Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio A group of Lehi residents is planning a rally to let UDOT know it doesn't want a new freeway going through town.

Developer Dave Clock leads the group called "Cost" -- Citizens Organized for Smarter Transportation. His development near Utah Lake could be affected if the Mountain View Corridor comes through town. He says his opposition is about a lot more than that.

Dave Clock, developer: "We are very firmly entrenched in trying to keep a major highway out of north Utah County right now."

He says a highway would destroy wetlands, homes and cause pollution and trash through residential areas.

Dave Clock: "We are in favor of tree-lined boulevards... logically planned tree-lined boulevards."

Clock will hold a rally Wednesday night in Lehi. UDOT will hold an open house Thursday to collect input and discuss their proposals.

Rally by "Citizens Organized for Smarter Transportation."
When: 7 p.m. Wednesday
Where: Lehi Legacy Center, south gym, 153 N. 100 East

UDOT will hold open house on Mountain View Corridor alternatives in Utah County. 2100 North in Lehi is now under consideration.
When: 5-7:30 p.m. Thursday
Where: Sego Lily Elementary School, 550 E. 900 North, Lehi
