SALT LAKE CITY – Mayor Ralph Becker will sign an agreement tomorrow between Salt Lake City and the Utah Transit Authority that initiates the design and construction of the Airport TRAX Extension between downtown and the Salt Lake City International Airport. The signing will take place at 11:00 at the Salt Lake Central Station Plaza, 600 West 250 South.
The interlocal agreement calls for UTA to build the TRAX extension in exchange for Salt Lake City granting to UTA the use of City streets and property. The agreement also calls for the City to pay UTA up to $35 million for the project.
Mayor Becker and representatives from Salt Lake City and UTA will be available to answer questions.
