On May 16, 2019, Mayor Biskupski hung the first of 164 emergency marker signs along the Jordan River Parkway Trail. Each sign will have a unique location code that will be loaded into SLC 911 Dispatch’s database. These codes will help emergency responders quickly identify a caller’s location and determine the fastest response route. The location codes are also associated with trail mileage, so users can easily track their progress along the trail. Salt Lake City is the first municipality along the trail to introduce more frequent location markers and provide detailed coordinates to emergency responders. The markers will be located approximately every 250 ft. along the trail, between 2100 South and the Davis County line. The installation process will take approximately one month to complete.
