Roadwork on the 1300 East Improvement project in Sandy from Creek Road to 10500 South began in late May and is moving along smoothly. The project team consists of Staker Parson Companies of Salt Lake City as general contractor and design engineer Project Engineering Consultants of West Jordan, along with URS Corp. providing construction oversight.
The $10.9 million project will improve safety and traffic flow, enhance pedestrian facilities, and add aesthetic features along the corridor. Project elements include new curb and gutter, sidewalk, park strip, landscaped raised medians, new roadway paving, street lighting, and decorative walls along the back facing residential properties. Also included in this project are major improvements to the intersection of 1300 East and Sego Lily Drive.
Crews have begun replacing sidewalks, pedestrian ramps, and residential walls on the north end of the corridor near Creek Road. Additionally, crews are replacing the signals at High Point Parkway (8020 South) and 8600 South. The project is set for completion in fall 2010.
