Construction continues on 2100 South – and it might stink

Beginning in September, a section will be built near Sugar House Park.

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Road construction on Highland Drive, just south of 2100 South, in Salt Lake City on Thursday, June 1, 2023. Construction will begin near 2100 South beginning September to upgrade an under-carriageway sewer .

A main artery of Sugar House gets another upgrade.

Teams will begin work next month to replace a roughly 100-year-old sewer line under 2100 South between Highland Drive and Yuma Street, a section that runs in front of Sugar House Park.

Construction will include the closure of side streets along 2100 South, as well as short-term access road closures and usual measures “Noise, vibration, odor and dust” that accompanies city improvement projects, according to a mailer sent to nearby residents.

(Salt Lake City Public Utilities) The city will begin construction in September to upgrade the sewer system under a portion of 2100 South at Sugar House.

Construction for Phase 1 of the project—focusing on the portion of 2100 South between Highland Drive and View Street—will take place from September through April 2024.

The next phase of the project — focusing on 2100 South between 1400 East and 2000 East — will begin in November and last through fall 2024.

According to the project’s website, the city plans to limit traffic along the 2100 southeast of 1300 east to one lane each way while teams work to replace the water and sewer lines.

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) This section of 2100 South, near the entrance to Sugar House Park, will be under construction while teams work to replace an old sewer line.

Crews hope to ensure one lane of traffic in each direction along the road west of 1300 East, but there is a risk of increased noise and odor pollution from the proposed “underground pipe burning” construction.

According to the project website, the construction site is also likely to affect secondary roads north and south of 2100 South as motorists try to avoid the construction site. Street parking along 2100 South and on side streets adjacent to the project will also be removed.

Construction will continue on another project along 2100 South next year. Officials announced in May their chosen concept for the road between 700 East and 1300 East, which will make 2100 South four lanes and then narrow to two lanes between 1000 East and McClelland Streets.
