PROJECT UPDATE (updated 2/4/2021) – Thanks for participating and providing comments on our three concepts. Below is a summary of the results that will inform the final concept selection and refinement.
200 South Corridor Plan –
Transit Priority, Complete Street, Intermodal Hub
What is next?
We are in Phase 1 and on Step 3 in the project timeline. Three concepts have been developed to show a range of high-level and interchangeable opportunities for improving mobility and providing additional pedestrian amenities, landscaping, and streetscape improvements on 200 South. The concepts are intended to help capture preferred lane configuration and general treatment options along the corridor, and therefore do not necessarily capture block-by-block design needs and urban design elements that will be included as the project progresses. Based on technical analysis, safety data, and public feedback, a final concept will be assembled to advance to final design. The City’s Complete Streets Ordinance, Transportation Plans, Climate 2040 Plan, and Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) guidelines will also be followed.

As part of the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future bond, Salt Lake City will reconstruct 200 South from 400 West to 900 East starting in 2022, with aspirations to create an iconic corridor where businesses thrive, residents feel comfortable and safe walking, transit users navigate easily, and visitors build lasting memories. In addition to the corridor itself, the study is looking into options for a multi-modal transit center to serve as a focal point where different modes of travel—walking, biking, transit, and shared mobility—seamlessly converge.
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 Ordinance, Transportation Plans, Climate 2040 Plan, and more. With so many stakeholders involved—too many to name here—we want to say thank you to our partners at UTA, UDOT, Salt Lake County Office of Regional Development, and the Wasatch Front Regional Council.
We’re currently in the study phase of the project, which will provide opportunities to share ideas and comments. To stay informed, send us an email with the word “Updates” in the subject line or give us a call anytime.

Project design of $1 million, as well as additional future construction costs, will be funded via the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future streets reconstruction bond. This is one of the many street reconstruction projects part of the Funding Our Future initiative.
