Common “Cents”: How a Freeway Project Connected a Community
Biking Tour of Utah’s Technology Corridor
Join us for a biking tour of the I-15 Technology Corridor. This $450 million freeway project was originally designed to improve traffic flow and upgrade essential roadway infrastructure. However, Utah’s transportation agencies wanted to ensure that biking and walking infrastructure was also integrated into the project design.
The Utah Department of Transportation, the Utah Transit Authority, the Mountainland Association of Governments, and Lehi City teamed with Smart Growth America to identify cost-effective opportunities for connecting regional trails, increasing safety for users, and improving the overall experience for pedestrians and cyclists.
Their efforts led to critical changes in the region that have helped to promote Utahns quality of life through better mobility, a more connected community, active transportation opportunities that promote good health and trail amenities that support businesses in attracting a highly qualified workforce.
Tour attendees will be required to bring their own bike and helmet. Free UTA transit passes will be provided upon request. Attendees are encouraged to ride their bike to the tour. Bottled water, healthy snacks and a Move Utah-branded bag will also be available to all attendees. The wearing of comfortable attire is encouraged. The tour is free and open to the public but advanced registration is required.
