Refined Alternatives - Oct. 2012
Based on stakeholder feedback and more detailed wetland surveys done in spring 2012, some alignment refinements were made to further minimize impacts.
No final decisions have been made. The refined alternatives are another step in the process and alignments can still change. A final alternative will not be selected until the end of the study in 2014.

Refined Alternatives - Sept. 2011
Following the February 2011 public open houses and comment period, the West Davis Corridor Study Team evaluated the feedback provided by residents, farmers, cities, counties, state and federal resource agencies and other interested groups.
The feedback received was helpful in improving the alternatives with the goal of finding a transportation solution that will benefit the western Davis and Weber counties.

Level 2 Screening - Feb. 2011
Level 2 Screening evaluated which of the 14 remaining alternatives best met the transportation needs while minimizing community and environmental impacts. Impacts to several community and environmental resources were evaluated and compared, including:
• Agricultural Protection Areas • Air Quality • Archaeological Sites • Businesses
• Community & Historic Resources • Homes • Parks • Trails • Wetlands
• Wildlife Habitat
Based on this evaluation, three alternatives were advanced for further consideration and detailed study. These are shown on the following maps. Click here to see additional February 2011 open house materials.
Level 1 Screening - Nov. 2010
The 46 preliminary alternatives were evaluated for their potential to reduce delay and congestion. Based on these criteria, 32 alternatives were eliminated (or screened), including:
• All 2-lane arterial roadways
• All 5-lane arterial roadways south of 4000 South in Weber County
• The alternatives that followed the D&RGW railroad north of Farmington
• The "transit-ONLY" alternative that included public transit improvements without any roadway improvements
The remaining 14 alternatives (shown in the map below) were advanced to Level 2 Screening. These included new corridors (shown in green) that are proposed 4-lane divided highway alternatives from Farmington to 4000 South, then transition to 5-lane arterial roadways. The orange lines represent a single alternative that would widen I-15 and various existing roads. Trails and public transit options will be evaluated during the detailed impact analysis of the alternatives that advance through the screening process.
Preliminary Alternatives Development - Aug. 2010
The map below shows the initial range of potential alternatives that were developed based on public input and presented to the public in August 2010. They included new transit services, new roads and the widening of existing roads. These alternatives showed general concepts. Click here to see additional August 2010 open house materials.
The following PDFs represent all of the maps we have previously displayed at public meetings and on our website.
We are studying transportation needs in western Davis and Weber counties from the Great Salt Lake on the west to I-15 on the east, and from Parrish Lane in Centerville on the south to 12th Street in Marriott-Slaterville on the north.
