r The Utah Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration, has announced that it has selected four alternatives for more detailed study as part of the I-15 Payson Main Street Interchange Environmental Impact Statement.

“These four alternatives were selected after working closely with city officials and community members,” said UDOT Project Manager Justin Schellenberg. “The next step is to determine which alternative will best meet the community’s needs now and in the future. Our goal is to improve traffic flow and enhance safety in this area.”

In December of 2015, UDOT, FHWA and the study team originally proposed a list of 17 potential alternatives. They narrowed the list to a reasonable range of alternatives based on the results of preliminary environmental screening process as well as input received from the public, agencies and Payson City. Four alternatives are being carried forward for consideration: C1 Braided Ramps, C3 Frontage Road Ramps, C4 Split Diamond, and I1 Long Span Structure. Details regarding each of these alternatives can be found at www.udot.utah.gov/paysoneis.

The study team will now analyze the environmental, social and economic effects of these alternatives. The findings of this analysis will be presented in the Draft EIS, which will be available for public review this fall. A public hearing will be held at that time to gather public comment.

The public is welcomed and encouraged to provide input throughout the EIS process. To see details regarding each alternative, provide feedback or stay up-to-date on the project, visit www.udot.utah.gov/paysoneis, send an email to  paysoneis@utah.gov or call 801-859-3770.
