Utah Transit Authority recently placed the final girder on the new West Valley TRAX bridge over Union Pacific's Roper Yard. The bridge is the largest single structure on the West Valley TRAX line and its completion is an important milestone on the project. The West Valley TRAX Line will extend TRAX service from 21-hundred South Central Pointe station on the North-South TRAX line southwest to West Valley City Hall.
It's all part of the Front lines 2015 project that includes the Airport TRAX line. The Airport TRAX line is a six-mile light rail extension that connects with the existing TRAX system will combine with the University TRAX line and connect the top three trip generators in the entire state, the airport, downtown Salt Lake City and the University of Utah.
Great things are happening in Utah, particularly when it comes to our transportation infrastructure.
