New trackage was being constructed at the time of
this 2007 photo taken along 400 West, south of the Arena station. To
the left restaurants and other businesses line the street, with much
more Gateway District development just further west. Two
intermediate stations serve the new extension.
Commuter rail came to the Salt Lake Valley in 2008. FrontRunner service to and from
Ogden is the first route to
begin operation, with later service to be provided to and from
Provo. This new light rail extension ends at the joint commuter rail, Amtrak and
Greyhound bus station.
