200 South Reconstruction (400 West to 900 East)

Responsive Margin

Construction Update (June 2024)

Work is underway to complete phase two of the project from 200 East to 400 West. The majority of all concrete sidewalk work has been done and construction crews will be focusing on building mid-block crosswalks, bus boarding islands, and removing and replacing the asphalt road surface. Work will move from east to west, with asphalt replacement taking place as remaining concrete work is completed for each block. Construction is anticipated to go through fall of this year. Construction impacts include:

  • One lane in each direction on 200 South within work zones

  • Intermittent driveway access disruptions during asphalt removal and replacement

  • Noise, dust, and vibration

  • Bus routes between 200 East and 400 West will be detoured to 100 South

  • Cyclists are encouraged to use 300 South as an alternate route between 200 East and 400 West

  • On-street parking may be unavailable in some sections.

Project Overview

As part of the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future street reconstruction bond, Salt Lake City began the reconstruction of 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 (50+) 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.

Phase One Improvements (900 E to 200 E)

  • 418,932 square feet of new asphalt pavement to extend the life of the road and ensure a smooth driving/riding experience

  • 12 new concrete bus platforms and upgraded existing bus stops with new concrete pads to make boarding easier and more accessible

  • 8,923 linear feet of curb to maintain drainage and keep storm water out of the roadway

  • 44,293 square feet of new concrete sidewalk to improve accessibility and the pedestrian experience

  • 1,950 linear feet of storm drain to keep water off the road

  • 4 Upgraded Signals at 200 South 200 East to improve timing and keep traffic moving

  • Over 1 mile of new dedicated bike lanes to separate bikes and traffic

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.

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.

Thanks to the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future streets reconstruction bond, 200 South will start to be rebuilt in 2022 with transit priority strategies top of mind.
