Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio Lehi City officials are telling land owners in the path of a proposed freeway to go ahead and build, and that includes a new school.
City officials oppose a freeway connector planned to run through 2100 North, and now they're asking the Alpine School District to go forward with plans to build an elementary school in that same area. "A freeway situation would divide the city again," Lehi City Councilman James Dixon
Dixon says putting a school there would not block UDOT's plans but council members do hope UDOT will decide against the freeway.
Lehi resident Tiffany Walton says she doesn't want to take the chance. "Children and a freeway doesn't mix, sorry," she said.
The school district has not made a decision on where to build Lehi's next elementary.
