OGDEN - THE 12TH STREET CORRIDOR

IN AUGUST 1969 THE CITY OF OGDEN (UTAH) COMMITTED ITSELF TO CONSTRUCTION OF A HIGHWAY CORRIDOR TO RUN EITHER IN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY OF THE EXISTING 12TH STREET OR IN THE 750-FOOT BLOCK BETWEEN 12TH AND 13TH STREETS. THERE ARE SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES ALONG BOTH STREETS, BUT NO STRUCTURES ON MOST OF THE CROSS STREETS. BETWEEN APRIL AND SEPTEMBER 1970 AN INTERDISCIPLINARY TASK FORCE CONDUCTED WEEKLY MEETINGS TO DETERMINE WHICH OF FOUR ALTERNATE ROUTE LOCATIONS WAS MOST BENEFICIAL AND LEAST HARMFUL TO THE COMMUNITY. FIVE SUBGROUPS WERE FORMED TO ASCERTAIN THE BEST ROUTE FROM THE STAND- POINT OF THEIR ASSIGNMENT: CONSTRUCTION AND RIGHT-OF- WAY COSTS, TRAFFIC FLOW AND SAFETY, SOCIOLOGICAL IMPACT, ECONOMIC IMPACT, AND AESTHETICS. THE METHODS, FINDINGS, AND CONCLUSIONS OF EACH SUBGROUP ARE PRESENTED IN A SEPARATE CHAPTER. A RECOMMENDED LOCATION IS PROPOSED, ALONG WITH THE INSTITUTIONAL ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN TO IMPLEMENT IT.
