1100 East Reconstruction: 900 South to Logan Ave (1600 South)
For questions or concerns about the project, call the Public Information Team at 385-743-8405, email 1100East@slcgov.com, or click here to sign up for 1100 East project email updates.
In 2021, Salt Lake City Transportation and Engineering identified a need to improve 1100 East between 900 South and Logan Avenue (1600 South). This project will reconstruct roadway pavement, sidewalks, and gutters; and provide safety improvements, traffic calming features, and bicycle lanes along the corridor.
Further information on the construction timeline and impacts will be available on this webpage and through the project email list as we get closer to construction.
|Summer 2021||Project Kickoff|
|Fall/Winter 2021||Community Outreach/Feedback|
|Fall-Winter 2022||Finalizing Design|
Since Fall 2021, the project team has been working with the community to identify concerns and gather input. The key feedback we heard from the public about the project included a desire for traffic calming, concerns about parked vehicles obstructing the view of oncoming traffic, and a need for bicycle infrastructure along 1100 East. This input has informed the final project design for the 1100 East corridor. The project team incorporated several suggested design elements and finalized the plan in September 2022.
1100 East from 900 South to Logan Avenue (1600 South) is scheduled to be reconstructed beginning Spring 2023 and is anticipated to be completed Fall 2023. The project schedule is subject to change due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.
The final design incorporates the following elements:
- Intersection safety improvements
- Hybrid protected bike intersections
- Buffered bike lanes
- On-street parking reductions
- Bus stop adjustments
Notices outlining construction impacts will be distributed throughout the corridor ahead of construction in Spring 2023.

Additional Proposed Design Changes
Proposed Design Changes
Hybrid Protected Bike Intersection: 900 South to Logan Avenue
Hybrid protected bike intersections will be added along 1100 East from 900 South to Logan Avenue. These treatments will result in a lateral shifts in vehicle traffic which is expected to help slow vehicles on the roadway. The hybrid protected bike intersection treatment will be added to the following intersections:
- Michigan Avenue
- Yale Avenue
- Princeton Avenue
- Harrison Avenue (including a raised intersection)
- Roosevelt Avenue
- Emerson Avenue
- Kensington Avenue
- Bryan Avenue
Example of Intersection Treatment: Kensington Avenue
The currently existing bike lane will be converted into a buffered bike lane to allow for more comfort for cyclists and to calm vehicle traffic. The intersection treatment shown below will be a part of the future Kensington Neighborhood Byway.
1300 South to Harrison Avenue
The intersection of 1100 East and Harrison Avenue is located near Emerson Elementary and represents the southern crossing of the McClelland Trail. In addition to curb-extensions on Harrison Avenue at the intersection, we hope to implement a raised intersection treatment with protected bike lanes to make it safer for pedestrians and calm traffic. The protected bike lanes will allow the current bike lane arrangement to continue through intersection without interference from the curb extensions. Note: the area between Harrison and McClelland Trail crossing north of 1300 South will not have a buffer, but will instead be a standard bike lane.
Bus Stop Changes
In order to incorporate the new design concepts along 1100 East, there are planned changes to the configuration of the bus stops along the corridor. Bus stops will be removed on both sides of the street at Michigan Avenue, Princeton Avenue, and Roosevelt Avenue. One stop will be removed on the west side of 1100 East at Logan Avenue. New bus stops will be installed to the north and south of 1300 South and the bus stops at Kensington Avenue will be moved closer to mid-block in order to work with the protected intersections.
Overview of Community Engagement
Our team engaged with the community through many different methods in order to collect different perspectives on the future of this project. We canvassed the surrounding neighborhoods with fliers, sent out postcards, and posted yard signs along the corridor. Along with the canvassing efforts, we provided the residents a chance to take a survey and respond to our goals and intentions. We also attended East Liberty Park Community Organization community meetings to provide context on the initial design concepts.
What We Heard
After engaging with the community, our team reviewed the feedback. The key messages we heard from the public about the project were: a desire for traffic calming and reducing the instances of speeding, concerns about vehicles parking too close to intersections and obstructing the view of oncoming traffic, and a need for missing bicycle infrastructure along 1100 East.
East Liberty Park Community Organization Meeting
The 1100 East Project Manager, Lynn Jacobs, presented to the East Liberty Park Community Organization (ELPCO) in January 2022. Watch the presentation video below; the 1100 East portion begins at the 52 minute mark.
This project is funded through the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future street reconstruction bond.
Other Area Project – Highland Drive/1100 East
As part of the Funding our Future bond, Salt Lake City will reconstruct Highland Drive/1100 East from Warnock Street (just south of Interstate 80) to Logan Avenue (just south of 1700 South) in 2023 and 2024.
Construction on Highland Drive from I-80 to 2100 South and the Highland Drive/2100 South intersection is anticipated in 2023. Highland Drive can be reduced to one lane southbound throughout this time.
Reconstruction from 2100 South to the north is planned in 2024, aside from the work associated with the intersection mentioned above.
Further information on the construction timeline and impacts will be available on this webpage and through the project email list as we get closer to construction. The project schedule is subject to change due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.
