Orem Boulevard is one step closer to completion.

The City Council approved a plan line from 400 North to 800 North, the last segment of a street that runs diagonally through the city parallel to State Street.Ed Gifford of Orem's Public Works Department said he had contacted nearly all those who own property bordering the proposed project, and "they are all excited and will be positively affected by the changes."

The city owns nearly all of the land to make the improvements and will have to acquire only a few feet to construct the street.
