Two informal public meetings to discuss improvements on U.S. 89 through Davis County are scheduled as part of the county and Utah Department of Transportation's ongoing study of the highway.

The meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m. September 28 in the South Weber City Office and 6:30 p.m. September 29 in the Kaysville Municipal Building.The $90,000 study, being funded by UDOT and the Davis Council of Governments, is looking at traffic use and patterns, accident rates, speed, and other factors.

It will make short- and long-term recommendations on handling the growing traffic volume on the highway between Burke Lane in Farmington and the mouth of Weber Canyon.

Some alternatives already under discussion are traffic signals, interchanges, traffic channelization, frontage roads and pedestrian crossings.
