300 North Pedestrian Bridge


Construction Update
Crews continue doing steel work, installing supporting steel beams for both towers and constructing steel stairs this week. This work will continue for several weeks and will take place on and near the towers and will not cause additional public impacts.
The bridge that will connect the towers is expected to be delivered on September 14. As a result, the construction zone will be expanded westward to make room for the bridge, and there will be no street parking on the west side of the project beginning at 540 West for one week, beginning on September 12. Access to parking areas at the Diamond Mattress building and the Citizens West apartment building will remain open. The bridge will be installed on September 18.
The sidewalk on the north side of the construction zone will be closed during the bridge installation on September 18, but personnel will be available to help pedestrians safely navigate the construction zone.
Those walking and bicycling are able to travel along 300 North at 500 West, but only on the north side of the road. For your safety, please do not use the sidewalk on the south side of 300 North in the construction zone. Use caution as you approach and cross the railroad tracks on the north side of 300 North.

Project Schedule and Impacts
Start Construction: October 2021
End Construction: Summer 2023
Crews will be working Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Occasional night and weekend work may be required.
300 North will be closed to vehicular traffic from 490 West to 500 West for the duration of the project. Eastbound vehicles on 300 North will not be able to turn left or right onto 500 West and will need to access 500 West from either 400 North or 200 North. North Temple should be used as an east/west detour. During construction, people walking and bicycling will be able to travel along 300 North, but only on the north side of the road. Parking will be restricted along the south side of the intersection. Dust, noise and vibrations will occur during working hours but will be especially impactful during the brief time period when vertical columns are driven into the ground.
Schedules are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions, weather conditions and material availability.

Project History
The Utah Transit Authority, in partnership with Salt Lake City Transportation, Engineering and Facilities Divisions will begin construction on a new bridge for walking and bicycling along the south side of 300 North at approximately 500 West. The bridge will span 500 West, in addition to three Union Pacific Railroad and two UTA FrontRunner tracks.
It will provide a more efficient alternative for people walking and bicycling, who often experience lengthy wait times while freight trains pass, stop, and back up due to the railroad yard to the north. Construction is expected to be completed in the summer of 2023.
