Draper City has contracted to replace a main transmission water line that serves the SunCrest area. Work on replacing the water line is scheduled to begin on March 7, 2022 near the intersection of Deer Ridge Dr and Traverse Ridge Rd, with the work zone progressing west. See the project overview map for scope of the work zone. Residents can expect lane closures. The contractor will install temporary lights (as opposed to flaggers) in areas that are reduced to one lane. Updates will be posted on the interactive projects map. This project, including road repair, is expected to be completed by October 1, 2022.
This water line replacement project has affected planned road improvements on Deer Ridge Drive. The City originally planned to repair the existing water line in Deer Ridge Drive and complete the reconstruction of the roadway in 2021. However, as work began on the first phase of the water line repair, it became evident that the severity of the corrosion of the existing water line and the depth at which it was constructed would likely make the repairs unfeasible to complete as planned. After further analysis, it was determined that replacing the water line will be a more effective long term solution than repairing the existing water line. The City felt this was the best long-term solution to reduce the amount of disruptions to the SunCrest water system and Deer Ridge Drive. Draper City is committed to residents' safety and quality of life. We appreciate your patience as we continue working on this project.
