  1. Thanks for the updates. What a mess, good thing it’s temporary. I’m curious when or if UDOT will put a sign at the bottom of Victory rd to stop the tour buses from coming up. I’ve now seen 3-4 buses in as many days get high-centered on the dip while trying to make the left off of Victory and on to upper Zane. It makes more of a mess than the detours do alone.

    Hopefully you can pass a message along. Thanks

      Serena,

      UDOT came to our Neighborhood Council meeting last night and indicated they were putting signs to discourage bus drivers from coming up Victory Road. They’ve also contacted the SLC Convention and Visitors Bureau and the SLC Downtown Alliance. Hopefully, that will help matters.

  3. Could someone point me to an explanation of what UDOT hopes to accomplish in terms of traffic flow with these changes to Victory Rd. and 500 No? At one time, the Master Plan indicated that efforts would be made to discourage commuter traffic from using Capitol Hill as a path to and from downtown Salt Lake. Not sure whether these changes improve or worsen the situation. The last changes to the stop signs at State and 300 No. certainly favored commuters, and made it more difficult for Capitol Hill residents to get off the hill. Likewise, the changes to the Main and 300 No. Intersections some time ago also favored commuters using State, 300 No. And Columbus as their path out of town. Hope someone can clear this up for me.
