For community safety & health, we support UDOT in achieving their “Zero Fatalities” campaign. The innumerable car, bicycle & pedestrian accidents can be reduced with a slower speed design and protected bike lanes (currently not part of UDOT’s plan). Through UDOT’s LCC EIS process, they have the chance to redesign SR-210’s Wasatch Blvd between the canyons section to accommodate bicyclists and promote Active Transportation and Transit. We’re asking UDOT to return to the 35-mph speed design they committed to July 2, 2019. Watch the video here ->
Taxpayers of Salt Lake Valley have already weighed in: “No high speed, multi-lane highway through remaining foothills.”
In 2019, UDOT received funding from the Utah State Legislature to reduce peak ski season traffic from mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon up to Alta utilizing NEPA (National Environmental Protection Act).
To be successful in keeping UDOT from widening Wasatch Blvd into 6 to 7 lane arterial, we must ensure UDOT adheres to NEPA process. This means they must thoroughly screen every comment that meets their stated goal & they must make regional consideration.
Labeled in UDOT preferences as “Wasatch Blvd Expansion”, local outdoor enthusiasts and residents cry for improvement not gross expansion. https://saltlaketribune-ut.newsmemory.com/?selDate=20201217&editionStart=Salt+Lake+Tribune&goTo=A09

Petition to UDOT & Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC):
“Wider, more numerous, fast-moving vehicular lanes is NOT the answer with Utah’s Emergency Drought and severe air quality problems. Southeastern SL Valley needs a REGIONAL transit system. All stakeholders agree that Active Transportation & Express, cleaner transit is the answer to growing population & associated mobility issues.”
