Redwood Road Construction Updates

Post Date:08/09/2017 3:18 PM

Update - August 18, 2017

 

Additional congestion expected next week

School begins on August 22, which means traffic will increase, especially during peak commute hours and sporting events at the high school. We encourage residents to implement the following items to help decrease congestion during the school year:

▪Walk or bike to school when possible.
▪Ride the bus if provided.
▪Organize a carpool in your neighborhood.
▪Watch for school buses and give them time and space for left turns.

For parents: Visit UDOT's Student Neighborhood Access Program (SNAP) website to learn about walking and biking safely to and from school.

For drivers: Visit UDOT’s TravelWise website for strategies to plan ahead and reduce trips, which will result in fewer delays during construction on Redwood Road.
