Starting in October 2021, work began to upgrade the 3000 East corridor. Improvements will include intersection expansions, widening roads, adding curb, gutter and sidewalk and improving Active Transportation. The six-phase plan is estimated to take up to two years to complete.
Current Schedule: June 13 - 23
Phase 1: ROADS OPENING - The new 1450 South extension is opening on June 21. With the concrete powder shortage, pouring the new sidewalk has been a slow process, but is anticipated to be finished by June 21. In addition, 1580 South will be opening from 3210 East to where it intersects with the 1450 South extension. (See map) The detours in this area will also be removed and Blue Quartz Dr. and other local streets will be flowing in a normal traffic pattern.*
ROAD CLOSED - The road closure on 1580 South from 3000 East to 3210 East will be in place until the first week of July 2022. In addition, the southbound left turn from 3000 East onto 1580 South next to the new Red Cliffs Temple is non-functioning as part of this closure
Phase I of the 3000 East Upgrades is approximately 85% finished.
An alternate route to the Crimson Cliffs High School area is 2450 South. It is open with roadbase surfaces in several sections.
Please follow the marked detours and do not use neighborhood streets as thoroughfares. Let’s keep everyone safe by using the designated detours and observing posted speed limits.
Traffic patterns on 3000 East from 1450 South to 1580 South continue to be adjusted as crews perform needed utility relocations. Slow down and stay in your designated lane of travel.
This project is anticipated to be completed around the end of July 2022.
