Utah Transit Authority to launch construction on commuter-rail line


Tomorrow, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) will break ground on the FrontRunner South commuter-rail line, launching construction on the third of five rail lines to be built under the agency's FrontLines 2015 program.

The project will extend the existing Ogden-to-Salt Lake City Front Runner line 44 miles south to Provo. Scheduled to be complete in 2012, the eight-station line will run along existing Union Pacific Railroad right of way.  

UTA recently launched construction on two other FrontLines projects — the West Valley and Mid-Jordan TRAX  light-rail lines. The agency expects to begin construction on the Draper and Airport TRAX lines during the next year.
