Transportation - 900 South

900 South Reconstruction & 9-Line Trail (Lincoln Street - 1300 East)

In 2018 or 2019, Salt Lake City will reconstruct 900 South from Lincoln Street (950 East) to 1300 East. To repair this badly deteriorated street, the project will reconstruct the road base, make minor utility improvements, and repave in concrete. This project will take 6 months once construction begins.

Project Update - February 14

Thank you to everyone who has given your thoughtful input on 900 South Reconstruction / 9-Line Trail from Lincoln to 1300 East.

More time to do it right: Following on our round of public input and the community open house on February 8, the design team has decided to slow the project down in order to better explore a more robust set of design options with the community, particularly for the 1100 East/Gilmer/900 South intersection. We generally heard good support for the addition of the trail. We heard multiple requests to take a step back, include additional community input, and develop a timeline to allow for additional input prior to construction.

Next steps / additional input: The City's next step will be to develop an outline/schedule for additional meetings at the concept level, inviting input and collaboration from neighbors and the community at large. To get on our email list for project design and construction updates, please email 900South@slcgov.com.

We will also continue to have discussions on the design with businesses along the corridor, in order to better understand your concerns and constraints. 

Input is still welcome through our online survey through February 15. However, know that the design of the 1100 East/Gilmer/900 South intersection will change from our original preferred design.

Revised construction timeline: The project construction timeline will also shift later; to be determined if construction will begin Fall 2018 or Spring/Summer 2019. We will update when we have a better forecast. 

We look forward to your further participation and collaboration.

What the Project Is:

As part of this reconstruction, a new bike path will be constructed on the park strip on the south side of the street, part of the 9-Line Trail Extension. Pedestrian crossings will be enhanced with shorter crossing distances and colored crosswalks. On street parking will remain.

The 9-Line Trail will eventually extend approximately 9 miles across the city, from Emigration Canyon to the Surplus Canal Trail (planned), west of Redwood Road.

Full Extent of 9-Line Trail (proposed)

The proposed trail will connect parks, neighborhoods, the University of Utah, and business areas at 9th & 9th East, Central 9th, and 9th & 9th West.

Proposed Intersection Redesign:

For years, Salt Lake City has heard requests from the community to address the "5 point" intersection of 1100 East/Gilmer/900 South. As part of this project, the city floated a possible redesign, which was met with a fair amount of concern from the community. As a result, the City will begin a new process of gathering additional community input on concepts for this location. A revided process and schedule will be posted shortly.

Incorporation of 9-Line Trail:

Following the conceptual design in the Trail Extension Study, construct a bike path on the south side of 900 South. On the steep hill, construct an uphill path & downhill bike lane.

Lane Reconfiguration

900 South will be striped with one lane in each direction and a center turn lane, to the configuation both east and west of this segment.
