DRAPER, Utah (AP) -- Transportation officials are taking public input on plans to extend Utah Transit Authority's TRAX line.

A draft environmental analysis has been completed for extending the existing rail line from Sandy to Draper.

UTA is proposing to initially build a short operable segment by 2015 and then extend it at a later date.

The study is available for public review and comment until Feb. 5.

UTA and the Federal Transit Administration will hold two public hearings on the draft plan:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 13, 5 to 8 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Elementary, Skaggs Catholic Center, 11800 S. 300 East, Draper
  • Thursday, Jan. 14, 4 to 7 p.m. at the Sandy City Senior Center, 9310 S. 1300 East.
