PROJECT UPDATE (updated 6/1/2021) – Learn more about the 900 South reconstruction project, and design for the Central Ninth neighborhood, below.
Salt Lake City will reconstruct 900 South from 900 West to Lincoln Street (945 East) starting in 2021. As part of the project, the 9-Line Trail corridor will be an attractive, safe, and inclusive place for neighbors, businesses, and street users. A new trail will also introduce a walking and bicycling connection between east and west Salt Lake City, linking neighborhoods, business districts, and cultural destinations.
The Funding Our Future street reconstruction projects will build safer, more accessible and more welcoming streets that accommodate all ages and abilities. These transformative projects will allow for future growth and changes in transportation while focusing on moving people – not just cars. With input from the community at every stage, Funding Our Future projects are designed to not only solve transportation problems, but also beautify the communities they serve, promote public health, and create a more sustainable environment.
As part of the decision-making process for the project, we’ll incorporate the results obtained from community engagement and public comments, technical analysis, safety data, and we’ll also follow the city’s Complete Streets Ordinance, Transportation Plans, Climate 2040 Plan, in addition to Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) guidelines.
How to Survive Construction Workshop
Thanks to everyone that joined the online How to Survive Construction workshop! Check out the presentation slides from the workshop below.
We recommend viewing the Project Hub below in its own window, on a larger screen like a computer or tablet. If you are viewing it on a mobile device, turn your screen to landscape view. Also the Hub works better if you click the links and images within it instead of using the side arrows.
Read the 9 Line Trail Extension Study from 2018 for more background.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2021 and end in 2023. However, construction will be staged to only impact portions of the corridor at any given time in order to reduce construction impacts to the community.
This project is valued at $19 million, and it will be financed via multiple sources of funding including an active transportation grant from Salt Lake County, the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future streets reconstruction bond, and water and sewer funds among others.
