Capitol Hill Traffic Study Proposals and Analysis

The Neighborhood Council held an Open House with InterPlan, UDOT and SLC Transportation to discuss the work that has been done over the past several months to find solutions to traffic problems in our neighborhoods. There was significant analysis of the traffic problems and various solutions were presented as possible options.

Neighbors and interested parties were invited to provide input and suggestions relative to the proposed options. Attached is the presentation of the analysis and solutions provided by InterPlan, UDOT and SLC Transportation. Please take time to review this information and provide feed back on this blog. The feedback will be used to further refine solution options in the future.

Our July Council meeting will include further discussion regarding these options. Again, please provide your input and suggestions …. the more input and participation we, as a community put into this effort, the better the opportunity to find long term, meaningful solutions.
