LAYTON, Utah (AP) -- Work on the North Legacy Project hasn't completely stalled.

Even though the Utah Department of Transportation has put $3.9 billion worth of road projects on hold statewide, a study looking at possible routes for the highway project in Weber County is ongoing.

Wasatch Front Regional Council Deputy Director Doug Hattery says the study will look at alternative routes for the highway and recommend one corridor to be preserved for eventual construction.

North Legacy is a planned extension of the 14-mile Legacy Highway, which is an alternative to Interstate 15. North Legacy would run north-south through the western side of Weber and north Davis counties.

Construction is still at least 10 years away. The study should be done within the next year.
