SALT LAKE CITY — Sugar House commuters might have noticed a change in traffic as construction on 2100 South has seemed to disappear overnight.
According to John Coyle, project manager for the 2100 construction project, Salt Lake City is temporarily pausing construction to help businesses in that neighborhood.
“For the holiday season between before Thanksgiving and after New Year’s, we are not having any construction on the roadway; we have gone home for this period,” he said.
Coyle said the construction has been on pause since Thanksgiving as it made great headway in replacing aging infrastructure on Highland Drive from south of Interstate 80 to 2100 South.
Because of this, he said the city can press pause on the construction to encourage local support for Sugar House businesses.
“We’ve got to do this work, but we need to support the businesses, and being gone during the holiday season is, I think, one of the best things we can do,” Coyle said.
He said the Sugar House businesses have been great to work with, and he knows the construction is difficult for everyone involved.
“Please come to support them so it’s not so tough on them because I know when we go in front of their businesses, it creates difficulty,” Coyle said.
Construction will continue on Highland Drive shortly after New Year’s Day.
