Salt Lake County and West Valley City are conducting a study to evaluate improvements on 4700 South, from 4000 West to 5600 West. The environmental phase of the project will evaluate existing conditions, analyze traffic, recommend improvements for 4700 South, prepare an environmental document, and complete preliminary design.
The 4700 South project is a joint project with Salt Lake County and West Valley City in cooperation with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and Wasatch Front Regional Council. Currently, the project team is evaluating existing conditions and gathering data that will be used to complete the WFRC study. We are working closely with the local community councils and will hold a public meeting in November of 2014. This website will be updated as additional information becomes available.
Project elements that will be evaluated include:
• Capacity improvements
• Bicycle and pedestrian facilities
• Intersection improvements at 5600 W
• Intersection improvements at 4000 W
Why is an Environmental Study Needed?
An environmental study entails evaluating impacts to multiple categories including historic aspects, cultural, wetlands impacts, archaeological, and architectural. These must be cleared during the environmental phase and are then considered along with traffic volumes, the need for roadway improvements, and public input to determine project design.
An environmental study is required to evaluate potential impacts from a proposed project and solicit public input. The first step for this project will be to evaluate future travel demand and identify if additional capacity is needed. The next step is to complete preliminary engineering design and identify the impact footprint. Various kinds of impacts are considered--including but not limited to right-of-way acquisition, noise, air quality, historic resources, water resources, and community impacts.
