Utah Transit Authority (UTA), in partnership with Salt Lake City (SLC), University of Utah, Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) and the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), has launched the TechLink TRAX Study to improve east-west, downtown Salt Lake City, and regional TRAX connectivity in Salt Lake City.
Study Area Map
The TechLink TRAX Study is building on previous studies and plans (see Documents) and will analyze potential light rail (TRAX) improvements including:
Realignment of the TRAX Red Line, with new service through the Granary District to the Ballpark Station
A new TRAX Orange Line, connecting Salt Lake City International Airport directly to the University of Utah, with improved service along the way and new service into Research Park
Modified TRAX Blue and Green Line operations
The TechLink TRAX Study team will take a close look at these improvements, develop and screen equitable and sustainable transit alternatives and prepare a final report that can then move into the federal environmental process.
