Project Overview

As part of the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future street reconstruction bond, Salt Lake City will start to reconstruct 200 South in 2022.200 South is Utah’s busiest transit street, used by 10 routes and 34 buses an hour. The 200 South Reconstruction project design considers the variety of needs of a functional downtown, urban core and will rebuild 200 South to improve mobility and safety for all users. Improvements include:

  • Transit priority lanes

  • In-lane bus stops with floating bus boarding platforms

  • Buffered bike lanes channelized behind bus islands with intersection safety upgrades

  • Sidewalk and curb ramp repairs to meet ADA standards

  • Midblock crossings with curb extensions and/or refuge islands and flashing crosswalk lights

  • Curbside parking and loading zones

  • New landscaping trees (100+) and repairs to existing plantings

As a result, getting around will be easier and more comfortable through increased safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, more efficient and convenient transit, and a more welcoming corridor with Complete Street design elements.

Project Area

200 South Bus Detours

Beginning Monday, May 9th:

Design Features

The design was developed through coordination with multiple City departments and UTA, and with prior and ongoing engagement with the community and stakeholders along the corridor.  The design implements several new features on 200 South that will work together to improve mobility along the corridor for transit vehicles and riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians.  Key features of the proposed design between 400 West and 900 East include the following:

In-lane bus stops with bike lanes channelized behind floating bus boarding platforms, side-running business access and transit lanes, landscaping, ADA improvements, signal replacements, enhanced midblock crossings with curb bulb-outs and median refuge islands.

Changes to Existing Parking

The project team tried to maintain existing curbside uses wherever possible, including on-street parking and freight loading; however, reallocation of limited street space requires conversion from back-in angled parking to parallel parking or parking removal in a few locations where the street width is constrained.  Parking modifications remain subject to change. The existing and proposed parking layout can be viewed as layers in the proposed corridor design in the scroll plots featured above.

Next Steps

The project team is continuing to iron out some details on each block as design is being finalized.  We anticipate construction starting on the east end of the project at 900 East in 2022 and in the downtown area in 2023.

Project Status & Construction Timeline

Project Status

Phase One Construction:

Section of 200 South: 900 East – 200 East

Construction: 2022

Current Status: Design complete, Contractor hired

Phase Two Construction:

Section of 200 South: 200 East – 400 West

Construction: Anticipated 2023

Current Status: Final design

Upcoming Construction

A contractor is anticipated to be selected by late spring, at which point we will develop more detailed information about the construction schedule, phasing, and impacts to share prior to work starting.

During construction, you’ll generally be able to expect one travel lane open in each direction, hours of operation from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and increased levels of noise, dust, and vibration. Dominion Energy will be upgrading and replacing a major gas pipeline from 900 East to 400 West; this work is being coordinated with the 200 South project to minimize and consolidate overall construction impacts.

This project has a dedicated public involvement team that will provide you with construction schedules and impacts before construction begins and every work during construction. To receive coordinated information and stay up to date on both projects sign up for updates by emailing 200south@slcgov.com or calling the project hotline at 385-341-8646.

Project Goals

  1. Transform 200 South into an iconic corridor for Salt Lake City.
  2. Reconstruct the corridor so that it becomes a transit-priority street.
  3. Organize complete streets elements to integrate active transportation, transit mobility, and placemaking.

Project Background & Materials

The 2017 Transit Master Plan was an intensive process that closely evaluated how to make transit work better for people living and working in the City. Fundamentally we understand that as we grow, it’s important to provide choices in travel and reduce dependence on cars. We know that if done well, there are a lot of positive implications like public health, air quality, economic competitiveness, and quality of life. Of the 15 corridors evaluated, the Transit Master Plan recommended analysis of capital improvements on 4 east-west corridors, with the #1 recommendation being 200 South from Salt Lake Central to the University of Utah.

We are taking the first steps to fulfill the voter-approved mandate by rebuilding 200 South and implementing the Transit Master Plan. We are also incorporating aspects of other adopted plans and policies resulting from years of discussion and public input, like the Complete Streets OrdinanceTransportation PlansClimate 2040 Plan, and more.
