Transportation: Media Round Up
As a long line of cars snaked up Little Cottonwood Canyon Friday morning, Mountain Accord leaders held a news conference at the LCC park and ride to talk about a push for short-term solutions to address Cottonwood Canyon traffic issues.
“This problem isn’t going to fix itself,” said Mountain Accord Program Director Laynee Jones. “Mountain Accord is working toward practical solutions that we can immediately implement to reduce impact when we travel into our canyons. The time to act is now.”
Mountain Accord is exploring a wide range of short-term solutions for reducing year-round canyons traffic including pushing for increased bus service year-round, encouraging public transportation use and discouraging single passenger, private car use.
Mountain Accord is also asking valley residents on both sides of the Wasatch Front and Back to take a short survey on transpiration issues and share their opinion. Take the survey here.
