Utah Transit Authority will begin major earthwork activities in the I-80 corridor in preparation for laying new rail on the Airport TRAX line. The new line will extend TRAX service from downtown Salt Lake City to Salt Lake International Airport.
Heavy construction work
begins the week of August 31 on the western end of the new Airport light rail
line. Work in this area will progress very quickly because TRAX will run in a
dedicated corridor from 2400 West to the airport. The six-mile line has been in
construction for approximately seven months.
