Traffic flow on Circle of Hope Drive will be impacted beginning Monday, March 2, 2020. As part of the project to temporarily move Circle of Hope Drive, the islands in the middle of the road will be removed in two parts. The lower island will be taken out on Monday during the day, while the upper section will be removed the evening of Tuesday, March 3, starting after 6 pm.
To accommodate the island removal, traffic will be rerouted around the construction on Monday and Tuesday. For the removal of the lower section on Monday, two lanes will be open with flaggers helping to direct traffic. When attention shifts to the upper island on Tuesday evening, only one lane of traffic will be available. Again, flaggers will be on hand to direct commuters. The island removal work is anticipated to be completed by the morning of Wednesday, March 4.
During March 2 and 3, the BSB-University, Wasatch Express, HCI Institute and Hospital On-demand campus shuttles will experience delays, but will not detour.
The island removal is one piece of the overall project shifting Circle of Hope Drive southeast to a temporary road. This will create staging space for the construction of the Kathryn F. Kirk Center for Comprehensive Cancer Care and Women’s Cancers.
