LEHI, Utah — The Utah Department of Transportation has been conducting an environmental study into the potential of a Timpanogos Highway extension. On Wednesday, UDOT will host its second open meeting

The first open meeting happened on Tuesday evening. For those who missed it, the project’s website said that “the same information will be provided at both meetings.”

The two meetings were intended to explain the goals of the project. Additionally, they present an opportunity for the public to make comments. 

Wyatt Woolley, UDOT’s Region Three communication manager, said they want to hear everyone’s suggestions.

The Timpanogos Highway extension website said the formal comment period will last until January 5, 2024. Those interested in submitting comments following the meeting can visit UDOT’s website to learn how to do so. 

Thursday’s meeting will be held at North Point Elementary in Lehi. It will take place from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. For those unable to attend in person, UDOT has posted a recording of Wedneday’s meeting online

UDOT’s website said that both meetings will present the same information.

According to UDOT, the study has been in progress over the last year. The purpose of the extension would be to ease traffic on the west side of I-15. 

The presentation provided on UDOT’s extension website said that the study has considered several factors when weighing the benefits. Factors studied included noise, economics, and impacts upon wetlands, among others. 

UDOT has reminded the public that no official plans have been made. The study was meant to discover the possibilities.
