There are two gaps remaining to be completed in the 45-mile Jordan River Trail. When complete, the trail will provide a continuous, paved, vehicle-separated trail network through the heart of the State of Utah’s most populated area.
200 South to North Temple Gap
Design – Summer 2016
Construction – Spring – Summer 2017
Estimated Opening – Fall 2017
Lead Agency: Salt Lake City
This section of missing trail will connect the Jordan River Trail between the historic Fisher Mansion at 200 South and the Utah State Fairpark on North Temple.
Salt Lake City has a consultant working to finalize the design for the bridge that spans the three active freight rail lines that cross the river in this area. The funding for this bridge has been secured, the bridge has been designed, and Salt Lake City anticipates construction beginning in March of 2017.
14600 South to 15000 South Gap
Design – Summer 2015
Construction begins – Winter 2016
Estimated Opening – Early Summer 2017
Lead Agency: Salt Lake County
There is a section of missing trail between the Jordan River Parkway Trail from the Springview Farms Trailhead on 14600 South to an existing section of trail near 15000 South in Bluffdale.
This section is currently under construction, and trail users are recommended to use 1300 West between 14600 South and 15000 South to connect through this section. There is an at-grade crossing with a pedestrian activated crossing beacon at 14600 South.
Funding for the trail is being provided through a voter-approved 2012 Salt Lake County Regional Parks and Trails Bond.
