This is the most important issue of the coming year in Utah. Thanks to the Tribune for publishing my letter today.
I have a question for Paul Mero, who wrote in the Dec. 3 Tribune that only roads, not rail, can relieve traffic congestion.
UTA and UDOT data show morning commute hour TRAX train riders would fill two additional lanes on I-15. Just where does he think the riders in packed morning TRAX cars would go without it?
Salt Lake City
Our state legislature will be trying to force us to use Salt Lake transit tax money to find new highways inside and outside Salt Lake County. The people and the County Council will be working to fund at least three new TRAX lines.
With Greg Curtis back in the Speaker’s chair, prospects are dicey.
