PUBLIC INPUT NEEDED

Thanks to those who participated in the first and second Central Corridor Transit Study comment periods. A total of 260 public comments were received regarding the five initial and three refined alignments.

 

The transit alignments have been narrowed down to one Preferred Alternative.  The Preferred Alternative includes a bus rapid transit (BRT) line from Lehi to Provo, similar to the Utah Valley Express (UVX).

You can provide feedback in the following ways:

  1. Participate in one of two upcoming online public meetings. The Preferred Alternative will be presented and the public will have an opportunity to engage in a live question and answer session on Monday, Oct. 26, from 6 to 7 p.m. or Thursday, Oct. 29, from 7 to 8 p.m. The information presented will be the same at both meetings. A link to the meeting will be provided here 15 minutes prior to the presentation start time. 

  2. Provide input using the interactive map. 

  3. Call the project hotline at 385-355-3133.

STUDY OVERVIEW

Seven cities in Utah County, in collaboration with the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), and the Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), have preformed a study to evaluate options for faster and more frequent high-capacity transit service between Lehi and Provo. The participating cities are Lehi, American Fork, Pleasant Grove, Lindon, Orem, Vineyard, and Provo.

Transit is a vital part of the broader transportation network needed to accommodate growth and guide  planning in Utah County. The study is building on the foundation of previous planning and is one of multiple efforts to enhance transportation and mobility in this area. The study has evaluated ridership, travel times, land use, economics and costs for a range of alternatives which has led to the development of a Preferred Alternative. Public and stakeholder input has been gathered throughout the process and has been a key component to shaping the study. 

 

The desired outcome of the study is the selection of a Preferred Alternative (transit alignment and mode) that can be advanced to further evaluation in environmental study and engineering.
