Letter: UDOT should created pedestrian access to Farmington Station
First Published Feb 14 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Feb 14 2014 01:01 am

We have bad air quality along the Wasatch Front during inversions. The answer is not simple. Everyone needs to help: not burning wood on bad air days, keeping your vehicles well-tuned, car pooling, and using mass transportation when it is possible.

The Farmington FrontRunner Station and Station Park do not have bicycle or pedestrian access from the area north of Park Lane and east of I-15. This was really a bad design by UDOT.

One solution would be to build an overpass over I-15 between the north end of the Legacy Parkway Trail and the Oakridge Preserve Trail in Farmington. This would allow people who live in high-density housing good pedestrian and bicycle access to the FrontRunner station. If people have access to mass transit, they would be more likely to make a choice to use mass transit on bad air days and perhaps help the air quality along the Wasatch Front.

There has been no action out of the governor’s office about our air quality, just talk. The Honorable Gov. Gary Herbert should make this a priority for UDOT.
