Thousands of Salt Lake Valley residents will celebrate the 4th of July in Sugar House, and this year, they will be able to take transit
before and after the Arts Festival and Fireworks. Visitors will be able to avoid getting stuck in traffic thanks to an agreement reached with the Utah Transit Authority offering extended late-night service on the S-Line and TRAX. The last S-Line train leaving Sugar House will be at 11:20pm.
This will be the first year of transit service on the 4th of July. The extended service improves safety, reduces congestion, improves our air quality, and eases the inconvenience of added traffic in Sugar House. Visitors can park in public parking along the transit corridors and be brought back to their cars at the end of the night via S-Line or TRAX. A safe and easy walking route to Sugar House Park includes a new pedestrian tunnel that goes under 1300 East and through Hidden Hollow (behind Bed Bath & Beyond).
There is a parking lot along the S-Line at the State Street stop. Take advantage of it.
Specific scheduling information can be found on our website or facebook pages as well as http://www.rideuta.com.
Additionally, UTA has announced the S-Line scheduled will begin to match the hours of Trax at the end of August.
The Sugar House Park Authority is conducting a public survey regarding the future design of the pond. For all of us who enjoy and love Sugar House Park let’s speak up.
This month starts off with the 4th of July festival in the heart of Sugar House.
Thank you to the Sugar House Chamber for their work to pull off this festival and fApollo Burger for returning as the lead sponsor to bring you the fireworks!
We celebrate Independence Day and our freedom, but I am left wondering how engaged we are in the rights and freedom we are afforded. Salt Lake City has a primary election for Mayor this year and an estimated 20% of registered voters will actually vote. We celebrate the independence and freedom on the 4th of July as an honored tradition. Yet, too many citizens are not engaged in electing our leaders. Read More →
