Surface Treatment

Survey results published and Draft Design available for review!


This street will receive a surface treatment in the summer of 2020. Access & parking will be restricted for a maximum of 6 daytime hours on 1-3 days. There may be changes to striping & markings.

Community Input About This Street

In Spring 2020, Salt Lake City gathered community input for possible changes to 1000 West; our major takeaways from our survey are summarized below.

While the scope of this project is to resurface the street and address potential improvements achieved through restriping, the survey asked a variety of questions that helps the City better understand how people use the street, challenges they experience, and things they enjoy about the street. While not all issues and feedback can be addressed through this specific project (and may not be relevant to street and transportation projects), this community input provides context, helps identify themes, and can inform future projects.

Common themes in the survey responses:

  • Many respondents noted that the level of traffic does not warrant the number of travel lanes, although it was noted that events at the Fairgrounds generate a lot of activity and on-street parking demand.
  • The width of the street and infrequent intersection control (e.g. stop signs) can result in speeding vehicles.
  • There were several suggestions to repurpose space to take advantage of street width, including:
    • median for greening and traffic calming
    • multi-use pathway
    • protected bike lanes
    • crosswalks improvements related to visibility, reduced crossing distance/exposure

Thank you to everyone who took the survey!


Draft Designs

The survey helped inform our Draft Designs which can be viewed below. Please review the Draft Designs and let us know what you think. This draft design will be available for review until Sunday, May 10th.  Please send us any comments you may have before that time.  Comment by sending an email to: StreetResurfacing@slcgov.com.

We have developed two concepts for 1000 West: a median option and a buffered bike lane option. *Click to expand the green bar below to learn more about each option.*

Important Note: Replacing the existing roadway striping is an option. For the two reconfiguration alternatives, vehicle travel lanes would be reduced from two to one in each direction. The amount of traffic that uses 1000 West could be adequately accommodated in the lane reconfiguration of one vehicle lane in each direction. On-street parking would not be impacted by any options.

Median Option

This concept would delineate a wide center median and reduce vehicle travel lanes in each direction.  We realize that a painted median does not provide the transformative benefits of a planted median. However, by piloting the lane median concept with striping re-configuration, we have an opportunity to test it out and make refinements based on experience and feedback. If it is successful as a pilot, it would be the first step in a process to implement more transformational changes. The design concept is shown between North Temple and 300 N but represents a treatment that we are considering between 300 N to 600 N as well. This would not impact on-street parking.

Buffered Bike Lane Option

This concept would reduce vehicle travel lanes in each direction and provide buffered bike lanes. The buffer space adjacent to the bike lanes improve cyclists comfort and safety. Initially the buffer will be striped with paint. This would not impact on-street parking.
