The 3900 South reconstruction project will complete the East-West active transportation corridor between I-215 and 2300 E. This project is co-sponsored by Millcreek and City of Holladay. This section of roadway has intermittent sidewalk, utility poles in the asphalt shoulder, open irrigation/Storm Drain ditch, and no bicycle facility, all of which creates an unsafe transportation environment. By developing improvements for continuous sidewalk, dedicated bike lanes, and enhanced UTA bus stops, it is anticipated that active transportation will grow significantly along the corridor.
The project aligns with the community’s vision for 3900 South to create a safe and aesthetically pleasing corridor that is accommodating for all motorists and pedestrians. The project leverages $8.7 million in grants obtained from Salt Lake County and the federal government, and will include continuous sidewalks, curb and gutter, storm drains, improved pedestrian crossings, dedicated bike lanes and enhanced UTA bus stops.
The Environmental Study was completed in August 2019. See below for updates.
The design phase of the 3900 South project is complete. Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) right-of-way agents are completing the last few outstanding agreements, and it is expected that we will be able to advertise the project within the first few weeks of June 2020 and select a contractor this summer.
However, the aging gas and water lines that run under the road will be receiving much-needed upgrades prior to construction work beginning. Dominion Energy and Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities will work on these lines through the remainder of this year, with full roadway reconstruction of 3900 South slated to begin in early 2021.
Improving this important corridor in our city remains top priority, and we want to do it right. By coordinating the reconstruction with the major utility upgrades, we can avoid the need to cut into the new road after the project is finished in order to repair or replace the 80+ year old gas line. We are confident that this approach will allow us to provide a high-quality, long-lasting roadway to the community, complete with modern utilities.
In the meantime, residents can expect to see gas and water crews in the area, beginning their work at the east end of 3900 South, between 3200 East and I-215, and moving west. Two lanes of traffic will remain open at all times during their work.

The Cities of Millcreek and Holladay hosted an open house on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019 at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. City and project representatives were available to answers questions regarding design, right of way and project next steps. If you were unable to attend the meeting, you can view the open house materials here UPDATES UPDATES UPDATES UPDATES.
The project includes a full depth reconstruction of 3900 South, the addition of curb, gutter, sidewalk, pedestrian safety improvements and enhanced UTA bus stops. A bike lane will be added on both sides of the corridor that will merge into shared lanes at each intersection.
As part of this project, minor property acquisitions and temporary construction easements along the corridor will be necessary. To learn more about potential impacts to your property, please contact the project team.

Local Link transportation study
Millcreek is teaming up with Salt Lake City, City of Holladay and South Salt Lake on Local Link to learn how you travel in and around your community and to develop innovative, new transportation types for more convenient, connected trips.
We’re launching two studies as part of this effort: a circulation study analyzing biking and walking connections into the Sugar House Business District, and a transit alternatives analysis (AA) examining transportation between Sugar House and Millcreek with an extension to Holladay.
You know your community and lifestyle. We can’t come up with the ideal scenario to better link these cities without your help. Visit locallinkstudy.com to learn more, provide feedback and sign up for updates to stay involved throughout the studies.
