Storm drain project causes periodic closures of 100 East

A storm drain installation project has 100 East in Tooele periodically closed to through-traffic during business hours in the area behind Maceys and Albertsons.

The project involves the installation of a new storm drain under 100 East between the Lakeview Apartments complex and 400 North, according to Tooele City engineer Paul Hansen.

The large diameter of the new storm drain pipes has made it necessary for the city to relocate some of the existing utilities in the area as well, Hansen said in an email, and the additional utilities work has slowed construction work.

The city has also opted to close 100 East to through traffic in the work zone during work hours for safety purposes.
