State Route 113 (SR-113) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Utah. It is approximately 7.1 miles (11.4 km) long and connects Midway with US-40 and US-189 in Heber City and Charleston, respectively, in Wasatch County. Its entire length has been designated as part of the Provo Canyon Scenic Byway.[2]

Route description[edit]

The route southern end is in Charleston, at the intersection of Charleston Road and US-189. From here, the route travels north as Charleston Road through the Heber Valley. After about 1.3 miles (2.1 km), the route crosses over the Provo River in the northeastern corner of Deer Creek State Park, home of Deer Creek Reservoir. As the route nears the city of Midway, it is signed as Center Street. Entering Midway, the route turns east on Main Street (westbound Main Street is SR-222), crosses the Provo River again, and enters Heber City first as Midway Lane, and later as 100 South. Here it passes just a few blocks north of the main depot for the Heber Valley Historic Railroad, also known as the "Heber Creeper". The route ends in the center of Heber City at its intersection with US-40 (Main Street).[3] The east-west terminus is the main access to US-40 from Midway, which takes you to I-80. The north-south terminus takes you through Charleston to US-189, which directs you to I-15 in Provo.

History[edit]

The route was established in 1931.
