted a study to evaluate widening 1600 North from three lanes to five lanes in the study area. Based on this study, it was acknowledged that 1600 North has regional significance because it links Interstate 15 (I-15) and State Street. In 2019, the City of Orem and the City of Lindon transferred ownership and maintenance of the road to UDOT, and it was given the name State Route 241. With 1600 North (SR-241) under state ownership, UDOT initiated the SES in 2021. More information on the goals and objectives of the project are located in Chapter 1 of the SES.

To account for potential intersection improvements at 1200 West and State Street, the study area continues to 1350 West and 375 East
