Beginning Monday, November 27 the east side of the 2000 South intersection will be opened and traffic on 3000 East will be shifted east onto the new pavement to allow for crews to finish paving on 3000 East.
The west side access from 2000 South to 3000 East will be closed. Traffic at the west side of the intersection will be detoured to Rasmussen Drive to access 3000 East. Pedestrian access will be available at the 2000 South and 3000 East intersection, and the crossing guard will continue to be present at the normal times.
Crews will be grading and paving between the existing and the new asphalt on 3000 East. It is anticipated this work will take approximately two weeks, weather permitting.
All major underground utility work is finished and the majority of the curb & gutter has been placed! The contractor is now placing, compacting, and grading the final lifts of roadbase needed for the new lanes of 3000 East. Work is also continuing to prepare the subgrade for the new walking trail that will follow the east side of the road.
Final preparations for the paving and landscaping improvements will begin within the next couple of weeks.
It is anticipated the 2000 South intersection will be paved and operational by the end of November - weather permitting. All major construction on the Phase 4 Improvements to 3000 East will be completed by the end of 2023.*
When finished, 3000 East from 1580 South to 2000 South will have two lanes in each direction with a center turn lane. A new Active Transportation Trail will run along the east side separated from 3000 East with landscaping and an area for drainage.
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.
The current schedule shows Phase 4 of the project being completed this Fall barring any unforeseen circumstances.
Please remember, the entire construction zone is active with heavy equipment and materials. No bike, pedestrian or motor vehicle access in the area is permitted. Let’s keep everyone safe.
The westside access from 2000 South, Blue Herron and Blue Quartz to 3000 East will remain closed until the improvements are complete.
Traffic patterns will stay the same with traffic shifted to the west on 3000 East, and the speed limit is reduced to 30 mph.
Please obey the posted speed limit and follow all traffic control. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes when appropriate.
Thank you for your patience.
