PROJECT UPDATE (updated 7/30/2020) – We’re currently in the design and implementation phase.
300 West Reconstruction
In 2021 and 2022, we’ll be reconstructing 300 West, from 900 South to 2100 South. The project limits may extend farther north up to 500 South, but this possibility is dependent upon additional available funding at the time of construction. Project improvements will include upgrades to curb and gutter to improve drainage, upgrades to sidewalks and bus stops to increase safety and access for people walking and taking transit, in addition to other street enhancements to increase mobility, transportation options, and air quality.
The Funding Our Future street reconstruction projects will build safer, more accessible and more welcoming streets that accommodate all ages and abilities. These transformative projects will allow for future growth and changes in transportation while focusing on moving people – not just cars. With input from the community at every stage, Funding Our Future projects are designed to not only solve transportation problems, but also beautify the communities they serve, promote public health, and create a more sustainable environment.
As part of the decision-making process for the redesign of the new street, we’ll incorporate the results obtained from the project survey, along with public comments, technical analysis, safety data, and we’ll also follow the city’s Complete Streets Ordinance, Transportation Plans, Climate 2040 Plan, in addition to Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) guidelines.
What is next?
We are currently in the design and implementation phase in the project timeline (see below). Further information on timeline and impacts will continue to be updated on this webpage.
· Safer and more accessible roadway for bicycle, pedestrian, and alternative modes of movement
· Reduced barriers to access and promote accessibility and active transportation
· Welcoming and attractive corridor that provides infrastructure to support future growth and economic development
