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 platform work will resume with canopy installation in summer 2022.

25th Street

  • Not related to the OGX project, Ogden City is replacing a waterline on Adams Ave. between 25th and 26th streets. More information is available by calling the City's project hotline: (800) 292-3557 or emailing marty.asay@wcg.us.
  • Roadway excavation, subgrade placement, prep for curb/gutter installation and utility work (lighting) are planned next week between Washington and Adams. Utility work (lighting, telecom) continues between Adams and Jefferson. Pedestrian access to The Monarch is maintained from the north side of 25th Street via Washington Blvd. and Adams Ave.
  • Adams Ave. is closed to thru-traffic between 24th and 26th streets to facilitate utility installations. Pedestrian access and on-street parking on Adams are maintained. The UTA bus stop on the 603 route at 25th & Adams is closed and riders may board the bus at 26th & Ogden Ave.

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.
