The project “would connect the Murray Central TRAX and FrontRunner Station to the Salt Lake Community College Redwood campus in Taylorsville and to the West Valley Central TRAX Station,” according to the project’s website.

The project includes improving bicycle conditions along the project, including building a multi-use path along 4700 South to replace the existing bike/ped facility. It also promises improved bike connections to stations and between existing paths as well as other improvements such as median islands and push-button activation of traffic lights.
