Project in Holladay is moving forward

HOLLADAY (Deseret News) — A redevelopment project under way for years is finally taking shape in this east-side municipality.

The tangled intersection at Murray-Holladay Road, 2300 East and Holladay Boulevard has been destroyed. Dozens of workers are replacing the five-way stop with two four-way traffic lights and a walking plaza that city manager Randy Fitts said will be a gathering place for the whole community.

The area is also getting new curb, gutter and sidewalks to transform Holladay's central commercial district into a walkable hotspot. Until now, the neighborhood encompassing Holladay City Hall completely lacked sidewalks.

"When it's all done, it will be nice," said Bill Leslie, who owns a bakery inside the project.

Leslie's French Pastry was displaced by the construction but moved into a new space this spring.

"It's the biggest thing that's happened to Holladay, ever," Leslie said.

He expects that shops in the neighborhood, including a bread bakery and an ice cream store, will feed off one another when the plaza is finished.
