The Life on State Implementation Plan will study roadway realignments and development opportunities for the State Street corridor with the goal of making State Street a model for sustainable street design, urban design and planning for the region and Utah. It will build on the 2010 Life on State Vision that imagined State Street as Utah’s “great street” from the Capitol to Draper. The Life on State Implementation Plan will further refine the vision for Salt Lake and South Salt Lake through extensive public engagement and detailed modeling of alternative land use and transportation scenarios. The plan will deliver clear, actionable strategies that promote economic development, improve transportation options, address safety and security along the corridor, and celebrate our social and civic experience, making State Street Utah’s “great street”
State Street is a major transportation and business corridor with a history as Utah’s original state highway. But the street and neighborhood today have many challenges. There is potential for many positive changes as today’s urban revitalization changes this neighborhood. State Street can be a “Great Street” that is a gateway to our downtown neighborhoods and a safe, memorable destination of its own for people to live, work and play.
