(KSL News) -- This afternoon Commuter Rail held it's first of four open houses for it's Weber County commuter rail project.
The line will run from Pleasant View in Weber County to Salt Lake, a total of 44 miles and include nine stops. The open houses are being held to encourage public comment on the project.
Steve Meyer, UTA Commuter Rail Manager of Engineering & Construction: "People can come in and interact with the designers. We want the public's comment so we don't have to wait until the bulldozer is in your back yard after we already started it. We want to know now."
The final environmental impact statement will come out in the fall.
UTA hopes to begin construction next spring and open the new line in 2007.
The other open houses will be held from 4 to 8 pm on Monday at the Salt Lake City Library, Wednesday at Clearfield High School, and Thursday at the Ogden's Union Station.
