SLCPD Announces Travel Impacts Ahead of Days of ‘47 Events
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is reminding community members about upcoming road closures during the 2022 Salt Lake City Days of ’47 Parade and Deseret News Marathon.
Beginning early Saturday, July 23, 2022 anyone living, working, or visiting Salt Lake City should expect significant and potentially lengthy road closures as participants and spectators navigate the Salt Lake City Days of ’47 Events.
Officers will be stationed throughout the marathon course and parade route to help ensure a safe and fun environment for all of those involved.
The Salt Lake City Police Department continues to work with the event organizers to lessen any impact on our community. To help ensure the safety of participants and spectators, traffic will be allowed to cross over the marathon route, when possible, but traffic will not be allowed to cross the parade route until the parade is finished. Some of these select street closures could be in place for up to seven hours. All roadway users are encouraged to follow all posted signs and directions from officers along the routes.
Road closure maps are available for review on the Salt Lake City Days of ‘47 website. Community members should review them and prepare to avoid those areas or delay travel, if possible. Please use extreme caution when traveling through the area as there will be a significant increase in vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic.
