Little Cottonwood Pilot Intersections User Feedback Survey
Together, the Central Wasatch Commission and the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) are tackling traffic congestion in the Cottonwood Canyons. The revised Little Cottonwood Canyon Environmental Impact Statement (LCC EIS) will address the feasibility for avalanche sheds, lane improvements, trailhead parking, and improvements to Wasatch Boulevard. The Cottonwood Canyons Transportation Action Plan will address the feasibility for tolling, traffic congestion, transit options, and pedestrian and bike facilities.
As part of the revised LCC EIS, temporary “High-T” intersections have been installed at Alta Wildcat Base parking area and Snowbird Entry 4. These intersections are designed to improve traffic flow by allowing drivers turning out of these parking areas to merge with down-canyon traffic in a dedicated lane. This moves the merge point farther away from the exits and improves the flow of down-canyon traffic.
UDOT is monitoring traffic data to evaluate the functioning level of the intersections, and we are asking you to tell us about your experience using them. Please share your observations with us by giving feedback below.[/vc_column_text]
