September 26 Update

On Friday, September 27 there will be new traffic control patterns at 7800 South 4000 West / Jordan Landing Blvd., 7800 South Airport Road, and New Bingham Highway at Airport Road.

Phase 2 of the project has been completed, where both eastbound and westbound traffic can travel on 7800 South between 4000 West and Airport Road.

To complete Phase 3 of the project, eastbound New Bingham Highway (NBH) from Airport Road to 4000 West must be closed for approximately 3 weeks for the contractor to construct the new road that will link NBH and 7800 South.  Eastbound NBH traffic will turn left onto Airport Road (north), then turn right (east at 7800 South.  View map.

Project Information

Beginning March 25, the City of West Jordan will begin the widening of 7800 South and the realignment of New Bingham Highway between Airport Road and 4000 West. The project will eliminate the confusing road split with New Bingham Highway, improve the capacity of the 7800 South and 4000 West intersection heading into Jordan Landing, and open east-bound 7800 South for continuous eastward access beyond Airport Road.


Like most Utah cities, West Jordan is generally laid out in a north-south, east-west grid. The diagonal New Bingham Highway interrupts that grid. It was originally constructed to provide access to the copper mine west of the city, but with the heavy growth in this area, it no longer meets traffic demand and will be inadequate for planned future development. Because of this, West Jordan is moving forward with projects to restore the arterial grid system in this area. The city has already completed several other aspects of this plan, including improving access to Mountain View Corridor at 7800 South and 9000 South.


This project was chosen from several options identified during a joint study by the city, the Salt Lake Department of Airports and the Utah Department of Transportation to improve traffic mobility without negatively impacting the airport’s Runway Protection Zone.

Exploratory Wells

Project Manager:Tim Heyrend, 801-569-5086

Project Dates:  March 14 - Fall 2019


November 20, 2018

An exploratory well was drilled at the north west corner of Ron Wood Park and so far the soil data shows that this location will be a great place for a well. Groundwater was encountered 338 feet down with preliminary results of good water quality. Upon final confirmation of good water quality, the exploratory well will be widened by drilling for 2 weeks to set well screens to a depth of 600 feet.

Beginning October 29 the contractor began drilling an exploratory groundwater well in the northeast corner of Ron Wood Park. Sound barrier walls were installed to reduce the noise levels.  Well drilling is a 24-hour operation.  The operation lasted for approximately 3 weeks depending on if the exploratory well produces good quality water with enough flow.   Resident letter.

The contractor will drill two (2) groundwater wells on the west side of the City.  The locations are the northwest corner of Ron Wood Park and 6750 West New Bingham Highway. The City is adding groundwater wells in order to fully utilize existing water rights, to provide lower cost water alternatives for new development growth, and to provide a good source of water both now and for the foreseeable future.

Redwood Road Multimodal Study

The Redwood Road Multimodal Transportation Study conducted a survey from the residents of the cities that Redwood Road runs through. The goal of the study is to develop a preferred multimodal transportation solution for Redwood Road that considers automobiles, transit, bicycles, pedestrians, and land use. The study will also identify an implementation plan for short, medium, and long-term aspects of the preferred solution.


The Redwood Road Multimodal Transportation Study is an open and inclusive collaboration between Salt Lake City, West Valley City, Taylorsville City, West Jordan City, South Jordan City, Sandy City, Salt Lake County, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC), and the Utah Transit Authority (UTA).
