Utah Heritage Areas Gain National Recognition

A bill passed by US Congress Monday designates two Utah highways (and associated small communities) as “national heritage areas.” The bill now goes to President Bush for his signature, which is expected to come quickly without any controversy.

A portion of US Hwy 89, long known as Utah’s Heritage Highway, was designated the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area. The section stretches between Fairview, Sanpete County, and the Arizona border.

The bill also created the Great Basin National Heritage Route, between Delta, Juab County, and Ely, Nev.
