PROJECT STATUS: Under Construction
CATEGORY: Public Infrastructure
After nearly a decade of planning, on Monday, October 22 Utah Transit Agency (UTA) officials officially broke ground on the Depot District Clean Fuels Technology Center. The new center will be directly west of the Intermodal Hub and will be home to over 150 new clean air fuel and electric buses by 2021.
The Technology Center will replace the agency’s current garage at the northwest corner of the 200 South and 600 West intersection. The new center will occupy a 100-year-old former rail facility that sits just south of UTA administrative building.
The new center not only helps the transit agency increase its fleet of alternative fuel and electric vehicles but by transferring the maintenance operations and fleet storage to the new center, over 7 acres of desirable real estate will be available for development when the current 45-year-old garage closes.
UTA officials envision a large transit-oriented development at the site of the current garage. The garage parcels are not only in the heart of the state’s most transit-rich neighborhood but a neighborhood that is experiencing an influx of new development.
