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- Aug. 27, 2020
The 3900 South Improvements project team is scheduled to select a contractor this fall. Depending on weather conditions, winter construction is possible but would be minimal. Full road reconstruction is scheduled to begin in early 2021.
In preparation for the road reconstruction, the gas and water lines that run under 3900 South are receiving much-needed upgrades. Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities is working on the water system between 3180 East and Wasatch Boulevard between now and mid-October. Dominion Energy is currently working on the natural gas line between 2300 East and Wasatch Boulevard and is scheduled to wrap up in mid-November.
Residents are encouraged to plan for delays on 3900 South and use alternate routes to avoid the utility work.
Improving this important corridor in our city remains top priority, and we want to do it right. By completing these major utility upgrades prior to road reconstruction, we can avoid the need to cut into the new road after the project is finished to repair or replace the aging gas and water lines. We are confident that this approach will allow us to provide a high-quality, long-lasting roadway to the community, complete with modern utilities.

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.

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.

mid-Valley Active Transportation Plan
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.
