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.
The slurry seal activities are expected sometime in August to repair potholes and other cracks in the pavement. All adjacent homes will receive a door hanger notification 24hrs in advance. Again, the striping will stay the same on 1000 West.

We Need Your Feedback!
Building on the feedback from the area residents and stakeholders we are now asking for community members to share their experience using 1000 West (600 North to North Temple). Please click the links below to provide input!

What We Heard in 2020!
What we heard!
Below is a quick summary of the input we received regarding 1000 W 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
