UTA launches construction on first 'FrontLines' corridor

Today, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) will break ground on the 10.5-mile Mid-Jordan TRAX light-rail line, the first of five corridors to be built under the agency's FrontLines 2015 program.

The nine-station line will parallel the existing Bingham Branch Railroad from the 6400 South TRAX station southwest to the Sandy/Salt Lake station to south of Welby Junction. From there, the line will run south toward Kennecott Land's Daybreak development in South Jordan. The project is scheduled to be complete by 2015.

UTA's FrontLines 2015 program also includes the West Valley, Draper and Airport TRAX lines, as well as a FrontRunner commuter-rail extension from Salt Lake City to Provo.
