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.
PROJECT UPDATE- APRIL 29th, 2021
Light Pole Removal
Starting as early as Monday, May 3, crews will begin removing light poles along 3900 South. Crews will not replace the existing light poles with new lighting until the completion of the project. Residents and pedestrians should use extra caution when navigating the project area at night.
Right-of-Way (ROW) Preparation
Next week, crews will clear the ROW area between properties and the roadway in preparation for the new improvements on the south side of 3900 South in Segment 3. This work will include the partial removal of driveways. Residents with landscaping that extends into the ROW should remove any items they wish to salvage before the work begins.
Upon completion of this work in Segment 3, residents in Segment 1 can expect this work to transition to their area in the next few weeks.
Early next week, crews will begin pouring curb and gutter in Segment 3. During this work, residents’ driveway access (between 2300 East and 2700 East) will be temporarily closed for up to seven days (starting as early as 7 a.m.) while crews pour new sidewalks, driveways, driveway approaches, and curb and gutter on 3900 South. Please do not walk on or write in the new concrete as it cures. During this work, residents needing frequent access in and out of their driveway should park on side streets. After 5 p.m. and on weekends, residents can park in the temporarily closed lane on the south side of 3900 South in front of their property.
Speed and Lane Restriction
The speed limit on 3900 South is 25 mph between Wasatch Boulevard and 2300 East and will last until the end of the project in the fall. The travel lanes have also been reduced to accommodate the active work zone. These reductions are for the safety of the construction crews and the traveling public. Unified Police Department officers will be in the area enforcing the 25 mph speed limit, and fines are doubled for speeding through a construction zone.
Construction is being broken into three segments:
- Segment 1: Wasatch Boulevard to 3075 East
- Segment 2: 3075 East to 2700 East
- Segment 3: 2700 East to 2300 East
Crews are currently working on the south side of 3900 South
What to Expect:
- Daytime work activities (sunrise to sunset)
- Reduced speed limit
- Lane closures and width restrictions
- Increased noise, dust and vibration
- Sidewalk closures
- Periodic driveway access restrictions
- Street parking limitations
- Traffic delays
Residents and drivers are encouraged to plan for delays on 3900 South and use an alternate route when possible to avoid construction activities.

Future 3900 South Cross Section (2300 E to Wasatch Blvd)
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 Version OptionsCurrent ProjectsHeadline3900 SOUTH RECONSTRUCTION.
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.

900 East improvements
Millcreek plans to improve 900 East from 4500 South to 3900 South to enhance this critical corridor and match the road north of 3900 South. Improvements will include new asphalt, widened shoulders/bike lanes, consistent curb and gutter, consistent sidewalks, and new streetlights.
View the 900 East Improvements presentation delivered at a Public Open House held May 13, 2021.

- 2020- Environmental Clearance
- Spring 2021- Design
- Summer/Fall 2021- Right-of-Way
- 2022- Construction
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will improve I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East and I-215 between 3300 South and 4500 South in Salt Lake County. Construction will start as early as mid-May 2021 and continue through late 2022. This project is being done to replace aging infrastructure, reduce congestion and enhance safety.
Improvements will include:
- New concrete pavement on I-80 and I-215
- One new lane on eastbound I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East
- Demolition and reconstruction of the 1300 East and 1700 East bridges over I-80
- Demolition and reconstruction of the I-80 bridge over 2000 East
- Widening of the I-80 bridge over 2300 East to accommodate the new eastbound lane
- Improvements to existing bike and pedestrian crossings at I-80
Millcreek is proposing a roundabout at Upland Drive and Virginia Way to address traffic congestion and improve safety. In addition, the project would construct a raised median at the Birch Drive and Upland Drive intersection and a mid-block signalized pedestrian crossing west of Birch Drive. The project would also install new roadway signage and pavement markings, modify utilities and drainage systems (where necessary), and provide new sidewalks and bike routes.
The city is currently completing an environmental study to understand project impacts and obtain federal funding. The project team will present information about this project at the Millcreek City Council meeting on Monday, October 12. The meeting will be live-streamed on the Millcreek City website.

LOCAL LINK TRANSPORTATION STUDY
We teamed up with Salt Lake City, South Salt Lake and the City of Holladay on Local Link to improve connectivity between our cities through walking, biking and transit solutions. We worked together to develop transportation priorities to guide the effort and influence its outcomes.
The ongoing transit study is being done to address population and traffic projections for 2050, since knowing we won’t be able to rely on cars alone to keep people moving between Sugar House, Millcreek and Holladay in the future.
The study team has gathered data and analyzed four types of transit: streetcar, light rail, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and enhanced bus along two main routes: 1300 East and Highland Drive. Now, we need your help to understand which option best meets the needs of our communities in the future.
Local Link is the final planning effort before significant investments are made! Visit locallinkstudy.com today to take the survey and make sure your voice is heard. The survey will close April 22, 2021!
