1000 West Mini Corridor Study
In Summer 2021, Salt Lake City proposed restriping 1000 West to one lane in each direction, in conjunction with a pavement maintenance project (slurry seal). This proposal responded to feedback from the community that 1000 West feels like a highway cutting through the neighborhood.
After receiving more feedback from the community and upon further discussions, we have decided to keep the striping as is for now and engage with the community to develop a more robust plan for 1000 West. The 1000 West “mini-corridor study” will allow Salt Lake City to engage with all stakeholders, including the State Fair Park, residents, and Community Council, whom expressed support for creating a shared vision for the street. We are hopeful the process will result in meaningful changes that go beyond basic pavement markings.

Improvements in 2022
Updates from 2021
A very sincere thank you to everyone who provided feedback in Fall 2021. The feedback we received was incredibly thoughtful, and the comments articulated the values and vision of the community perfectly – take a look at the summary below.
In November 2021, a Stakeholder Committee composed of representatives from the City, community leaders, the Utah State Fair Park, and neighbors, met to review the survey findings from September and October, share thoughts, and plan the next steps. You can view the notes from the stakeholder meeting and survey results below.
We were excited to implement the highly requested all-way stop at 1000 West and 300 North.
What We Heard in 2020
What we heard!
Below is a quick summary of the input we received regarding 1000 West from a survey done in 2020.
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
