McClelland Shared Street (Phase 2a of the McClelland Trail)

Responsive Margin

The McClelland Shared Street (Phase 2a of the McClelland Trail) is complete!

Project Overview

The McClelland Trail is a comfortable route for walking and bicycling between residential neighborhoods, recreational opportunities, shopping destinations, and community gathering places. Phase 1 of the McClelland Trail was completed first, between 800 South and 2100 South.

The project called “McClelland Shared Street Phase 2a” transformed the two blocks of the trail along McClelland Street, from 2100 South to Sugarmont Avenue, in the core of the Sugar House Business District. This phase (2a) implemented “soft improvements” that did not require a complete rebuild of the street, such as:

  • Landscaping
  • Signage
  • Outdoor dining
  • A narrower roadway
  • More crosswalks

The end result is a pedestrian-scale, low-speed, more beautiful place to be, rather than just a place to drive and park. This is especially important to the success and happiness of the businesses, patrons, and hundred of families that are located, visit, or live on these blocks.

The City thanks all who have expressed their desire for such a change. These desires were recorded in the Sugar House Master Plan, the Circulation and Streetscape Amenities Plan for the Sugar House Business District (2013), the Jordan and Salt Lake City Canal Trail Implementation Plan (2013), the Fairmont Park Concept Plan, the Salt Lake City Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan (2015), and surveys and dozens and dozens of meetings in this multi-year process (see links and downloads at the bottom of this page).

An application by the Sugar House Community Council in 2018 and the support of the City Council for CIP funding ($500,000) in 2019, especially, have made this project’s construction possible.
