Little Cottonwood Canyon EIS Scoping Period Now Open
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) recently revised the study approach of the Little Cottonwood Canyon Environmental Impact Statement (LCC EIS) to focus on the immediate needs of avalanche mitigation, trailhead parking, and Wasatch Boulevard.
Together, the CWC and UDOT will examine solutions for additional needs in both Little and Big Cottonwood Canyons through the Cottonwood Canyons Transportation Action Plan (TAP), which will happen concurrently with the LCC EIS. Click this link for more information on the LCC EIS project website.
UDOT and the CWC invite you to participate in this process. The comment period for the EIS is now open, and runs through May 3rd. You can leave feedback on the EIS by clicking the button below, or by sending a letter to: LCC EIS Project Team, C/O HDR, 2825 E. Cottonwood Parkway, Suite 200, Salt Lake City, UT 84121-7077.
We also invite you to mark your calendars for a public open house, happening Tuesday, April 9th, 4 — 8 p.m. at Cottonwood Heights City Hall (2277 Bengal Blvd, Cottonwood Heights, UT 84121). At the open house, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the Cottonwood Canyons TAP, including past efforts that inform the process, and the role of UDOT and CWC with the Cottonwoods TAP. You’ll also be able to leave comments for the study team. Join us!
