7000 South Utility Project - Phase 1, 2 and 3 Project Description
The City of West Jordan is managing three phases of work along 7000 South over the next two years to complete upgrades to various utility systems, including the storm water collection system, sanitary sewer collection system, culinary water distribution system, and to install a secondary water transmission system.
Storm Drain: The storm drain improvements will be performed between the Jordan River and Constitution Park (3200 West). Improvements include installing an upgraded pipeline and box culvert, and additional water collection boxes, and creating a detention basin at Constitution Park. These changes will increase storm drain capacity and improve drainage on 7000 South.
Sanitary Sewer: The sewer improvements will be performed between 1300 West and Bangerter Highway. Improvements include upgrading and consolidating existing pipes.
Culinary Water: Culinary water improvements will be performed between 1300 West and Redwood Road. Improvements include installing upgraded lines to increase water capacity, operational control and fire overage in this area.
Secondary Water Transmission Pipeline: A secondary water transmission pipeline will be installed between South Valley Water Reclamation Facility and the irrigation pond at the West Jordan Soccer Complex. The reclaimed water will be combined with groundwater and canal water from Utah Lake to provide an additional outdoor water source during the summer.
Phase Limits and Tentative Construction Timelines:
Phase 1 – Jordan River to 1300 West; February through summer 2016
Phase 2 – 1300 West to 1905 West: TBD
Phase 3 – 1905 West to Bangerter Highway; TBD
7000 South Utility Project, Phase 1 7000 S -Jordan River to 1300 West
January 29-June 29 Informational Flier Overview
Crews will upgrade storm drains on 7000 South between 1300 West and the Jordan River from February through June. The work includes removing and replacing pipes under the westbound lanes and a box culvert near the Jordan River. This project will improve roadway drainage and enhance safety for drivers.
During construction, 7000 South will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Heavy delays are expected, use alternate routes (700 West to 7800 South and Bingham Junction Boulevard to 7800 South). Local business accesses will be maintained throughout the project. Check the UDOT traffic app for real-time information on road congestion.
Limited closure of the Jordan River Parkway Trail of up to 90 days is required to place the new outfall to the Jordan River. This trail closed February 4, there is no trail access from 6200 South (Winchester) to 7000 South.
What to Expect
A long-term traffic shift is scheduled to start as early as Tuesday, Feb. 16 and last for approximately four months. Westbound lanes will be closed, all traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
The traffic shift will be in place 24-hours a day, seven days a week, due to open trenches in the roadway.
The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone.
Delays of up to one hour are expected, use alternate routes.
Driveway and business access will be limited on 70000 South. The project team will work closely with property owners to maintain one open access at all times.
Left turns will be limited in the project area to keep traffic moving.
Crews will work Monday through Friday and weekends as needed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Residents and businesses may experience occasional noise, dust and vibration during work hours.

Bangerter Highway Interchanges
UDOT project page
The Utah Department of Transportation is taking more steps toward slowly converting Bangerter Highway into a freeway.
UDOT has launched an environmental study needed to convert four intersections into freeway-like interchanges, at 5400 South, 7000 South, 9000 South and 11400 South.
Pending the outcome of the study, conversion of those intersections into interchanges is expected to begin next year — and UDOT seeks completion by the fall of 2018. For additional information go to www.udot.utah.gov/go/bangerterstudy.
