Transportation - McClelland Street Design Options

Redesigning McClelland Street in Sugar House

Project Location

The Salt Lake City Transportation Division is developing options for re-designing McClelland Street between 2100 South and Sugarmont Drive. The goal is to identify the option that best meets the vision and goals from the Sugar House Master Plan, and which are supported by the Sugar House Circulation Plan, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan, and the Jordan and Salt Lake City Canal Trail Implementation Plan.

Please provide your input on the options by visiting the topic on Open City Hall (click to open survey in a new window).
