A group of agencies will sponsor a pair of public meetings this week on the feasibility of building light rail between the University of Utah and Salt Lake International Airport.
The informal hearings, designed to gather public input, are at 4 and 6 p.m. Thursday, May 9, in the cafeteria of Bryant Intermediate School, 40 S. 800 East.The gathering is part of a $750,000 study sponsored by the Wasatch Front Regional Council to decide how best to improve transportation between the U. and the airport via downtown Salt Lake City. It will also explore the viability of road widening and adding high-occupancy bus lanes to the corridor.
