Greg Neft, KSL Newsradio TRAX is celebrating a west-side milestone today.
The Federal Transit Administration has approved the final enviornmental impact statement. That clears the way for the UTA to start buying property and moves the project one step closer to construction.
"It took 50 years to get the interstate where it is today and all the ancillary system that feed it. We're doing the same thing with TRAX, only we haven't got 50 years. We've gotta move this thing along a lot faster, and we're moving fast now," explained John Inglish, general manager of UTA.
The line will connect the Daybreak development with the Sandy TRAX station.
