This week crews continue setting forms on the stairs, and they are scheduled to begin pouring concrete next week. Steel work and welding will continue for several weeks.
Due to the adjacent construction on the new apartments, the project pedestrian and bicycle crossing on the north side of the project has been shifted southward a few feet, but remains open and accessible. If any extra assistance is needed to traverse the project, please contact a member of the construction crew.
Although the bridge has been raised, it remains closed to the public. Work continues on and around the bridge. For your safety, stay away from the bridge and keep clear of the construction zone. Cross the railroad tracks on the north side of the project.
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 z
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.

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.
