Please tell us about how you travel around Salt Lake City in a typical month.



How frequently do you currently travel on 2100 South (1700 E to 2300 E)?
Occasionally, a few times a month


How important to you are the following goals for this section of 2100 South (1700 E - 2300 E)?



Please prioritize your goals for 2100 South.
Minimize congestion at rush hour


Which design do you prefer?
Option 3 - Existing Design


Why do you prefer this choice?
There are at least two lanes both directions on either end of this segment. Changing this to one lane each direction will simply create a traffic choke-point that makes NO sense. (Furthermore, this appears to be a VERY biased and maybe even an invalid survey in favor of eliminating traffic lanes, by inferring that if we want to keep existing traffic lanes we must WANT more crashes and injuries.)


To what level do you agree or disagree with the following statement:
To significantly reduce crashes, I would be willing to spend an extra minute or two traveling on this segment of 2100 South during rush hour.

Strongly Disagree

Multiple times per day


How important to you are the following goals for this section of 2100 South (1700 E - 2300 E)?



Do you have other goals for this section of 2100 South?
Bicycling would be very dangerous. Also, remember all the people and businesses trying to get out of their house/driveway. Glad you are repairing this (all others?) road.


Please prioritize your goals for 2100 South.
Minimize congestion at rush hour, Create opportunities for improved pedestrian crossings, Provide access for all ages & abilities, Prevent crashes & injuries, Reduce speeding, Support economic development, Improve conditions for walking & bicycling


Which design do you prefer?
Option 3 - Existing Design


Why do you prefer this choice?
There is very little speeding now. Bicycling would be very dangerous (I rode bikes for years) 4 lanes of traffic would keep it moving.


To what level do you agree or disagree with the following statement:
To significantly reduce crashes, I would be willing to spend an extra minute or two traveling on this segment of 2100 South during rush hour.

Neutral


Are there any issues you would like to bring to the City's attention? If appropriate, please reference specific locations (address / business name). We will seek to address special circumstances while balancing public use of the street. If you have a specific concern, please share it with us.
Roads throughout the City in bad shape. Don't know where street maintenance $$ have been redirected over the years. Bicycling on major roads such as 21st So. is problematic.

The road is an important corridor for traffic. We already have too many bike lanes.

This question strongly favors the option of putting in bike lanes since you are claiming that bike lanes are the safer option. Of course everyone will answer that they want safety first. I think that 2100 S can remain safe with four lanes of traffic.


Please let us know any additional thoughts, concerns, observations, or potential solutions as we consider the design options.
It would be nice is the survey wasn't slanted towards putting in bike lanes. By the way, I drive 1300 S several times a day and there are rarely bikers in the recently added bike lane. I'm a biker and I know that nearly all bikers either turn up Sheridan Rd or Thunderbird Drive, not 1300 South, roads that are a lot less busy.

intersection of 2100 S and 2000 E needs crosswalk and flags if not signal. we have two blind adults who work at performing art school who travel by bus and have difficulty crossing street and we have two disabeled residence on south side of 2100 who travel by bus and need to cross 2100 S

intersection of 2100 S and 2000 E. Has a bus stop which is great, but we have two adult
people who take bus and work at the performing arts school at Roselyn Heights school.
It is scary watching them cross street for buses. We also have two handicapped residence
( one In power wheel chair) (one Stroke victim) who must cross street to catch the bus.

We need signal, or crosswalk and red flags.!!!!!!!!!!!

Which design do you prefer?
Option 1 - Safer Design, With Bike Lanes


Why do you prefer this choice?
In theory, bike lanes are better than no bike lanes. However, this is only true if 1) they are wide enough: they are often giving the car drivers the impression they can pass super close, just because of that white line on the ground. For example, I am glad that the one on 800 S was removed and that signs are trying to raise awareness of bikers to the drivers (long term this is the only solution: drivers awareness). I had a few scares on that bike lane going West, since it's quite downhill - there were holes in it, forcing a biker to avoid them and end up on the car lane. So, 2) bike lanes are only a plus is they can be clear of debris (glass, nails) or holes, to be useful. If not, then bikers will end up on the car lane, where drivers won't expect them and may get more impatient (since there is a bike lane, they won't understand why a biker can't use it)


To what level do you agree or disagree with the following statement:
To significantly reduce crashes, I would be willing to spend an extra minute or two traveling on this segment of 2100 South during rush hour.

Strongly Agree


Please let us know any additional thoughts, concerns, observations, or potential solutions as we consider the design options.
Side note: I do not drive there at rush hour... Also, see my previous comment about bike lanes - in theory they are great, but as a biker I can assure you, it is only true if they are well maintained to avoid debris and holes. If there is a bike lane but it is not usable, then the bike lane is worse than no bike lane, because drivers won't look out for a bike in the car lane, and may even get angry/impatient. Long term, drivers awareness is the only solution (see for example Netherlands - bikes have often priority over cars, so cars have to check out for bikes).

I attended the open house to ask questions. When I could not find anyone who could answer my questions , I asked Dan where I could get a copy of the report analyzing the situation. I was shocked when he informed me there wasn't a written report!!! He indicated they didn't have the staff to write a report. In other words, trust us. This is not the way the tax payers expect the Mayor to carry out the City's business.



Please let us know any additional thoughts, concerns, observations, or potential solutions as we consider the design options.
I think this survey was biased!! For example, the list of items we were asked to rank as to their respective importance didn't even include the most important item to the adjacent neighborhoods----the impact on the adjacent neighborhoods. The general comments I heard at the open house were that the City had already made up its mind and that the open house was scheduled only so the City would be able to say they had solicited public comment!!!
