West Temple Reconstruction (North Temple to 400 South)
The West Temple reconstruction project will rehabilitate the aged pavement from North Temple to 200 South and provide additional features to make the road safer for those driving, walking, and biking from North Temple to 400 South. The project concept includes converting one travel lane in each direction to a striped buffered bike lane, extending curbs at some intersections to shorten the crossing distance for people walking, and improving several mid-block cross walks. Please note that the pavement will only be reconstructed from South Temple to 200 South. Elsewhere along the corridor, the construction will consist of striping changes and other improvements. Construction is scheduled to take place in 2024.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is reconstructing West Temple from North Temple to South Temple in 2022 as part of the Temple Square rehabilitation project. There will be no changes to the roadway striping during the 2022 construction but the striping layout on that block will be updated in 2024 as part of the West Temple reconstruction project. The Salt Lake City Transportation team is also investigating improvements to bicycle connectivity from North Temple to 200 North into the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
