Congress has approved spending $5 million during fiscal 1989 on the proposed light-rail commuter train system to serve Salt Lake County.
The latest appropriation will be used by the Utah Transit Authority and the Wasatch Front Regional Council to purchase a right of way owned by the Union Pacific Railroad that parallels I-15.The proposed light-rail system would run from the Draper-Sandy area into downtown Salt Lake City to ease commuter traffic.
Last year, Congress appropriated $3.6 million for preliminary engineering studies on the mass-transit system.
