Frequently Asked Questions
What are the plans for the area between Adams Street and I-15 in Midvale?
Beginning in early to mid-September, a new 3.7-acre park will be constructed on the west side of Adams Street between the Copperview Recreation Center park and Harvard Drive. UDOT and Midvale City are working closely together throughout the design process. The park will include the following features: sidewalk paths, trees, lights, a fenced dog park with shrubbery surrounding it, and small parking lots at the north and south ends of the park. Details for additional park features are in the process of being finalized.
A detention pond is being constructed at the south end of the park as part of a larger storm drain system for the new I-15 collector-distributor system. The pond will be lined with sod and will double as a recreation area when water is not present. Water collected during a storm event will drain from the pond.
