1000 West Corridor Plan

1000 West Corridor Plan

Project Update (July 2023):

Please give us your feedback on the proposed intersection designs on 1000 West!

The City has been considering how to respond to requests to calm traffic, improve crossings, create more appeal, and balance the local and regional transportation functions of the street.

Rather than narrow the street, our proposed approach focuses on intersections at 500 North, 400 North, and 300 North. The intersection features work together to create systematic and coordinated improvements that help achieve the project goals. Funding is available for the 500 North intersection, whereas the other intersections still need to secure funds and therefore may be built in future phases. This is an important step in establishing the vision for the street that sets the stage for future investment.

Let us know what you think by taking the survey!


Project Background

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
