Route description[edit]

The highway begins just west of the interchange with I-15 at 800 West. Immediately following that intersection, a short viaduct begins. After the structure tops out, the single-point urban interchange begins at exit 309 on I-15. Past the SPUI, the viaduct crosses over 600 West, 500 West, and the Union Pacific/Utah Transit Authority train tracks. The viaduct structure reaches grade-level at 400 West and continues east for another block before terminating at US-89 (Beck Street).[2]
