Afftected Entities Notice

Goals, Tasks & Timeline

With a local planning grant from the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC), the City of Holladay is conducting a study of the Highland Drive/Van Winkle Expressway Intersection. The City selected the consultant team of Joseph Perrin (A-Trans Engineering, LLC) and Bruce Parker (Planning and Development Services, LLC) to lead study efforts. These firms bring decades of experience bridging the land use and transportation connection, which is critical to this study’s success.

The Study began with traffic data collection and land use analysis in the Fall of 2015 and it is anticipated to be completed by June 1, 2016. Ultimately, the process will evaluate a variety of potential, long term intersection redesigns and land use scenarios with aims to increase property values, increase area amenities, improve vehicle, bicycling, and pedestrian safety and enhance the attractiveness of this gateway intersection.

The project is focused on the intersections of Highland Drive, Vine Street, and the Van Winkle Expressway, and access to adjacent commercial properties. The project team will be working closely with neighboring communities, regional transportation agencies, and local business and property owners throughout the study process. Public open houses and comment opportunities are planned in February and March 2016; details of next public comment opportunity detailed below:
