9 Line Trail
This paved trail, constructed in 2011, runs from Redwood Road to 700 West along the old 900 South railroad corridor owned by Salt Lake City. The corridor, which runs east-west at approximately 900 South, has now been dubbed the "9 Line" and intersects with the Jordan River Trail near 1000 West.Bicyclists continuing east of the trail can use bike lanes on 900 South to connect to bike lanes and TRAX light rail at 200 West.
Future plans for the corridor
This trail project is the initial step to improving the old rail corridor. Master planning for the current trail by the Planning Division was adopted in 2015.
The City is currently conducting a study to develop designs for extending the trail westward to connect to another proposed trail along the east side of the Surplus Canal, and eastward along 900 South and Sunnyside Avenue to connect with Liberty Park, Emigration Canyon and the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.
A special thanks to the University of Utah City & Metropolitan Planning students from the Salt Lake City Workshop who worked with residents, community organizations, and city officials to help convert the neglected rail corridor into a new urban amenity.
