DRAPER — UTA will launch service on its new $212 million Draper TRAX extension beginning Aug. 18.
The 3.8-mile line will expand service into Draper, providing three new light rail stations to South Valley commuters on the Blue Line that now terminates at the Sandy Civic Center.
The new stops will be Crescent View at 361 E. 11400 South, Kimballs Lane at 11796 S. 700 East, and the Draper Town Center located at 1131 E. Pioneer Road (12400 South).
The Draper extension of the Blue Line is expected to carry 2,200 passengers a day.
This extension is the last of UTA's Frontlines 2015 projects that added 70 miles of rail in five years rather than seven: FrontRunner South, the Mid-Jordan Line, the West Valley and Airport lines, and now the Draper Line.
UTA spent $2.51 billion of the $2.85 billion budget on Frontlines, coming in 12 percent under budget.
The extension officially opens Sunday, Aug. 18. On Aug. 17, UTA will hold a "food is your fare" day. People can ride the new extension and anywhere in the system if they donate a nonperishable food item at one of the three new stations in Draper.
