900 South Reconstruction & 9-Line Trail (Lincoln Street – 1300 East)
In 2019, Salt Lake City will reconstruct 900 South from Lincoln Street (950 East) to 1300 East. To repair this badly deteriorated street, the project will reconstruct the road base, make minor utility improvements, and repave in concrete. This project will take 6 months once construction begins.
As part of this reconstruction, a new bike path will be constructed on the park strip on the south side of the street, part of the 9-Line Trail Extension. Pedestrian crossings will be enhanced with shorter crossing distances and colored crosswalks. On street parking will remain.

Project Update – April 2018
Thank you to everyone who has given your thoughtful input on 900 South Reconstruction / 9-Line Trail from Lincoln to 1300 East.
More time to do it right: Following on our first round of public input and the community open house in the winter, the design team has decided to slow the project down in order to better explore a more robust set of design options with the community, particularly for the 1100 East/Gilmer/900 South intersection. We generally heard good support for the addition of the trail. We heard multiple requests to take a step back, include additional community input, and develop a timeline to allow for additional input prior to construction.
Based on community input, the original design of a “T intersection” into 900 South is no longer being considered.

“Pop-Up” Exploration of Intersection Redesign
Examples of temporary, “pop-up” materials.
Following on community suggestions for several unique intersection designs, Salt Lake City will further explore alternatives for the Gilmer Drive/1100 East/900 South intersection. Two temporary, “pop-up” intersection designs will be tested in May. Community input and operational data will be gathered through the “pop-up” period, and incorporated into a permanent design.
- May 16 – 23: A pop-up roundabout will be installed and monitored
- May 23-30: A pop-up closure of Gilmer Ave will be installed and monitored.
To volunteer to help with the “pop-up”, email the design team: email@example.com.
Input on Trail Design
The 9 Line Trail Extension Study recommends three routes traversing the steep hill from 1100 East to 1300 East. Using ski-slope analogy, the routes are indicated as green, blue, and “black diamond.”
Community input on this project so far has strongly supported the addition of the trail along 900 South, but we received many questions about the likelihood that the “black diamond” route up the steepest part of the 900 South hill would be used.
As a result the Transportation Division is gathering input on a couple of different designs for that part of the route.
