UDOT and South Salt Lake City Council to Make Safety Improvements to 3300 South Near Homeless Resource Center

Additional lights, signals, and outreach planned to enhance pedestrian safety in the area 

SALT LAKE CITY (Jan. 6, 2020) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and South Salt Lake City is installing several improvements to enhance safety for pedestrians along 3300 South near the new South Salt Lake homeless resource center. 

New electronic message signs were installed last weekend that advise drivers to use caution and be alert for pedestrians. Then over the next several months UDOT will be adding signs, signals and lighting in the area of 3300 South and 1000 West and conducting safety-related outreach among vulnerable populations in the area.

Additional improvements will include:

  • A new pedestrian-activated signal to stop traffic for foot traffic to cross
  • Additional lighting at nearby intersections and along the road 
  • Relocation of the nearby UTA transit stop 
  • New portable signs to alert drivers of their current speed
  • Safety-focused outreach to clients at the homeless resource center
  • Ongoing coordination with South Salt Lake law enforcement and public works

UDOT will continue to collaborate with South Salt Lake City leaders on improving the area. 

UDOT is committed to keeping Utah roads as safe as possible. Whenever a serious crash occurs, UDOT engineers review the incident to understand what factors were involved and what potential measures can be implemented to prevent similar crashes in the future.
