UTA to begin work on light-rail project


Next week, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) will begin work on rebuilding the North Temple viaduct as part of the Airport TRAX light-rail project.

The construction of the viaduct, which crosses Union Pacific Railroad and UTA tracks, is expected to take 18 months to complete.

Once complete, the North Temple viaduct will be a shorter structure. The project includes roadway improvements, pedestrian walkways, bike lanes, security lighting and a passenger transfer from TRAX to FrontRunner.

The Airport TRAX line is a 6-mile light-rail extension that will connect with the existing TRAX system at Arena Station and run to Salt Lake International Airport.
