SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City will begin replacing waterline and storm drain utilities in the northern half of the 2100 South 300 West intersection starting Thursday, July 8.
Vehicles traveling through the area will experience congestion and delays due to lane closures and traffic shifts while temporary signals are installed. Motorists are advised to plan extra time to travel and to drive safely as traffic patterns shift through the project area. These changes will be in effect from July 8 through Oct. 31, 2021, when work is expected to be completed.
This utility work will take place during weekdays. Lane closures and traffic shifts will be in place at all hours. Pedestrian access will be available on the south side of 2100 South with north to south access at 400 West and West Temple. At least one lane in each direction will be open at all times. (See attached map.)
Information will be posted on the overhead freeway message boards and traffic conditions for 2100 South will be posted on the Utah Department of Transportation Traffic App to alert drivers in advance. Alternate routes like 2700 South, 1300 South, 500 West, and West Temple are great options for commuters who are driving through the area and headed to other destinations.
The work is being done in conjunction with the 300 West Road Reconstruction project to upgrade underground utilities, add sections of missing sidewalk, and add a new two-way bike lane to make the road from 2100 South to 900 South safer, more accessible, and welcoming. The 300 West reconstruction project is expected to be fully completed by October 2022.
