FINAL EIS

UDOT released the Final EIS on Aug. 31, 2022 and identified Gondola Alternative B as the preferred alternative to improve transportation in the canyon. Gondola B best meets the project purpose and need and provides the highest travel reliability for the public. A 45-day public review and comment period was open Sept. 2 to Oct. 17, 2022.

Recognizing that safety, mobility and reliability are issues on S.R. 210 today, and that it may take years to secure federal, state and/or private funding for full implementation of Gondola B, UDOT proposed a phased implementation plan starting with components of the Enhanced Bus Service.

The proposed phasing would include increased and improved bus service as described in the Enhanced Bus Service Alternative (with no canyon roadway widening), tolling or restrictions on single occupancy vehicles, and the construction of mobility hubs. UDOT would also proceed with widening and other improvements to Wasatch Boulevard, constructing snow sheds, and implementing trailhead and roadside parking improvements, as funding allows.

These improvements will improve air quality, protect the watershed, and increase the quality of life for residents and canyon users by reducing traffic congestion as private vehicles shift to transit.
