The Nibley City Council will meet on Thursday, April 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Nibley City Hall to select a plan for rerouting the 3200 S SR-165 intersection. Nibley City conducted a study in late 2014 to determine how best to improve and realign the intersections at 3200 South/SR-165 and Mill Road/SR-165. Both intersections have a history of accidents ranging from minor to deadly.
The objectives of Nibley City for these intersections and the surrounding area include the following:
1. Improving automobile safety by having a four-way intersection with a traffic signal that stops traffic in all directions. This will involve re-configuring the road network so as to connect 3200 South with Mill Road. The new signal will stop northbound traffic (unlike the current signal at 3200 South and SR-165), thus making it safe for left- and right-turning vehicles.
2. Improving pedestrian safety by allowing pedestrians to safely cross SR-165. The intersection will have a traffic signal that stops traffic in all directions and will have painted crosswalks and other essential improvements to help people cross the highway safely.
3. Improving bicycle safety by installing bike lanes on both the east and west legs of the new intersection. The traffic signal will stop northbound/southbound traffic and allow for bikes to safely cross the highway.
