600/700 North Mobility, Safety, and Transit Improvements Study

Project Update (updated 9/10/2021) – Our team has developed a new draft Vision for the 600/700 North Corridor! Learn more about this Vision below, and take the survey to share your feedback!

Project Overview

Project Area

The 600/700 North Mobility, Safety, and Transit Improvements Study will create a plan to transform this critical Westside Salt Lake City corridor in ways that promote safety, enable mobility for active modes and transit, and better serve the surrounding neighborhoods. With input from local stakeholders and community leaders, the Study will identify specific projects to be phased in during the next few years. In anticipation of future planned frequent transit service on the corridor, the project will determine how transit stops are oriented on the corridor.

Based on technical analysis, community feedback, and Stakeholder collaboration, the project team has developed a new Vision for the 600/700 North Corridor. The ideas in this Vision are a combination of the 3 Alternative Concepts presented in spring 2021, adapting key features of each Alternative. This Vision applies design ideas in ways that work for the context of different segments of the corridor. Some of the highlights include protected bike lanes, crossing improvements, landscaping and median improvements, and new bus stops and service.

You can think of the overall shape of the Vision as an “hourglass,” with higher priority for vehicles at the east and west ends of the corridor, serving the two freeway interchanges. In the central part of the corridor, between Redwood Road and 900 West, there is an opportunity to change priorities by reallocating street space to provide a streetscape that is much more compatible with residential character, Backman Elementary, Riverside Park and Jordan River Parkway, and neighborhood commercial uses.

The project team thinks this Vision will result in more moderate vehicle speeds, more transportation choices (especially for those who walk, bike and take the bus), better community space, and better beautification. Over the next year, the Vision will be shared and discussed with the community and proceed to the next state of engineering and design.  It is expected that the first phase of construction, between 800 West to Redwood Road, could begin by 2024. The second phase of construction, from Redwood Road to 2200 West would follow in 2026. There are still a lot of details to work out, and we want to hear from you about concerns, support, or ideas you have.

What do you think about the new draft 600/700 North Vision?

Take the survey by October 31, 2021!

Right now, 600/700 North is one of the biggest corridor projects planned for the area. But we want to emphasize that there are many other current and upcoming transportation improvements happening in Westside neighborhoods, like new regional bus service, neighborhood byways, and more. While all of these projects are unique in terms of their scale and area, Salt Lake City and our community partners are collaborating to ensure that they are approached holistically and connect/build off of each other to make streets and traveling better for everyone.

2021 Public Engagement

In spring of 2021, we developed 3 concepts for the 600/700 North corridor and asked people for feedback through a survey. Learn more in the Story Map below.
