TAYLORSVILLE — Residents are invited to attend a public open house workshop on the Taylorsville Expressway Master Plan.

The meeting is Thursday, June 18, 6 p.m. in the Taylorsville City Hall Council Chambers, 2600 W. Taylorsville Blvd.

This planning effort is the next step in a recent study that called for the establishment of the Taylorsville-Murray Transit Project, which consists of a bus rapid transit line that will provide an east-west transit connection between the Salt Lake Community College Taylorsville Redwood Campus and the existing UTA FrontRunner and TRAX station in Murray.

A key segment of the route will be located within the 4700 South right-of-way, extending eastward from Redwood Road near the college to approximately 800 West and the eastern city limits.

The vision for the 4700 South corridor, according to the city, is a “complete street" that will include high-quality urban amenities and design features such as a comprehensive streetscape system and unified architecture and landscape.

At the open house, residents and other interested parties can review planning and design concepts, discuss options with the planning team and city staff, and provide ideas and thoughts for the corridor.
