The Folsom Trail and daylighting of City Creek will create a direct, comfortable, and beautiful connection between underserved west-side neighborhoods to employment and services in Downtown Salt Lake City. Communities, separated by railroad tracks, two freeways, and a redeveloping industrial area, will be linked once again. By uncovering City Creek, the health of the community will be improved, alleviating water quality impairments and improving access to nature.
