UDOT asks for public input on I-15 alternatives from Farmington to SLC

Nov 14, 2022, 12:05 PM | Updated: 2:16 pm

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Transportation is asking people to weigh in on some of the alternatives for travel along Interstate 15 from Farmington to Salt Lake City.

They’re taking cues from the community on how they feel about transportation. What would make it easier to get to where you need to go, not only by car, but foot and bike.

“A year ago, the department looked at this corridor as it needs reconstruction,” Tiffany Pocock, UDOT project manager said.

UDOT surveyed people in Spring 2022 living in the surrounding areas of Davis County, North Salt Lake, and Salt Lake and then whittled down their suggestions to what they call alternatives.

They’re studying the area along the I-15 corridor between the U.S. 89 interchange in Farmington and the I-80 West/400 South Interchange in Salt Lake City.

It’s a big footprint, so people have plenty to say about it.

“They really wanted the respect from moving goods and services on I-15 to then slowing down and understanding that you’re now entering into a community and thinking about all of the walkers bikers scooters cars and trucks at all need to kind of use those interchanges,” Pocock said.

This is merely a footprint now. UDOT will weigh what the community wants – along with the natural and environmental impact, so, it could look very different.

Now is the time for people to make their voice heard.

“We want to make sure that we improve the quality of life through transportation so valuable feedback is needed now,” Pocock said.

You can learn more about all of the alternatives at three open houses scheduled this week:

  • November 14 – virtual meeting via zoom on Monday, 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. (participation details found here)
  • November 15 – Open House at Rose Park Elementary, 5-7 p.m. (1105 West 1000 North, Salt Lake City)
  • November 16 – Open House at South Davis Recreation Center, 5-7 p.m. (550 North 200 West, Bountiful)

Those who would like to learn more and provide feedback on the alternatives should click here. 

Visitors may provide input using a variety of methods available at the study website, including the option to leave comments on an interactive map. Construction could begin as early as 2026 and the legislature has appropriated $1.6 billion for the project.
