Urban Trails

More trails will soon crisscross Salt Lake City thanks to recent funding allocations. In 2014, the Salt Lake City Council earmarked more than $2.5 million for bolstering the City’s urban trail network. The move represents the City’s focus on improving trail offerings between neighborhoods and education, business and civic centers.

Allocations include:
  • $1 million to improve portions of the McClelland trail from 800 South to 3300 South. Improvements will include pedestrian and bicycle enhancements, improved street crossings, benches and lighting.
  • $900,000 to create a pathway on the North side of Sunnyside Ave. between 1300 East and Foothill for bicyclists, pedestrians and other users. The pathway will comprise a segment of the Trans-Valley Corridor.
  • $593,000 for improvements to the 9 Line Trail which follows the old Union Pacific rail line on 900 South from 200 West to the Surplus Canal. The trail is an effort to provide a major pedestrian and bicycle link connecting the City’s east and west neighborhoods. Improvements will include: landscaping, benches, lights, pavement, signage and more.

Other  related City accomplishments include discussing the 9 Line Master Plan, considering narrowing 1100 West to make a longer, uninterrupted section of the 9 Line, and the opening of the Draw in Sugar House, a county-led project that connects Sugar House Park with Hidden Hollow.  More residents will be able to walk or bike along rivers and through historic neighborhoods for errands, recreation  and commutes.
