Update to the 1700 South Storm Drain – 2100 East to Wasatch Hollow Project

Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities (SLCDPU) will build a new storm drain from 1700 South and 2100 East to Wasatch Hollow. SLCDPU is wrapping up engineering and design based off community feedback.  The figure below shows the path of the storm drain (in blue).  SLCDPU anticipates construction to start in the fall of 2020 and to wrap up over the summer of 2021.  

 

It is the goal of SLCDPU to minimize any unnecessary impact caused by construction. Much of the work will take place within existing roadway and through the open area of Wasatch Hollow along the access road. Short-term road closures, one way traffic, and detours will be required. Before construction activities begin, notification will be coordinated through the contractor, with each resident, in the areas adjacent to the work. Work within Wasatch Hollow will impact access to the park off 1700 East. Construction of this storm drain will require an open cut in the roadway. Open cut construction will impact access and traffic flow restrictions could affect residences within and around the project area. Traffic will be restricted adjacent to the contractor’s work area. Home and business accesses will remain open. The public may be required to cross steel plates that will cover trenches. Every effort will be made to coordinate any closure or access restrictions with adjacent businesses.
