4400 South pedestrian / bicycle multiuse trail and bridge update
The construction is complete and the walkway is open!
RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY
The ribbon cutting ceremony for the new bicycle/pedestrian trail and bridge will be held this coming Saturday, December 10th at 11:00 A.M. The ceremony will be held in a large tent, east of the new bridge, located near the Cozydale Roundabout at approximately 1500 West 4400 South. Engineer Scott Nelson, CEC, has arranged for the tent as snowy weather is forecast. The program should last for about 30 minutes. The trail is almost done and we expect it to be open for use following the ribbon cutting. Suggest you dress warmly for the occasion!

Ribbon Cutting Delayed Until December 10th
We had hoped to do the ribbon cutting for the new 4400 South bike and pedestrian trail on either Saturday, November 19th or the following Saturday on the 26th. There is still concrete work to be done west of the new bridge. With the forecast rain/snow on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, the work will probably not be completed before Saturday. It is essential that we don’t do the ribbon cutting and trail opening before the trail is complete and safe for use. November 26th was a backup date, but with that being the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we will not go on that date. In order to get the word out to all residents, including many who don’t do Facebook or the internet, we are going to schedule the ribbon cutting for December 10th, at 11:00 A.M. This will enable us to get the word out to all residents in the December city newsletter. We would expect the trail to be finished before December 10th. The trail will be opened for public use as soon as the work is complete. We will get the word out on the city website and social media, when the trail is open. The formal ribbon cutting will be delayed until the 10th. The Riverdale City Band had offered to play at our ribbon cutting ceremony, but has a Christmas Concert scheduled on the 10th and will not be available. Many are anxious for the trail to be done and so are we! It shouldn’t be long!
BRIDGE PLACEMENT, 4400 SOUTH BIKE/PEDESTRIAN TRAIL
The west half of the new bicycle/pedestrian bridge, which will span I-15 is scheduled to be placed late this Saturday night, actually Sunday morning, November 6th. The southbound lanes of I-15 are scheduled to be closed at midnight, Saturday night, with traffic being rerouted off the freeway. Following the freeway closure, a large crane will be moved into place on the freeway and should be ready to hoist the secong half of the bridge, which will be prepositioned on the 4400 South vehicle bridge, to its new location spanning the freeway. The actually placement of the bridge should happen around 1:00 to 2:00 A.M. on Sunday morning.
EXPECT DELAYS WHEN TRAVELING THROUGH THE AREA.
UPDATE (10/3/2016) : The lane for eastbound traffic between Cozy Dale Dr. and Parker Drive on 4400 South is now OPEN. However, please be advised that there will be occasional temporary lane closures as construction continues. Travelers may want to consider an alternate route during these times. Please use caution when traveling this area during construction.
Construction has started for the pedestrian / bicycle multiuse trail and bridge. Please use caution when traveling on 4400 South between Parker Drive and Airport Road. There will be temporary lane restrictions which will result in some delays. There will also be limited road closures at times as the project progresses. Updates will be made to this page as they become available.
Project information: This project is being done to provide a safe route for pedestrians and bicyclist by creating a path under I-84 and a bridge over I-15 on 4400 South. It is expected to be completed by November 4, 2016.
The work has finished on the reconstruction of the bridge over the Weber River on 4600 South (near the Riverdale City Offices). The concrete side walk has been replaced along with the new asphalt on the road surface.
Roundabouts are designed to keep traffic moving through the intersection, meaning less stopping and reduced traffic congestion.
When using the new roundabout please remember:
- Travel in a one-way direction around the center island.
- Always yield to traffic in the roundabout.
- Do not stop if the way is clear.
