Construction along 300 South (US89) began in early April and is on schedule to be completed in Fall 2016. The project will improve mobility in the area by offering better transportation options for all kinds of road users, including improved pavement, new bike lanes, and a wider multi-use path. So far, crews have reconstructed the roadway and added new concrete paving on the south side of 300 South from 100 West to 400 East. Additionally, new storm drain, curb, gutter, sidewalks, and driveway accesses are being constructed. As crews have been moving along the corridor, they have also worked to improve the sewer and water mains and are installing new street lights.
Crews are completing concrete paving along this section of 300 South and will begin shifting work to the north side of the road in late July. Traffic will be shifted to the south side of 300 South while work occurs on the north side, between 100 West and 400 East. A single lane will be maintained in each direction. Motorists should be prepared for a new traffic configuration.
In addition to the work between 100 West and 400 East, crews have made significant progress along 300 South between 400 and 700 East, having recently completed storm drain, sewer and water line replacement. Currently, crews are rebuilding the roadway in preparation for concrete paving later this month.
Moving forward, the project will also add raised medians, parkstrips and an 8′ pedestrian/bicycle path along the north side of 300 South with bicycle lanes on both shoulders. A new traffic signal will be added at 400 East along with improved pedestrian and bicycle crossings at 200 East and 600 East.
While these improvements are made and construction continues, businesses along the corridor will remain open and accessible. So don’t forget to support your favorite local businesses along 300 South over the coming months!
