Syracuse Police Department Traffic Checkpoint
Posted March 13th, 2014
On Saturday, March 15, 2014, Syracuse Police Department will be conducting an Administrative Traffic Checkpoint as part of its ongoing initiative to remove impaired drivers from our roadways. The Syracuse Police Department has made it top priority to reduce impaired driving incidents in our area. The location of the checkpoint will be at 1900 West 1700 South, Syracuse, Utah. The location of the checkpoint was selected due to heavy traffic volume in Syracuse. The northbound access road onto Banbury Drive from 1700 South will also be closed to all through traffic during the time of the checkpoint. The checkpoint will begin during the evening of Saturday, March 15, 2014, and continue until the early morning hours of Sunday, March 16, 2014. Any inquiries in reference to this press release may be directed to Officer Erin Behm.
MEDIA NOTE: Members of the media are invited to and observe the checkpoint operation. Please contact PIO Erin Behm (801-825-4400) if you are interested in observing the checkpoint.
North Davis Sewer District Sewer Line Project Update
Posted February 21st. 2014
The sewer district is currently working on maintaining the sewer pipes along Gordon Avenue (2700 S) to prevent breakages and backups. The existing pipe was installed in the 1950's and is in need of serious repair. The maintenance and repair project process includes re-routing the sewer to an above ground pipe. A pipe lining material is inserted in the old pipe, inflated like a balloon until tight and then cured in place. Once the old pipe is repaired with the lining material, the sewage is then re-routed back into the old pipe.
The District is repairing sewer lines along Gordon from Main Street in Layton to Bluff Road in Syracuse. Work began April 2013 and is anticipated to be completed by late spring 2014.
Construction has now reached the 6-way round-a-bout of Gordon Ave, 2000 W., and Bluff Road. Construction will impact residents who consistently use the roundabout in their daily commutes beginning March 3, 2014.
The construction project will shut down the west side of the round-a-about, closing off Gordon Ave west-bound at the round-a-about and east bound Gordon Ave at S. 3000 W.
Bluff Rd will be closed to through traffic from Antelope Drive to the round-a-bout, each direction.
2000 W. will be closed going south-bound to through traffic at 2575 S. At this point Traffic will be detoured to the east through the neighborhood to gain access to Gordon Ave.
To keep everyone safe, please obey all signs and traffic routes, and do not attempt to go the wrong direction around the round-about. Please plan on allowing more time and distance for your commute.
The Sewer District thanks you for your understanding and patience through this process. A map and update can be found atwww.clwsi.com. Look to the bottom of the web page for a link to the construction update page for NDSD Project 1.
This is not a Syracuse City project and residents may contact the contractor directly with any questions at (303) -791-2521.
