Springtime Road Landslide FAQ

Trails Closure Map - Springtime Rd Landslide (updated 5/3/23)

Update 4/25/23: 

Wednesday, April 26, from approximately 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Edge Homes will be demolishing the remaining portion of the house that partially collapsed. This work needs to be completed to improve the safety of this site and allow workers to begin assessing remediation efforts.   

Springtime Road will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians during this time except for local traffic. Officers will be on scene to control access.

Update 4/23/23 5:39 PM: 

Draper Police is advising anyone trespassing on closed trails or around the condemned homes and slide area may be subject to citation. People have been going into the prohibited areas, around fencing, etc. 

Update 4/23/23 1:09 PM: 

  • Two residences - the homes on each side of the properties that slid, were evacuated and have been condemned. Signage and fencing has been placed around those residences.

  • The affected area is being monitored by Draper City Police. Bystanders should not visit the vicinity of the slide.

  • Ann’s and Clark’s Trails will remain closed while the stability of the newly condemned homes continues to be monitored and evaluated. We ask everyone to respect the trail closures for their own protection. When deemed feasible to do so, a cleanup effort will be coordinated for the trails.

Draper City will provide additional updates as evaluation and follow up continues. We appreciate the friends, neighbors, elected representatives, and others who have shown compassion, offered assistance, and helped the families involved to cope with this hardship. That is truly what makes Draper a great community to be part of.

Update: Clark's Trail is also closed until further notice. We need everyone to stay out of the area, including the neighborhood where the homes are located. Springtime Rd is closed to resident traffic only. 

On October 25, 2022, Draper City’s Building Official issued a notice revoking the Certificates of Occupancy and requiring the evacuation of two homes located at 2463 and 2477 E Springtime Rd. The notice declared both homes unfit for human habitation and occupancy due to dangerous conditions. The conditions were related to earth shifting that resulted in sliding and breaks in the homes’ foundations. 

Early this morning, both homes collapsed due to sliding. Engineers, building officials, and public safety personnel are on site and have determined that two additional homes, one on each side of the previously evacuated homes, need to be evacuated. The residents of these homes have been notified and are evacuating.  

Draper City has been following up with the developer, Edge Homes for months on engineering studies Edge Homes has conducted regarding the stability of the surrounding area. With the snow pack melting and creating changes in conditions, other homes in the neighborhood will be evaluated for safety concerns. At this time, only the two adjacent homes are being evacuated.  

Due to current conditions and with one of the collapsed homes sliding onto the trail, Ann’s Trail is being closed to public use. People should be aware to stay clear of the trail due to dangerous conditions and not circumvent the closure notices.  

This is an evolving situation. Draper City will continue to update the public as we have more information and notify if there is a need for any additional evacuations or closures. Our hearts are with the homeowners involved at this time of loss. We are grateful that everyone is safe.
