UTA will be replacing 20 year-old rail between Arena and Temple Square TRAX stations from June 29 to July 7. Construction crews will be working 24 hours per day over nine days to complete this project as quickly as possible. Volunteers will be located at City Center, Temple Square, Arena and North Temple Stations to help riders get to their destination. Recommended rider and driver travel options are highlighted below:

Blue Line Riders

  • North to Salt Lake Central: travel on the Blue Line to any station from Draper to Temple Square, walk or bus shuttle to Arena station, then continue from Planetarium to Salt Lake Central stations (Bus Header will say Bus Bridge)
  • South to Draper: travel on the Blue Line to any station from Salt Lake Central to Arena, walk or shuttle to Temple Square station, then continue from City Center to Draper stations (Bus Header will say Bus Bridge)
  • SLC To FrontRunner: travel on the Blue Line to Temple Square station, then take the bus shuttle to North Temple Station to catch the FrontRunner train (Bus Header will say FrontRunner North)

Green Line Riders

  • North to Airport: travel on the Green Line to any station from West Valley to Temple Square, walk or shuttle to Arena, then continue from North Temple to Airport stations (Bus Header will say Bus Bridge)
  • South to West Valley: travel on the Green Line to any station from Airport to Arena, walk or shuttle to Temple Square station, then continue from City Center to West Valley stations (Bus Header will say Bus Bridge)
  • SLC To FrontRunner: travel on the Blue Line to Temple Square station, then shuttle to North Temple Station to catch the FrontRunner train (Bus Header will say FrontRunner North)


ADA Riders

  • Arena Station: access ramps will not be available
  • Blue Line ADA boarding at City Center and Temple Square: Blue Line trains will be on the south/west track only, so the southbound ADA ramp will be used for both northbound and southbound trains. Green Line trains will run on the north/east track on low floor trains so the northbound ADA ramp will be closed

Drivers

  • East\West on South Temple: single lane traffic from 400 West to West Temple, utilize North Temple and 100 South as alternate routes for better east and westbound access
  • Business Parking: full access to Vivint Arena, Bonneville Communications, Radisson Hotel, Abravanel Hall and Temple Square parking
