Salt Lake City Transportation and Engineering contracted with WCG to modify 2000 East to improve bicycle and pedestrian mobility. Based on the needs identified, WCG completed a design to reconstruct approximately 1 mile of 2000 East using full-depth asphalt reclamation, replacing damaged curb, gutter, sidewalk, and improved bicycle accommodations along the corridor. Our team worked with SLC and the public to consider various intersection alternatives at Parley’s Canyon Boulevard and designed a roundabout that improved traffic operations and safety. The project included traffic analysis, survey, public involvement, ROW design and acquisition, drainage and irrigation improvements, public and private utility coordination, and erosion control design. Our team worked through driveway design and access challenges associated with the roadway widening for the three-lane sections. To address irrigation improvement impacts and drainage, our design included uphill irrigation flows and a linear detention system that reduced runoff and enhanced water quality.
