Salt Lake City's downtown streetcar is envisioned to enhance and accelerate walkable, transit-oriented redevelopment in the city's downtown core and in the Granary District to the south and west. In downtown, the streetcar will serve as a pedestrian circulator, while it is expected to spark economic development in the Granary.
Meadowbrook Station is a light rail stop in an older industrial area near the center of the Salt Lake Valley. It has the potential to provide residents and business owners convenient rail access to downtown, the University of Utah, and many other regional centers in our valley.
Salt Lake City’s Depot District lies on the western edge of downtown and encompasses both land around Salt Lake Central Station, where the region’s transit systems converge, and land directly north of the station and west of the Gateway development. Historically surrounded by a rail yard and freeway viaducts, the land was largely ignored for decades. Now, with the viaducts shortened and the rail consolidated, the land is poised for growth.
Already the primary destination for shopping, employment, and entertainment in southern Salt Lake County, downtown Sandy is envisioned as a thriving mixed-use urban center. A walkable main street anchored on one end by Sandy City Hall and on the other end by South Towne Mall will create a vibrant environment. The TRAX light rail stop will be linked through the area to the nearby Frontrunner commuter rail stop via a downtown circulator. And skiers will be able to find lodging, food, and shopping, while easily accessing the nearby Wasatch Mountain resorts using public transportation.
Existing destinations include Jordan Commons, South Town Expo Center, South Town Mall, Jordan High School, the Real Stadium, BD Medical, Workers Compensation Fund and Sandy's City Hall. This area also is connected to the Dimple Dell trail and the Jordan River Parkway.
