In a formal letter dated April 17th, 2013 Utahns for Better Transportation (UBET) and the Sierra Club have made a formal request to the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT). The request is an appeal for an Alternative to the West Davis Highway.

“This is a formal request from Utahns for Better Transportation (UBET) and the Sierra Club to the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) to undertake additional study of an alternative-build solution that does not include the proposed new freeway. We have consulted with several experts and are optimistic that there may be a good strategy for creating a truly Shared Solution that leaves affected communities with something they’ll find far more appealing than an expensive, destructive, under-utilized freeway. The Shared Solution also would have fewer impacts on parklands, wetlands, and historic properties. Additionally, we request that this alternative be included in the Draft West Davis Corridor Environmental Impact Statement as one of the required alternatives on which to receive public input.”
