Construction is continuing on the new Salt Lake City Public Utilities Water Reclamation Facility, started in 2020 and expected to be in service in 2025. Public Utilities has written their Summer 2022 update on the project which can be seen HERE.


State Street Waterline Project - Project Updates as of July 7, 2022:  Sewer work on 200 North, between State Street and Main Street, began Tuesday, July 5 and is anticipated to last up to three weeks. During this work, 200 North will be open to resident traffic only and there will be no on-street parking. As work continues, lane configurations at the intersection of North Temple and State Street will shift slightly to accommodate various water tie-ins. Drivers should use extreme caution, pay attention to posted signage and traffic barrels, and avoid the area whenever possible. The work should be completed by the end of August.  https://www.statestreetwaterline.com/   

Questions about the project came up at the July 13 GACC meeting.  The City has responded that Dimond Zollinger with SLC Public Utilities has made the project team is aware of the traffic and safety concerns that were brought up at the meeting. The project is anticipated to be complete around the end of August. The intersection of North Temple and State Street contains the most complex and time consuming work. 2nd Avenue has been closed to keep the public and our crews safe and provide access for equipment while they work in this intersection. There is still subsurface work and paving that needs to be done in the intersection before it can be opened to traffic. We understand how impactful these closures are and appreciate the public’s patience as we complete the waterline installation to improve the City’s infrastructure.  

Residents with questions and concerns may refer to the project website and sign up for alerts to stay informed. There’s also a hotline and email address where residents can ask questions, receive updates, and voice their concerns.  Project website: https://www.statestreetwaterline.com/  Project Hotline: 385-341-2898, and project email: .


 Please be aware that no fireworks are allowed anywhere in The Avenues!  Report fireworks by calling 801-799-3000 non emergency police.  In case of fire, call 9-1-1.
