Bike Path Safety Barrier

Dear Neighbors,

As some of you know the long awaited and much anticipated bike path is being constructed along Kilby Road. Not sure about the rest of you, but we are very excited. However, I’ve spoken with a few people about the fact that there is only a small wire fence separating the path from the freeway. September 19th at 7:50 pm there was a two car accident at the top of the summit. One of the cars rolled down the embankment and across the bike path. At that time of day on a Monday morning the path, once it is complete, could be heavily populated with school kids on their way to Weilenmann or Jeremy Ranch.

I have contacted the Highway Patrol and have the case number of this event. I am aware of three accidents in the past year that have brought vehicles off the freeway and down the embankment and across where the bike path is now being constructed. I am going to write a letter to UDOT, Summit County, and Snyderville Basin requesting that the path not be considered complete or released for use until proper barricades are in place to protect ourselves, our families, and anyone else utilizing the path. Please email if you are interested in having your name placed on the letter as well.
