By Charles Pekow — Revisions to Kimball Junction in Summit County, Utah may include a new bike bridge and other improvements. The Federal Highway Administration and Utah Department of Transportation are considering improvements to the area, which includes the I-80 and SR-224 interchange and SR-224 through the two at-grade intersections to the south of I-80 (Ute Boulevard and Olympic Parkway).

Officials still have to decide exactly what form the revisions will take, if any, but the options include reducing traffic along bike lanes. Currently, multi-use trails parallel 224 and the Summit Bike Share system serves the area. The trails lead to more than 500 miles of paved and mountain bike trails.

Alternatives under consideration involve adding a bridge over 224 or adding a pedestrian tunnel at Ute.
