The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) began an Environmental Impact Statement in the spring of 2018 for Little Cottonwood Canyon and Wasatch Boulevard in partnership with Utah Transit Authority and the USDA Forest Service to provide an integrated transportation system that improves the reliability, mobility, and safety for residents, visitors, and commuters who use S.R. 210.

Ultimately, the partners seek to deliver transportation options that meet the needs of the community while preserving the value of the Central Wasatch Mountains.

The Draft Purpose and Need & Alternative Screening Criteria Public Comment Period closed on December 13, 2019.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carriedout by UDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated January 17, 2017, and executed by FHWA and UDOT
