KBYU show on transportation in Utah Valley.

Did anyone see the show on transportation issue in Utah Valley on KBYU last night. Lots of great information on what UDOT and UTA are looking at to handle the fast growth in Utah Valley.

Mentioned that 8,000 homes are expected to be built in Lehi in the next 5 years. Basically doubling the size of Lehi. Don't know if this includes Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain, but probably does.

Population in Utah Valley is expected to grow to 900,000 by 2030.

The new KBYU Documentary “Who Goes There?” examines transportation issues facing Utah County in the coming decades. A fast growing population threatens to overwhelm existing transportation infrastructure. The impact spreads beyond the county as the impediments to commerce and convenience compound with clogged highways. The documentary examines various proposals to improve transportation in the county. Voters in Utah and Salt Lake Counties will be asked to hike taxes in order to fund improvements.

Watch “Who Goes There” Monday October 30 at 9:30pm and again Monday November 6 at 9:30 pm.
