New Improvements Planned for Vine Street
Murray City is in the design stage for improvements planned on Vine Street from 900 East to 1300 East. The project design process will continue through summer and is anticipated to be under construction spring 2019. The goal for this improvement project is to provide a safe and efficient roadway that accommodates multiple modes of travel including passenger cars, pedestrians, and bicyclists, and to provide a safe walking route for children attending Woodstock Elementary School.
(Vine Street Improvements - 900 E. to 1300 E.)
The Vine Street Improvement project is part of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, a federally funded local government project that will focus on creating a uniform corridor on this collector street. This will include providing sidewalks, bike lanes, roadway shoulders and a center turn lane. The center turn lane will improve safety by eliminating stopped or slow turning vehicles from through lanes, thus reducing the incidence of rear-end and left-turn crashes. Bike lanes will provide a safe space outside of the vehicle lanes for bicyclist travel and shoulders will allow parking outside of the travel lanes. Murray City is working to minimize the impacts to private property along the entire project area as sections will be required to allow for curb and gutter and sidewalk to be installed to meet design and safety standards.
Ahead of the street improvement work, there will be waterline and gas line work conducted along Vine Street during the summer of 2018. The City will work with the contractors to minimize impacts to traffic flow and driveway access, but delays should be expected.
