WESTSIDE

TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS

Overview

Multiple transportation projects will be done by Salt Lake City in the Fairpark, Rose Park, Glendale, Poplar Grove and Westpointe neighborhoods over the next few years.

Many of these needed investments are possible thanks to the ongoing Funding Our Future initiative that started in 2018: the $87 million voter-approved bond for street reconstruction along with yearly sales tax revenue for increased street maintenance. And through Salt Lake City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) – a multi-year planning program of capital expenditures needed to replace or expand the City’s public infrastructure.

Multiple projects will affect the same areas at different times over the next few years. As projects progress, we will coordinate and share information to keep people informed about engagement activities, potential service interruptions, detour routes, or travel delays.

FAQ

Why do all these projects need to happen now?

Salt Lake City recognizes the challenges all these projects will cause to residents and businesses, but we (along with other organizations) also need to plan and ensure continued investment in the community:

A good network of streets, sidewalks, utilities, and more for years to come

Long standing issues are addressed, like the fact that a 2017 pavement condition survey revealed that nearly 2/3 of Salt Lake City streets are in poor or worse condition; many of these streets are in such poor condition that they need to be entirely reconstructed.

Much of our infrastructure is aging and is in dire need of upgrades. We need to improve and upgrade our public infrastructure to meet the current and future needs of this important community within our City.

What have Salt Lake City and partners done to address transportation equity on the Westside?

In 2020, Salt Lake City and its partners—Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Utah Transit Authority (UTA), Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC), and others initiated a Westside Transportation Equity Study to address a lack of transportation equity in Salt Lake City’s Westside neighborhoods. Ultimately, the study seeks to address how the City and its partners can more equitably meet the diverse needs of all community members.
