Did you know Forrest Gump ended his years long run here in Utah? UDOT is starting a new repaving project in that area this week. The repayment of U.S. 163 will improve mobility and safety on 10 miles of highway, including the popular “Forrest Gump Hill.”
Over the years, hundreds of people have stopped at mile post 13.4 to memorialize the fictional character’s run and take in the breathtaking views. Makeshift pullouts and old pavement have caused safety concerns for engineers. Crews will replace existing roadway, install five improved pullouts, and modify edge drop-offs.
