UTA is replacing rails and switches in two areas between the City Center and Courthouse stations on Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City. Replacing the rail and switches in these areas is one of UTA’s most significant repair projects since TRAX opened in December 1999.

The tracks and switches have been in service for almost 20 years and have experienced considerable wear in these high traffic sections. UTA is completing this work to keep the system in good operating condition, ensuring the safety and reliability of TRAX for years to come.

To minimize the inconvenience to our riders, motorists, and affected residents and businesses, the condensed 24/7 construction schedule will allow crews to complete the project in just four weeks, as opposed to months of ongoing, intermittent disruption.

UTA is implementing multiple efforts - with support from project partners including the Utah Department of Transportation, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance - to provide information to UTA riders and motorists, as well as residents and business located in the construction area. All businesses in the affected area will be open during construction.

Detailed information and maps about the construction phases and corresponding impacts to riders and motorists is available at Regular updates during construction will be available on the website as well as UTA’s Twitter feed, @rideuta
