The period for public feedback on draft route recommendations is now closed
Salt Lake County continues to make strides in improving bicycle safety and designing a connected bicycle network that will provide more transportation options for residents and contribute to better air quality.
Salt Lake County's Active Transportation Implementation Plan builds upon previous planning efforts conducted by the county, individual cities, and regional partners such as Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and Utah Transit Authority (UTA).
The purpose of this plan is to identify and prioritize specific routes and spot improvements throughout the valley that contribute to safe connections between cities, townships, neighborhoods, schools, commercial centers, transit, parks, and regional off-street paths, such as the Jordan River Parkway.

Public input is critical to this process. Over 1,000 people participated in our online survey from March - April and an additional 100 + participated in adding feedback via an online interactive mapping tool.
In May/June, the county held a series of public meetings across the valley in which residents were encouraged to provide feedback on considerations toward building a regional bicycle network that is safe, convenient, and fun.
In October and November, public feedback was gathered on draft route recommendations via an interactive map where participants could comment on what they liked and disliked as well as indicate where they had concerns. The draft plan includes 272 miles of buffered and protected bike lanes and a total bike network of 638 miles.
We thank all of those who provided feedback throughout this process and look forward to finalizing the Active Transportation Implementation Plan in early 2017.
