To provide a balanced, integrated transportation system for residents, visitors, and commuters in Little Cottonwood Canyon and surrounding areas, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is conducting an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on Little Cottonwood Canyon Road (S.R. 210) and the S.R. 210 Bypass Road. The EIS will evaluate potential improvements that reduce peak congestion and improve recreation and tourism experiences in Little Cottonwood Canyon. These improvements include managing the number of vehicles on the road system, improving vehicle mobility, and improving roadway safety and reliability for all users, while reflecting the character and scale of Little Cottonwood Canyon. The EIS will also include a public involvement process so UDOT can proactively work with all stakeholders in a transparent and inclusive process.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carriedout by UDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated January 17, 2017, and executed by FHWA and UDOT
