project overview

Salt Lake City Public Utilities is replacing the existing water main on State Street between 1st Avenue and 200 North in Salt Lake City. This key public utility is over 100 years old and needs to be replaced to enhance the infrastructure for downtown growth. Crews are also performing sewer line work at various locations of 200 N and Hillside Ave.


Work will include installation of new water lines, replacement of existing residential water meters, and sewer rehabilitation work. These efforts will require significant impacts to nearby residents, businesses, and the traveling public.

pedestrian access

State Street & North Temple

Pedestrians will be able to cross east/west across State Street and north/south across North Temple by pressing the crosswalk button and waiting for the walk signal. 

State Street & 200 North / Hillside Ave./300 North

The existing crosswalks will remain open whenever possible. These may close when work is happening directly at the specific intersections to ensure pedestrian safety. 



Work began Monday, April 25, with anticipated completion in August 2022.


Traffic impacts are severe. Drivers should avoid the area whenever possible.
