The West Temple reconstruction project will rehabilitate the aged pavement from North Temple to Market Street and provide additional features to make the street safer for those driving, walking, and biking. Construction is expected to begin May 28 and extend through the fall. Project improvements include:

  • New pavement

  • Improved crosswalks at Market Street, 300 South, Pierpont Avenue, 150 South, 100 South, and 50 North

  • Bus boarding islands near the 300 South intersection to improve bus transit efficiency

  • One travel lane in each direction will be converted to buffered bike lanes.

June 2024 Construction Update

West Temple is limited to one lane in each direction during construction between South Temple and 400 South. Crews are working between South Temple and 400 South to remove and replace pedestrian crossings in advance of paving.


Asphalt removal is anticipated the week of July 8 with paving anticipated July 12 & 13 between South Temple and 200 South. One-lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction, but shifted to one side of West Temple to allow space for the equipment.

During paving, July 12 & 13, 100 South will be closed at West Temple as will the West Temple entrance to the City Creek parking garage. To access the parking garage, motorists should use the detour shown on the map below.
