Gladiola Street Sewer Rehabilitation Project

The purpose of the project is to repair the existing sewer system in the area.

Crews are repairing the sewer system along Gladiola Street. This work will involve pot holing, trenching and pits along the East side of Gladiola St. to allow a slipline (smaller pipe) to be inserted into the existing sewer line.

Road closures will be needed for this project. The public will be notified in advance of any closure. Please drive safely in the work zone and follow all signed detour routes.

Traffic Control Update: Lane shifts along Gladiola Street with alternating one-way flagging and temporary traffic lights along Gladiola from 900 S. to 500 S. starting on July 28.

This project is part of an overall effort to upgrade and improve the sewer, water and storm drain systems. This improved infrastructure will support and foster economic development throughout Salt Lake City.

While SLC Public Utilities aims to keep construction impacts as minimal as possible, some impacts are unavoidable. Residents and drivers in the area can expect:

  • Continued water service – no interruptions are anticipated
  • Future road closures and lane shifts throughout the summer
  • Plated access over trenches to businesses and residences
  • On-street parking restrictions
  • Brief access interruptions
  • Trenching and open pits along Gladiola
  • Active construction during daylight hours, with nights & weekends possible
  • Freight carriers and motorists can expect up to 10-minute delays between 900 S. and 500 S. on Gladiola

Construction Update: Lane-Shifts with Alternating One-Way Traffic Flow

In an effort to accommodate the sewer rehabilitation and maintain traffic flow to businesses, lanes will be shifting to the west side of Gladiola St. from 900 S. north to 500 S. with an alternating one-way traffic flow. Traffic will be directed by flaggers during the day and by temporary traffic lights at night.

Residents and businesses are asked to avoid parking vehicles within the road right-of-way while construction is occurring on their street. This will protect personal property, minimize impact to neighborhoods, and expedite work.


While sidewalks will remain open and accessible during the majority of construction, pedestrians should always use caution when walking near active construction and trenches.


Safety is a top priority for SLC Public Utilities. For your safety and the safety of construction crews, please obey all construction signage and flagging operators.
If you see any vandalism or trespassing in construction areas, please call the Salt Lake City Dispatch:
(801) 483-6700 to report the incident.
