In the states master plan the widening of 5400 South (the main street in Kearns) has always been on the table. Now, the reality is here. I contacted the Department of Transportation for the State of Utah and ask them to attend the Kearns Town Council meeting in December. The Director of Region 2 and his staff came to answer questions and to explain a time line for construction. This project will affect businesses and homeowners between 4000 west and 4800 west, on 5400 south. UDOT will start an environmental study the first of next year. This study is projected to take 3 to 6 months after that, the decision will be made on how to widen the road and which properties will be involved. UDOT has promised to keep the community fully informed on each phase of the operation. Myself and the Town Council will be involved every step of the way, to make sure our citizens are treated fairly. This will be a life change for many people and decisions will have to be made, I will do my best to serve you in this time of change.
