Capitol Hill Traffic Calming

Capitol Hill Traffic Calming

Project Update (August 7, 2023): Construction will begin in mid-August and conclude in October. Construction for this phase of the project will see the installation of 60 speed humps across the Capitol Hill and Marmalade neighborhoods. See the map below for more details on speed hump locations. During speed hump construction, expect some street closures while the work is completed. There will be no permanent parking restrictions. However, during construction there will be temporary parking restrictions to allow work. For each location, construction is expected to take less than a day. Impacts should be brief due to the quick construction turnaround. We ask that you stay alert for traffic control signs that indicate street closures and detours.

Salt Lake City is partnering with the Capitol Hill Neighborhood Council to implement neighborhood traffic calming strategies that promote safety, livability, and neighborhood character for area residents.

Project Overview

The Capitol Hill Neighborhood Traffic Calming Plan is the result of a nearly three year process, led by the Capitol Hill Neighborhood Council (CHNC). The plan is community-driven and based on input from residents throughout the neighborhood that identified specific issues. Cut-through commuter traffic, exhibition racing of vehicles with modified mufflers, and heavy-duty industrial vehicles diminish the quality of life in the neighborhood by impacting safety, comfort, and noise and air pollution.

600 North & 200 West Quick Build Background


In 2021, thanks to sponsorship and collaboration with our friends at SPIN scooters and through Capital Improvement Program (CIP) awarded funds; the Capitol Hill Neighborhood Council, with the help of neighbors and transportation gurus, implemented a quick-build at the intersection of 600 North and 200 West with the goal to calm traffic entering the neighborhood and improve safety for people walking and bicycling.

The actual temporary design is part of the public input process for the neighborhood traffic calming initiative.
