1000 West Mini Corridor Study

1000 West

Mini Corridor Study

Project Update: December 03, 2021

A very sincere thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the first phase of engagement for the 1000 West mini corridor study. The feedback we received was incredibly thoughtful, and the comments articulated the values and vision of the community perfectly. 

Since launching the study, we have a few project updates to share:

During the State Fair in September the project team collected traffic data. The results from the analysis can be found under “What we heard” accordion.

At the end of November, the Stakeholder Committee, which includes representatives from the City, community leaders, the Utah State Fair Park, and neighbors, met to review the survey findings from September and October, share final thoughts, and plan the next steps. You can view the notes from the stakeholder meeting and survey results below. We are also excited to announce the highly asked-for four-way stop at 1000 West and 300 North has been installed.

The next phase of the vision plan for 1000 West will incorporate two resident-requested capital improvement projects (details coming soon). 

Spring 2022, we will kick off the next round of conversations and engagement for the study.

Project Overview

Project Overview

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 24 hours in advance. Again, the striping will stay the same on 1000 West.

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
