Starting this summer accessing 1300 south in Salt Lake City might be a challenge. Construction is slated to close down the bridge over the railroad tracks between 500 and 700 west for the next year.
The $10 million facelift includes a full deck replacement, widening of the overpass, seismic upgrades and improved pedestrian and cyclist access. Salt Lake City will select a contractor for the project this spring and begin construction as early as June. It’s being paid for through the federal highway trust fund with a 6% match from Salt Lake City.
