The Utah Department of Transportation and the cities of North Logan and Hyde Park have re-started work on an Environmental Impact Statement for 200 East from 1400 North in North Logan to 3700 North in Hyde Park. The 200 East EIS effort will pick up where a previous study left off, which was a hold place on the study in 2009 due to funding constraints and a lack of consensus on the project alignment. UDOT Project Manager Marjorie Rasmussen says UDOT held a series of open houses in 2004 and a public hearing in 2007 regarding the project. The study is intended to provide a north-south alternative to Main Street (U.S. Highway 91). Rasmussen says during the study UDOT will consider land use, traffic forecasts, historical and recreational properties and local priorities in determining the best solution for 200 East. The study team will give attention to adjacent property owners, potential business re-locations, noise issues, wetlands impacts and historic properties all of which apply to the 200 East study.
