Utah Transit Authority issues draft environmental study for 'Commuter Rail South' project


On Aug. 22, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) issued a Draft Environmental Study Report (ESR) for the proposed Provo-to-Salt Lake City FrontRunner “Commuter Rail South” project.

Construction on the 45-mile line could begin next year and be operational by 2012, UTA officials say. FrontRunner’s first phase — the 44-mile “Commuter Rail North” project — is currently under construction and will run from Salt Lake to Pleasant View. The line is scheduled to open in spring 2008.

A 30-day public comment period on the Commuter Rail South draft ESR began Aug. 22 and will end Sept. 21. UTA also has scheduled two draft ESR-related public hearing/open house meetings later this month.
