Other Upcoming Projects
Draper Elementary Access Road Draper City and the Canyons School District are working on a second access road to the Draper Elementary School, 1080 E. 12660 South, so that there will be two exit / entry points. Currently, the only access to the school is from the west, off of Fort Street. This single access point limits traffic circulation and flow at the school, and the backup of traffic extends out to and along fort Street. Having one way in and one way out can make it very difficult for emergency vehicles to respond to an emergency.
The new access road will connect the existing 12650 South roadway to Manfield Way (east of the school). This will provide a secondary access point to significantly improve traffic flow during the school’s drop-off and pick-up times as well as during an emergency. Overall, it will provide a safer place for the children to attend and the teachers to work.
The majority of the new roadway will be constructed along the entire north end of the school on property owned by Canyons School District. This will necessitate the construction of an additional parking lot on the school property to replace the existing parking area that will become part of the new roadway. Canyons School District and Draper City will jointly develop an inter-local agreement detailing the responsible costs for each entity.
Construction of this new roadway started this past summer. Due to the scope of this project, the project will be completed summer 2020. If you have any questions about this project, please contact Eric Lundell, Draper City, at (801) 576-6365.
