Tribune Editorial: Don’t stop SLC airport TRAX short of airport 7.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Let’s start by stating the obvious. We’re not going to build a $2 billion airport and make people walk a quarter mile to get to it. There is a standoff over who will pay $68 million to extend Utah Transit Authority’s TRAX line into Salt Lake City International Airport’s new terminal. UTA says it has only committed to cover about $15 million, and that was based on a long-ago assumption that it would merely be extending the track and building a new station similar to the current one. Airport desi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Yampa River Core Trail won&#39;t get a speed limit 20.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Concerned about becoming a "nanny state" and adopting rules the city can’t enforce, the Steamboat Springs City Council has decided against setting a speed limit on the Yampa River Core Trail. Instead, the city will rely on its existing trail etiquette rules and self policing to avoid conflicts on the commuter trail when electric bicycles are legally added to the mix later this month. The council last week was divided on the question of whether to set the speed limit at 10 or 15 miles per hour. An initial recommendation from city staff to set it at 20 miles per hour was quickly passed over after it was met with concern by some community members. The council decided against setting any speed limit at all after a plea from City Manager Gary Suiter. “We should only adopt rules or laws that we can enforce,” Suiter said. “We do not have the resources to put people on the Core Trail and ticket people who are speeding more than 10 miles per hour.” Suiter said he has not heard any complaints about cyclists ...

E-bikes could gain access to Steamboat&#39;s Core Trail this month 9.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Electric bicycles could soon be legally zipping down the Yampa River Core Trail. The city’s elected officials could as soon as May 16 adopt new rules to allow two classes of e-bikes on the Core Trail as part of a yearlong pilot program. But city officials are recommending the city take a more conservative approach than the state is taking for now and keep the e-bikes off of other types of trails, including Emerald Mountain. A new state law that will take effect in early August will allow Class 1 and Class 2 e-bikes on any path where bicycles are authorized to travel. The Class 1 bicycles have an electric motor that just offers the rider a pedal assist. Class 2 bicycles have an electric drive system that the rider can engage with a throttle. The new state rule will also clarify that electric bicycles are not classified as motor vehicles. Local municipalities have the power to set their own rules and make them more or less restrictive. If the City Council does nothing, the rules here will default to the ...

Trump FCC’s Plan to End Net Neutrality Rests on Alternative Facts and Empty Promises 28.4.2017 American Prospect
Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call via AP Images FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai testifies during the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee hearing on Oversight of the Federal Communications Commission.  On Wednesday, the head of Donald Trump’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) previewed his plan to undo net neutrality, the principle that protects the open internet from blocking, slowdowns, and censorship. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s move threatens to erase one of the most important public-interest victories of the Obama years, defang a much-needed watchdog, and leave people everywhere at the mercy of the country’s most-hated phone and cable companies. Pai, a former Verizon lawyer Trump elevated in January, has long been an enemy of the open internet. He sees his job as representing the interests of the powerful corporations that used to cut his checks. He doesn’t care about the millions of people who pushed the FCC to pass landmark net neutrality rules and restore its authority under Title II of the ...

Highway 99 tolling: Here’s how much you could pay, according to new analysis 27.4.2017 Seattle Times: Local

What had looked like a solution for the problem of setting toll prices on the tunnel will not raise enough money to cover existing debts, a new analysis shows. And raising tolling prices will only result in more cars diverting to already crowded alternative routes.
