Randall Jeppesen reportingA new TRAX line designed to connect the southwestern end of Salt Lake County with downtown Salt Lake is now under construction.
With the wave of a green flags, a trackhoe digs the first pile of dirt in the new Mid-Jordan TRAX line.
Don McCrory of West Jordan watched from a distance in his wheelchair. "It makes it a whole lot easier to get around and to have some mobility," he said.
No one could be more excited for this TRAX line than Midvale Mayor JoAnn Seghini. "It'll take you right to downtown Salt Lake, or it will take you right out to Daybreak, or it'll take you right out to the Jordan Valley hospital," she said.
The line will add nine new TRAX stops on its way out to Daybreak.
