An Introduction to the Shared Solution
The Shared Solution is a smarter way to move traffic. It creates ways to maximize and enhance existing roads and mass transit, and moves the same amount of traffic as the proposed new West Davis Corridor (WDC) freeway–possibly even more. The Shared Solution is NOT a no-build alternative. Instead, the Shared Solution proposes smart alternatives like redesigning intersections to increase traffic flow, or improving east-west arterial roads to become efficient boulevards. These smarter ideas will impact fewer homes, enhance economic vitality of our communities, keep our precious environmental resources intact, and help reduce CO2 emissions. The Shared Solution helps preserve our quality of life, not destroy it like WDC freeway.
WHAT DOES THE SHARED SOLUTION LOOK LIKE?
The youtube video clip above shows how the Shared Solution would look and operate if implemented on Antelope Drive in Layton, Utah, or Syracuse, Utah. It is easy to see that the Shared Solution is better, and more community friendly than WDC freeway.
HOW CAN YOU BECOME INVOLVED WITH IMPLEMENTING THE SHARED SOLUTION?
We need to raise funds to hire experts to develop and evaluate the Shared Solution alternative, and to provide critical analysis of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the WDC freeway.
