On Tuesday, July 5, the 1300 South Phase II Reconstruction Project will begin.
Salt Lake City, in coordination with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), is reconstructing 1300 South between 400 West and 500 West. This is a continuation of the work done in 2014 (from State Street to 400 West). The project includes the intersections, and on and off-ramps.
The project improves safety for pedestrians and cyclists by realigning sidewalks, updating pedestrian ramps, and improving lighting under the I-15 overpasses. A new 16-inch waterline installation, new pedestrian and bicycle path construction on the north side of 1300 South, realignment and restriping to accommodate the new bicycle path, and beautification components, are all parts of this project. The $2.6 million construction cost is funded by bond.
One lane of traffic will be open in each direction to accommodate the first major portion of the work being done. In September, there will be a full closure of the construction area for approximately one-month including the on and off-ramps to I-15. Detours will be in place at that time. It is imperative for everyone’s safety that pedestrians and drivers use the posted detour routes during construction.
