In 2016 and 2017, Salt Lake City conducted a study to develop a conceptual design and implementation strategy for a pedestrian and bicycle corridor along 900 South between the mouth of Emigration Canyon and the Surplus Canal, extending the existing 9-Line Trail both eastward and westward. This corridor had been mentioned in past mobility and transportation studies, and there was an identified need to develop more detailed designs and an implementation timeline.
The study completed in 2018 with this document to guide the future implementation of the trail.
The concept of the 9-Line Trail (also referred to as the Transvalley Corridor in previous studies) dates back to the Salt Lake City 1992 Open Space Master Plan. The original proposal sought to connect east and west Salt Lake City by linking neighborhoods and parks via a system of urban trails. Since that time, segments of trail have been constructed and other studies have addressed various segments or aspects of the trail and the surrounding neighborhoods.
