State Route 146 (SR-146) was a state highway in the U.S. state of Utah that connected the city of Pleasant Grove with SR-92 at the mouth of American Fork Canyon, some 5.3 miles (8.5 km) to the north in Utah County.

Route description[edit]

Route 146 started in Pleasant Grove at the intersection of 100 East and State Street US-89. Travelling north on 100 East, the route left Pleasant Grove, turns into Canyon Road, and traveled along the eastern foothills of Cedar Hills, Utah until it ended at the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway at the mouth of American Fork Canyon.

History[edit]

State Route 146 was first established in 1933, with its south end at US-89 (then known as Route 1, and later as Route 8) in Pleasant Grove, and its north end connecting with what was then SR-71 (now numbered SR-74) south of Alpine and west of the mouth of American Fork Canyon.[3] SR-92 (then numbered SR-80) was established in 1935 and had its eastern terminus at SR-74,[4] but in 1941 was extended east to the Uinta National Forest boundary in American Fork Canyon,[5] replacing the 1.7-mile (2.7 km) stretch of SR-146 between SR-74 and the mouth of the canyon.[6] It was deleted in a road exchange creating Utah State Route 129 on December 5, 2014.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Utah County.
