|Upcoming Construction Activities|
|Highland Drive/1100 East Update:Highland Drive Phase 1, from I-80 to 2100 South, is on schedule to complete in November. Crews continue work in the 2100 South/Highland Drive intersection until then. Dominion Energy is relocating some conflicting lines in the northwest corner of the 2100 South/Highland Drive intersection and water and storm drain installation will follow. Two-way traffic will be restored to Highland Drive in November until Phase 2, from 2100 South to Ramona Street, begins in early 2024.|
|2100 South/1100 East IntersectionCrews are continuing work on the northwest corner of the intersection through this week. Underground utility work including storm drain, water line and gas line replacement or relocation is ongoing.|
Traffic on 2100 South is currently using the south side of the roadway. Area drivers should be prepared for changes in traffic configuration.

|Safety ReminderTo assist with pedestrian accessibility near 2100 South and Highland Drive, crews have installed a temporary crosswalk at the intersection of 2100 South and Elizabeth Street (1155 East). Pedestrians should use extra caution while crossing at this new location. For safety, pedestrians should follow any posted detour sign.|
|Nearby Construction Activities|
|2100 South Traffic Restrictions; 1000 East to 1400 East|
Crews will complete work between 1300 East and 1200 East by early November. Ground conditions west of 1300 East have slowed the work and we do not want to have traffic control impacting the business district during the busy holiday season. Work will resume between 1200 East and 1100 East in spring 2024. In late November or early December, crews will move to the east end of Phase 2 at Yuma Street. 2100 South will be reduced to one lane in each direction on the south side of the road while crews replace the pipe on the north side. Residents on the north side of 2100 South can expect some access interruptions while crews pass through the area.
