In the summer of 2018, we began to replace and rehabilitate aging underground utility lines to improve water and sewer services as part of a two-year effort to reconstruct this segment of 1300 East. Once we complete this first phase of the project in early 2019, we’ll begin to implement several roadway features as part of the final phase. These will include:
- Replacement of deteriorated drive approaches and sidewalk segments
- Replacement of the pavement, curb, and gutter
- Upgrades to storm drains and bus stops
For the 2019 phase, we’ll also consider ways to improve the travel experience for people walking and biking, pending additional technical analysis and input from community members. The project will improve access, mobility, and drainage along this important city thoroughfare, and residents will enjoy more resilient utility services once it’s completed in the fall of 2019.
A $14 million investment to build the project was made possible by Salt Lake City Public Utilities Water and Sewer Enterprise funds, gas tax funds, the City’s Capital Improvement Program, as well as federal funds, which are administered by the Utah Department of Transportation.

What to Expect Throughout Construction:
- Street closures and designated detour routes

- Road construction-related noise, dust, and vibration
- Nighttime work activities at the main intersections
Tips While Driving Through the Work Zone:
- Plan your travel and give yourself extra time
- Use alternate routes such as 700 East, 900 East or 1100 East (not a through-street at 800 South), and Foothill Drive
- Assume equipment operators haven’t seen you until you establish eye contact with them
- Lower your speed while traveling through the work zone and follow all signs and signals
