Project Overview



Bus Rapid Transit or BRT combines the capacity and speed of light rail with the lower cost construction of an integrated bus system. Once complete, Ogden Express (formerly route 603) will provide riders a clean-air ride in an electric bus from the Ogden FrontRunner Station, through downtown, along dedicated bus lanes in the center of the road on Harrison Boulevard and through the Weber State University campus, and to McKay-Dee Hospital. When operational, riders will be able to catch the bus every 10-15 minutes on weekdays and 15-30 minutes on weekends. The project will benefit the community by reducing vehicle trips, supporting the economy and providing transportation choices.

Construction

Utah Transit Authority, Jacobs Engineering, AECOM, WCEC, and Stacy and Witbeck have partnered to design and construct the Ogden Express (OGX) line over the next three years. Project segments will be constructed simultaneously in multiple locations to ensure project completion in a timely manner.

Updates this week:

Washington Blvd.

  • OGX station canopies on Washington Blvd. have been installed between 24th and 25th streets.

23rd Street

  • Beginning Sunday, September 18th and continuing for approximately one month, 23rd Street from Wall Ave. to Lincoln Ave. will be closed to all traffic for roadway excavation and paving work. Alternate business parking is available on Lincoln Ave.
  • Sewer line installation continues between Lincoln and Grant avenues.
  • 23rd Street is closed to all traffic and on-street parking between Wall Ave. and Grant Ave. for reconstruction through fall 2022. North/south thru-traffic remains open on Grant Ave. Existing sidewalk remains open during construction.

  • OGX station platform and utility work continue at the 28th Street intersection (Ogden High School). Watch for lane shifts and possible east side closures of the 28th Street intersection.
  • Road widening is underway between 31st and 37th streets to facilitate the addition of dedicated bus lanes in the center and new OGX stations at 32ndand 36th streets. Two lanes are maintained in each direction during daytime hours. Drivers are advised to reduce speeds and watch for lane shifts. Left-turns are restricted in the work zone.

Environmental Assessment

An Environmental Assessment (EA) was completed for the project in 2019. The purpose of the EA was to identify the environmental effects associated with project construction and operation and to provide agencies and the public an opportunity to review and comment on the effects of the proposed project. The EA evaluated impacts to socioeconomic, environmental, and transportation conditions in the project area and what further actions or mitigation could be implemented to address the identified impacts.
