KSL Newsradio's Marc Giauque reportingWhen the wrecking ball starts rolling on the massive downtown reconstruction project next month, city planners expect a lot more heavy equipment will be sharing the roadways. Transit officials don't expect it to cause problems, though.

Already downtown drivers are sharing the road with a lot of dump trucks moving in and out of certain projects. Come early November, Tim Harpst of Salt Lake's Transportation Department says there will be more.

"We are specifically looking at hall routes, and how barricades to protect pedestrians will be structured, where they'll be located," he said.

Harpst says West Temple and North Temple will be the likely routes. He says they fully expect to keep all roads and walkways open during the massive demolition and reconstruction project.
