FARMINGTON — Hundreds of people packed a meeting to weigh in on the proposed West Davis Corridor, a 20-mile extension of the Legacy Parkway.
Blasting AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell,” about a hundred people stood outside the Legacy Events Center waving signs condemning the road. They were joined by environmental groups who have united to stop the West Davis Corridor, an extension of the Legacy Parkway that will stretch from Farmington to Hooper.
“Were questioning should this go at all? Is there a need for this freeway?” said Lori Kalt, the president of the citizen’s group “Save Farmington.”
Inside the fairgrounds, hundreds of residents weighed in on the Utah Department of Transportation’s proposed starting point for the road — Glovers Lane or Shepard Lane.
“I don’t want Farmington to be surrounded by a freeway,” said Nate Cook, who favors the Shepard Lane option.
