Another milestone was reached last month when a road study was completed on impact of constructing an East-West Connector. Below is a brief summary of the report, my analysis of the information provided, and suggestions on how you can impact the decision going forward. According to the study (click here to see the report).
- 80% of the traffic on a connector would be local traffic while 20% would be commuter.
- While all of the proposed routes have a positive impact on traffic, the central option has the best overall long term impact.
- All connector options would reduce traffic on both SR-92 and 700 N in American Fork.
There are issues with each of the locations for a connector which were analyzed (see the map above).
