Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio Some Salt Lake City residents don't like the latest plans for a light rail extension to the airport.

Leah Reeves has become used to trains since she moved to her Salt Lake neighborhood in 1949, but, to her, that isn't the issue. "We're going to be landlocked," she said.

Reeves is more worried about a viaduct and what a set of tracks in front of her house would do to her property value. "Right now they're worth pretty good because of Gateway building and stuff," she explained

The route city planners are favoring would start at the Salt Lake Intermodal Hub. From there it would run along 600 West to a viaduct over FrontRunner and freight lines, then to North Temple, and finally down to the airport.

A public hearing on the issue is scheduled for next month.
