UDOT Releases US-89 State Environmental Study Draft

Draft Includes Preferred Alternative for Future US-89 Operations

 

OGDEN– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has released its draft US-89 State Environmental Study.

The draft study, which reflects the preferred alternative for the US-89 corridor from Farmington to I-84 in Uintah, is now available for public viewing on the project website. The preferred alternative was determined after over forty concepts underwent a rigorous screening process to evaluate the most feasible, environmentally responsible, and best addressed concerns raised by the public.

UDOT will also hold a public hearing on Thursday September 7, to obtain public comment on the environmental study draft. The hearing will take place from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Davis Conference Center, 800 Heritage Park Boulevard in Layton. The public is invited to attend this meeting, to learn more about the study and its resulting recommendation.

“The main purpose of the public hearing is to provide clarity on the preferred alternative, as well as to gather public input,” said UDOT Project Manager Michael Romero. “Members of the project team will be available at the hearing to answer any questions.”

If unable to attend the hearing, the public is encouraged to review the US-89 State Environmental Study draft, and to make comments via the study website at “www.udot.utah.gov/us89”, by email to “us89@utah.gov,” or by phone at 888-752- US89 (8789). Comments may also be made by mail to: The US-89 State Environmental Study, c/o FrontLine Public Involvement, P.O. Box 1033, Farmington, UT 84025.

The formal public comment period begins Thursday August 24, and continues through Monday September 25.

    Hello,
    I live on Valley View Dr. in Layton on the West side between Hwy 89 and Valley View. How can I find out how my home and homes near me will be
    impacted by the 89 project.
    Also if our home is not taken is there a consideration of a sound wall?
    Thank You.
    Sincerely
    Debora Moss
