(KSL News) The Utah Transit Authority could start work on the southern stretch of commuter rail by early next year.

The transit agency plans to release a draft environmental study on the FrontRunner South project tomorrow.

The Deseret Morning News reports the study details how UTA will manage things such as property acquisitions in cities for park-and-ride lots, as well as noise concerns and other environmental issues.

The southern leg of FrontRunner will run from Provo to Salt Lake City with eight stops. It's expected to be completed by 2012 or 2013.
