Op-ed: Saving a few minutes on you commute. But at what cost? 9.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
We know we can’t build our way out of congestion. Evidence from around the country shows that expanding and building new freeways ultimately increases congestion by attracting more automobile use. Nevertheless, on Thursday, a public comment period began on the final environmental impact statement for construction of the West Davis Highway, and it ends Aug. 31. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) says the road is needed to cut auto commute time by a few minutes during peak rush hour. At...

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 ...
