Title 038-DPAI-AIA-Page 28
Description TRANSPORTATION (For complete analysis and data, refer to Summary of Analysis to April 1, 1962 - Technical Advisory Committee on Transportation.) How People Get to Downtown Automobile The automobile is presently the heaviest carrier and primary means of access to Downtown Salt Lake City. Consultation with traffic experts indicates that this will continue to be the pattern for Salt Lake City in the future, along with increased use of air facilities. This points up the importance of the new freeway system presently being constructed west of Downtown, which will drain all regional population areas north of the city limits and south of the 24th South freeway Leg, Potentially 100,000 more vehicles per day will be delivered to the Downtown area via the 5th North, 6th South, and 13th South approaches when the freeway is completed There is a need for improving the access pattern for those population areas to the northeast, southeast, and southwest who are too close in to use the new freeways . Public Carriers Due to the north-south directional growth of population along the Wasatch Front, Salt Lake City should continue to be a logical point for stopping or transferring to regional north-south transportation. Airlines Salt Lake City Municipal Airport presently serves six airlines. Their 980,000 passengers in I960 represents an average increase of 16% each year. Further increases will emphasize the need for a direct helicopter link with Downtown in addition to taxi and limousine. Railroads Denver & Rio Grande, Western Pacific, and Union Pacific together carried roughly the same number of passengers in I960 as did the airlines, although the use has been fairly constant during the last 10 years . The two terminals are both close to Downtown. -28-
