MILLCREEK — The public is invited to participate in Salt Lake County’s Mill Creek Canyon Transportation Study group’s open house. The open house is designed to display potential solutions to canyon traffic and generate public input.

Residents are encouraged to attend the open house and participate in the study by providing feedback about transportation issues and study findings.

“Our community loves Mill Creek Canyon, so much that its narrow road can barely support the volume,” said Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon. “As we look at transportation solutions, it is important we generate feedback from the public so we can best accommodate canyon visitors while respecting its natural environment.”

The study focuses on unique issues surrounding Mill Creek Canyon including overflow parking, traffic congestion, cyclist and pedestrian safety and more. The study will also offer solutions for managing or reducing vehicle travel in the canyon and enhancing connectivity to the public transportation system.

The open house will take place Monday, April 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. at REI, Wasatch Room, 3285 E. 3300 South.
