State Street traffic restrictions starting soon
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities, SLCDPU, advised Utahns that traffic restrictions around downtown State Street could begin as early as April 25. The impact comes because the street requires water line work.
The department advised drivers to avoid the area when possible and find alternate routes. State Street will be closed to through traffic and available to local traffic only.
The SLCDPU said the water line work is scheduled to be completed by August 2022.
Traffic impact will be on:
- State Street, between South Temple and 300 North
- The intersection of State Street and North Temple
- 200 North, between State Street and Main Street
The department said the water line work would “maintain the infrastructure” needed to keep up with downtown Salt Lake’s growth.
Crews will install new water lines, replace residential water meters, and provide sewer rehabilitation.
The water main on State Street between 1st Avenue and 200 North will be replaced. SLCDPU said the main is over 100 years old.
Sewer lines on 200 N and Hillside Ave., from State Street to Main Street will also be worked on.
