Murray City crews and contractors have completed several roadway improvements projects this past summer. Full road reconstructions occurred at 6410 South, Joma Street, Westridge Street, La Salle Drive (6000 South), 600 West off La Salle Drive, and Jamaica Street. In addition to full road reconstructions, mill and overlay projects were completed at 5600 South from State Street to 900 East, 4800 South from 600W to 150 West, 300 West from 6500 South to Midvale, and Woodoak Lane from Vine Street to Executive Park Drive. These mill and overlays will extend the life of the roadways 10-15 years.
Various safety and maintenance projects were completed. This includes the bridge deck overlay of Cottonwood Street over 5300 South; signal projects at Vine Street and Commerce Drive, Vine Street and Murray Boulevard, and 5900 South and 700 West; as well as sidewalk safety and drainage repairs on Lucky Clover Lane.
Work has begun on the Hanauer Street alignment in the Murray City Center District. This new road alignment includes storm drain, sewer, and water utilities and will be completed over the next few months, weather permitting.
The design of Vine Street from 1300 East to the Van Winkle Expressway is progressing. A survey was distributed in August seeking input from Vine Street users on the future alignment of the roadway between 1500 East and 1800 East where Vine Street narrows and lacks safe pedestrian access. The results of the survey are posted here: https://murray.utah.gov/1861/Vine-Street-1300-East-to-Van-Winkle-Expr.
Murray City is continuing the process of updating the City’s Transportation Plan. This plan evaluates the current and future of travel through the city whether it is by walking, biking, driving, public transit or other modes. The city sought input on transportation concerns from residents and commuters alike in a survey this past summer. Survey results and more information can be found at www.murraytransportationplan.com.
