Series of potholes and rough road as you are merging from I-215 onto I-80 West. It's been getting worse over the months and becomes very difficult to dodge - especially when there's traffic. Damage may have be done to my vehicle (it's stock, but still low-profile with tight suspension and low-profile tires). Please address ASAP.
At this new intersection, when turning left (northbound) off of Wasatch with the green left arrow, the cars coming down off of Little Cottonwood Canyon Road also have a green light and are traveling very fast and not yielding to the cars with the left turn arrow. I have seen two near accidents where the individual with the green arrow had to swerve into the oncoming traffic lane to avoid being hit by a vehicle coming out of the canyon and did not yield to the cars with the arrow.
The new high-T intersection at Wasatch Blvd and Little Cottonwood Canyon Rd is dangerous and definitely not an improvement. I have seen several accidents already in the few months since it was completed and almost been hit by cars turning left onto Danish Rd across southbound traffic on Wasatch. Neither cars can see each other due to the dip in the road. The lack of a traffic light for northbound traffic from Little Cottonwood Canyon makes it extremely difficult and dangerous to get in and out of the Golden Hills neighborhood. This intersection should have been a roundabout, not the mess that has been created. What engineer designed this?
You need to do something out the corridor and the numerous accidents on it. Why are there not yellow flashing lights all the way down that show the light is turning from green to red, in West Jordan this makes a Huge difference. Why are there not green turn arrows on every direction of this street! This has become so deadly, what does it take for you to look at how this road is designed and fix it. YES drivers are a huge problem and I have emailed my city asking why they do not have a bigger police presence at rush hour but why did you choose to design a road that is very confusing to some and not take ALL precautions to ensure it was done right! I was hit and my car totaled on this road at 11800 and the Corridor, why do you not have cameras there so people cannot lie and cause more headache and issues! How many people have to die before money isn't the issue but people are?
The fencing that is adjacent to our property has been ran into many times. Because of its condition we have had vehicle break ins, tires stolen and property damage. We have caught people parking their cars on the side of the freeway where the 3500 s. turn off is and jump our fence to steal person property of our residents. We have tried calling to figure out who takes care of this issue for the last couple of months and have gotten no where. With the recent activity going on around our neighborhood, we would like the safety concern taken care of as soon as possible.

The University of Utah has approximately 3 entrances to accommodate thousands of employees and students coming to campus.
Recently, a NO RIGHT TURN sign was hung at the light at Foothill and Mario Capecchi, thus it has turned this 2 lane northbound entrance into a 1 lane entrance. It is causing a huge bottle-neck problem. The merge lane is known for its fender benders and I believe that this closure will increase this problem. School will start in a few weeks and the traffic will be much heavier.
Please reconsider opening the right hand turn lane into campus. You could put a flashing yield light to alert drivers to a new cross walk and pedestrians.
People run this yield sign all the time. It is becoming increasingly dangerous to go to this on ramp. My wife saw that someone rear ended another car there today and we witnessed another car almost being side swiped. Put a patrol car there or change it to a stop sign because it's getting out of hand.
There are too many neighborhoods that egress through this area to have the speed limit be 50. This corner in particular is completely blind to the traffic exiting off of Kings Hill Dr and onto Wasatch Blvd. Now, because of the ridiculous new intersection just south of here, there is never a break in traffic and the egress from these neighborhoods has become extremely dangerous for the residents!
I wish I could post more than just one photo of the amount of trash that is against our gates from the freeway. It hasnt been maintained or clean at all. We have had trash fly over the fence over to our soccer field, the kids on the property have cleaned it up if it comes over to our side, but that isn't enough. There is a sign that was on the freeway that is now on the ground where the fence is, also tires, foam tops, blankets, and trash bags hanging in the trees and bushes. Its not attractive and disgusting. It has brought rats onto our property that we are continuously trying to rid of. Again this is another issue that we have tried to sort out but have not gotten anywhere with.
The neighborhood should lobby for a decreased speed limit on Wasatch from the new traffic light north to the light at Bengal Blvd. A 30 mph limit is more suitable for the neighborhood and might encourage the through traffic to seek other routes north and south.
Foothill Dr @ 765 S Salt Lake City, UT 84108, USA - East Bench
Foothill Drive is SUCH a dangerous road for pedestrians! A fatal auto-pedestrian collision occured just north of my neighborhood in the last week. Young people need to cross Foothill or walk along it to get to their schools! We all must to be able to safely cross this road to get to neighborhood businesses. You HAVE to allow safety flags, improve infrastructure, increase crosswalk lighting, something, everything (!) to improve the safety of this road! You need to come to a community council meeting to hear from concerned community members and explain what you're doing.
