11 Mar 2700 South Update from SLC
Based on feedback we received at a recently held community meeting, the 2700 South Reconstruction Project Team decided to reduce the number of proposed raised crosswalks, between 1300 East and Preston Street, from seven to three.
The three raised crosswalks will be placed at their existing locations:
- Dearborn Street
- Kenwood Street
- Melbourne Street
The crosswalk at 1700 East will remain marked as it is currently. This street design will improve pedestrian safety and visibility near the school zones.
The decision was made to balance what we heard from residents, neighbors, and school community council members, which still allows us to follow our long-range transportation plans. As part of the project, parking will still be consolidated to the south side of the street to accommodate bike lanes in both directions. The revised design will provide a safer, smooth, and more accessible street for all travelers.
You are invited to attend a public meeting to hear more about this update:
Where: Highland Park Elementary, 1738 East 2700 South
