Highland Drive Reconstruction

Work began in June to widen and reconstruct Highland Drive to five lanes from Minuteman Drive to Bangerter Parkway. Drivers will notice a new traffic pattern with temporary striping in place while the north roadway is rebuilt, which is anticipated to be completed by the beginning of August. Once the north half is complete, traffic will move to the newly constructed portion while the south portion is built, which is anticipated to be completed by mid-September. Please note that the dedicated right lane from eastbound Highland to southbound Traverse Ridge Road will be reinstalled when the road work is finished. Questions or comments? Email or call 801-576-6365.

Lone Peak Parkway (11400 S. to 12300S.)
Widening will be completed on the west side of Lone Peak Pkwy. by end of June, then construction will shift to the east side from 12200 South to Election Rd, which will be completed by end of August. Two-way traffic will be maintained. Widening of the east side of Lone Peak Pkwy north of Election Rd is on hold pending negotiations with the abutting property owner.

Oak Vista Water Line / Road Reconstruction Waterline replacement is nearing completion, to be followed by reconstruction of the pavement on all public streets in the Oak Vista subdivisions. Anticipated completion is by end of summer.

300 East (11400 S. to 11800 S.) Reconstruction This project will reconstruct the pavement and repair the damaged sidewalk and gutters. 300 East Street will remain open to traffic with flaggers. Anticipated completion is by end of July.

Car Charging Stations Providing Level 2 car charging stations at City Hall and Draper City Park. Each location will have four stalls for charging electric vehicles. Work is now completed. Learn more.

Bangerter Parkway, 13800 South to Manila Drive Updated as of July 6, 2020: Traffic cones remain at the South Fork Drive intersection until a large electrical box gets moved by Rocky Mountain Power. The electrical box is obstructing visibility at the intersection with the new lane configuration. Rocky Mountain Power experienced some delays, but are currently working on it.

Construction work to resurface Bangerter Parkway from 13800 South to Manilla Drive is completed. As part of the project, two new traffic lanes were added when the road was restriped. The final lane configuration consist of two travel lanes in each direction and a center turn lane, for a total of five lanes. The new traffic lanes will ease the increasing traffic congestion on this roadway. 

Previously, Bangerter Parkway had very wide shoulders that were sometimes used for parking and biking. The new shoulders will not be wide enough to support either of these uses. The intent of the city is to widen Bangerter Parkway in the future to provide enough road width to add dedicated bike lanes. The timing of such a project is undetermined at this time. Unfortunately, the city did not have enough funding available to widen the road to add dedicated bike lanes with the current resurfacing and restriping project. Until the road is widened and dedicated bike lanes are installed, vehicles can use the inside lanes to pass bikers who are occupying the outside lanes (with the new lane configuration). 

UDOT Projects

Draper City does not have control over UDOT (state transportation) projects. A summary of UDOT projects in Draper is provided below with links to UDOT's website for more information.

UDOT I-15 Northbound in Draper, Sandy and Midvale UDOT is adding a new general purpose lane from Bangerter Highway to 9400 S. and a collector-distributor system from 9400 South to I-215 to increase mobility and reduce congestion. Construction began summer 2019 and expected to be complete by late 2020. In Draper, road construction can be seen at State Street and Minuteman Drive. Visit UDOT to view latest updates.

UDOT 12600/12300 South; Creek Meadow Road to State Street UDOT has begun work to resurface, improve smoothness and extend the life of the roadway on 12600/12300 S. from Creek Meadow Road to State Street. ADA ramps and concrete work will be updated as needed. Day and night construction activity up to 6 days per week anticipated from May through August 2020. To view the latest updates, visit UDOT's website, email, or call the hotline 855-740-8740.

Other Upcoming Projects

Bangerter Parkway Mill & Overlay Crews will be resurfacing the asphalt on Bangerter Parkway from 13800 South to Highland Dr. The roadway will be restriped to five lanes. A new traffic signal will be installed at 140th and Bangerter.

Draper Elementary Access Road Draper City and the Canyons School District are working on a second access road to the Draper Elementary School, 1080 E. 12660 South, so that there will be two exit / entry points. Currently, the only access to the school is from the west, off of Fort Street. This single access point limits traffic circulation and flow at the school, and the backup of traffic extends out to and along fort Street. Having one way in and one way out can make it very difficult for emergency vehicles to respond to an emergency.

The new access road will connect the existing 12650 South roadway to Manfield Way (east of the school). This will provide a secondary access point to significantly improve traffic flow during the school’s drop-off and pick-up times as well as during an emergency. Overall, it will provide a safer place for the children to attend and the teachers to work. 

The majority of the new roadway will be constructed along the entire north end of the school on property owned by Canyons School District. This will necessitate the construction of an additional parking lot on the school property to replace the existing parking area that will become part of the new roadway. Canyons School District and Draper City will jointly develop an inter-local agreement detailing the responsible costs for each entity. 

Construction of this new roadway started this past summer. Due to the scope of this project, the project will be completed summer 2020. If you have any questions about this project, please contact Eric Lundell, Draper City, at (801) 576-6365. 

Cephus Road and Vista Station A new traffic signal will be installed at 12560 South 550 West. Work will begin in the summer of 2020.

13490 South and Vista Blvd. A new traffic signal will be installed at 113490 So. and Vista Blvd. Work will begin in the summer of 2020.

1300 East Widening Project 1300 East from Nashi to Wayne's World will be widened from two to three lanes. The project includes adding sidewalks and curb and gutter. The project will begin the summer of 2021.
