Utah Transit Authority starts construction on another light-rail line


Today, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) will break ground on the 5.1-mile West Valley TRAX light-rail line.

Scheduled to be complete in 2015, the four-station line will branch off from the Salt Lake/Sandy line at the 2100 Central Pointe TRAX station. Daily ridership on the corridor is expected to total between 9,000 and 12,000 passengers by 2010.

The West Valley line is part of UTA’s FrontLines 2015 project, which also includes the Provo-to-Salt Lake City FrontRunner commuter-rail line and three other light-rail lines.
