Major Road Construction Projects
Detour Map of summer road construction projects
Work has begun to reconstruct 3.2 miles of Suncrest Drive from Traverse Ridge Rd. to the Draper City limits. This project has an anticipated completion date of November 1. Two lanes of traffic will be open throughout the duration of the project. Traffic delays should be minimal. The speed limit has been reduced to 30 mph through the construction area. Bikers are encouraged to avoid this area during construction.
A new storm drain line will be installed on Manilla Dr. and the road will be reconstructed from Manti Dr. to Traverse Ridge Rd. Construction will start on May 8 and should be completed by the end of June. This section of Manilla Drive will be open to local traffic only during construction. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes to avoid the construction zone.
13800 South Storm Drain
Construction has begun to install a new storm drain line between 300 East and the East Jordan Canal. The project should be completed by the end of May. Traffic through the construction zone will be limited to one lane. One-way traffic through this area will be controlled by temporary traffic signals. Traffic delays are expected, but should be minimal during non-rush hour periods. Motorists are encouraged to avoid this area during the rush hour periods, if possible.
Bangerter Parkway and 13800 South Intersection
This federally funded project will widen the intersection at Bangerter Parkway and 13800 South. New traffic lanes will be added in each of the four legs of the intersection to increase the capacity and traffic flow in all directions. It is anticipated that construction will start in June and be completed by October. The magnitude of the impact to traffic at this intersection are not yet known. More information on this project will be coming soon.
Willow Springs Lane
Sections of Willow Springs Lane between 700 East and Fort Street will be closed for reconstruction form June 8th to July 14th. Notices of the closures and alternate detours will be provided prior to the closures. More information on this project will be coming soon.
It is anticipated that the project to widen and extend 13200 South from the Draper Park Middle School to Highland Drive will begin in May or June and be completed by the end of September. Traffic delays are expected to be minor during construction. More information on this project will be coming soon.
Pioneer Road from 600 East to 700 East and portions of 700 East (north and south of Pioneer Road) will be widened and curb, gutter and sidewalk will be added through these areas. Alternating closures of Pioneer Road and 700 East may occur throughout the project, with one of the roadways always open through the intersection. Notices of the closures and alternate detours will be provided prior to the closures. It is anticipated that construction will begin in June and be completed by the end of September. More information on this project will be coming soon.
Highland Drive Storm Drain
The existing storm drain in this area is deficient and does not adequately drain storm water when a large storm event occurs. This project will install main line storm water collection piping for a section of Highland Dr.
