A key section of 2100 South in Sugar House will be reconstructed in 2024 and Salt Lake City is seeking public feedback to make sure it best serves all residents going forward.
Tens of thousands of travelers take the key travel and transit route between 700 East and 1300 East each day. The public is invited to take a survey about how they use 2100 South and concerns they have about the road today, and their ideas for improvement. The survey is open through July 31.
“We have a lot of different types of road users traveling to and through the Sugar House area. We must think about the best use of space for the kind of travel options people want,” said Lynn Jacobs, Transportation Engineer. “We want to understand how the public is traveling and what other improvements might help us keep this road moving for cars while potentially adding more space for pedestrians, bike lanes, on-street parking, or other features.”
Salt Lake City’s Transportation Planning team has begun concept development for the project and is examining existing conditions, crash and safety data, traffic counts, and plans for future development. The City team is meeting with area businesses, the Sugar House Community Council, Chamber of Commerce, residents, property owners and pedestrians to understand first-hand issues and concerns.
The six-block stretch was identified as a major priority for reconstruction through a citywide study of every City-owned street in 2017. The reconstruction will be funded as part of the Funding Our Future Bond, which was approved by voters in 2018.
The results of the survey and other public input will help inform the City’s team as they work to develop a final concept with a goal of construction beginning in 2024. More information about the project is available at www.2100SouthSLC.org.
