West Davis Corridor comments due August 31

By Amy Brunvand

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has released a Final Environmental Impact Statement for the West Davis Corridor, 19 miles of new freeway that slices through human communities and bird habitat near Farmington Bay.

The EIS states that the project is needed to improve regional and peak-period “mobility,” a misleading term that means “flow of through traffic” (not local access to neighborhoods or shopping centers). Public comment is open through August 31.
