More bicycle paths planned for Salt Lake City

Local News

SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – Salt Lake City will soon have more bike paths.

It’s all a part of the Mayor Jackie Biskupski’s plan to make it easier for residents to use emission-free transportation.

“Our goal is to make it easier for cyclists to get around Salt Lake City in any direction,” said Mayor Biskupski. “We are developing a Master Transportation Plan that recognizes more and more people are using bicycles to get to their destination.”

A prominent bike path in the works is the 9-Line trail that will allow cyclists to go west to east from Redwood Road to Emigration Canyon. 

The corridor will have a walking and bicycling trail linking parks, open spaces, neighborhoods, and business areas.

The completed sections of this trail include:

  • Shared use path south of Indiana Avenue or 900 South from Redwood Road to 700 West
  • Sunnyside Avenue from Guardsman Way to Foothill Drive

These 9-Line paths in planning or design stages for completion during the upcoming construction seasons: 

  • 900 South from Lincoln Street to 1300 East (design phase)
  • Near Indiana Avenue from Redwood Road to the Surplus Canal (planning phase)
  • 900 South from 700 West to West Temple (design phase)
  • Sunnyside Avenue from Foothill Drive to Emigration Canyon (planning phase)
  • 900 South from West Temple to Lincoln Street (planning phase)

Another critical east/west bicycle corridor is 300 North, which is one of the few streets crossing I-15 without an interchange. Salt Lake City is working with transportation partners to build a bicycle and pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks near 500 West that will provide a safe, reliable connection. The designing will begin this fall, with construction starting in the spring.
