What is the 800 West Neighborhood Byway?
Starting spring 2021, Salt Lake City Public Utilities will rehabilitate the 800 West sewer pipeline. Then in 2022, Salt Lake City will reconstruct 800 West from 600 South to 900 South (thanks to the 2018 voter-approved Funding Our Future bond). Reconstruction projects include full replacement of pavement, and potentially curb and gutter if it’s damaged. The plan for the roadway design is to be determined, and may include some changes to intersections, pedestrian crossings, bikeways, bus stops, road striping, and/or parking.
This street, 800 West from 600 South to 900 South, has also been identified as a future neighborhood byway in the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Neighborhood byways are traffic-calmed streets improved especially for walking and bicycling. They typically feature low volumes and speeds, crossing improvements, and some identity improvements. The City will be evaluating enhancements at key intersections, including 800 South/800 West, and looking for other ways this reconstruction project can better support the goals of the byway.
What We’ve Heard
Thanks to everyone that took the 800 West survey! We received many questions about the project, as well as multiple comments supportive of street improvements that would beatify the area, slow traffic, and make the street more comfortable for bicyclists and pedestrians. Stay tuned for the next update about this project!
