Feasibility Study Funded to Connect Helper and Price Cities


Helper City Mayor Lenise Peterman recently made the announcement that the Utah Transportation Committee awarded $250,000 to the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) to perform a feasibility study that will connect Helper and Price cities via a biking and hiking path.

Back in 2018, Helper City had made a request for assistance in connecting to the cities. Mayor Peterman explained that this request has been steadily tracked by UDOT as a potential project and the feasibility study is an assessment of the practicality of the possible project or system.

“A feasibility study aims to objectively and rationally uncover the strengths and weaknesses to determine how best to connect our cities, opportunities and threats present in the natural environment, the resources required to carry through and ultimately, the prospects for success,” stated Mayor Peterman. “This study will inform the best path forward to implementation.”

Mayor Peterman also stated that they are thrilled to see movement on this possible connection before thanking UDOT and the commission for this award.
