9 Line Improvement Project

Project Summary

Location: Phase I – 900 South 700 to 900 West, Phase II – 1100 West to Redwood Road
Design Consultants: IBI – Phase II
Contractor: TBD
Funding: CIP
Project Manager: Tyler Murdock –

This shared-use paved trail represents the first step in a greater vision to construct the Transvalley Corridor Trail, identified in the 1992 Salt Lake City Open Space Plan, which would connect the Jordan River Parkway and the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.

Salt Lake City has recently completed a Master Plan for West Salt Lake, encompassing the Glendale and Poplar Grove neighborhoods. The 9 Line corridor was identified as one of the major community assets that could serve as a draw, and catalyst, to opening up other community points of interest and landmarks.

Capital improvements to the 9-line include important user amenities such as way finding signage, shade structure, site furnishings and landscape enhancements. The project will also expand the pump track to increase recreation opportunities in this area of the City.

Project Objectives

The objectives for the master plan are a synthesis of the ideas generated by the community through an extensive public outreach process as well as analysis performed by the design team. Five objectives capture the direction of the program ideas presented in the master plan:

Destination: The corridor master plan will seek to balance the needs of local users, as well as non-local users passing through as commuters, while creating lively spaces along the linear parkway where people congregate.
Play: The activities along the 9 Line corridor will be chosen to appeal to a variety of audiences of all ages, nationalities, and socioeconomic backgrounds to unify neighborhoods through recreation.
Nature: Connecting with nature will be a point of emphasis for the 9 Line, including protecting and restoring native habitats, providing wildlife habitat for a variety of species, and supporting community gardens.
Connections: The 9 Line corridor will physically and culturally connect neighborhoods on the east and west sides of the City, via a regional transportation trail network.
Art: Interactive artwork will be encouraged, allowing the corridor to act as a public space for free expression that is fluid, rather than static and conventional.

Project Schedule

Phase I: Completed 2017
