TRAILS & BIKE LANES
Mountain View Corridor (MVC) features 15 miles of biking and walking trails that run the entire length of the current roadway in Salt Lake County, with 9 miles of striped bike lanes from Redwood Road to Old Bingham Highway. In the future, the bike lanes will remain in place because that section of roadway will become the frontage road for the future freeway. Bike lanes cannot be constructed north of Old Bingham Highway because that section of roadway was built to function as outside lanes for the future freeway.
There are designated parking locations for the Mountain View Corridor Trail. View the interactive map for specific trail parking locations.
UDOT's First Radar Activated Bike Turn Signal
Utah's first radar activated bike turn signal was installed at Redwood Road and Porter Rockwell Blvd. at approximately 16000 South. This new bike turn signal was installed to address the high volume of vehicle and bike traffic in the area. The signal allows cyclists to turn left and enter MVC without crossing traffic, due to the speed difference between the motorists and cyclists in this area.
How Do Cyclists Activate the Signal?
To activate the signal, cyclists must stop in the designated radar detection zone on the right shoulder. After the traffic signal turns red and the bike signal turns green, cyclists can then safely make a left-hand turn. Cyclists should continue to observe all traffic laws, including obeying stoplights and traffic signs.
