Transportation and Infrastructure

Neil Hansen understands the enormous effect of growth on our transportation systems and believes in addressing Ogden’s infrastructure needs through careful planning and development. It is important to seek a balanced, efficient transportation system that does the following: maximizes the use of taxpayer dollars; enhances public safety; takes into account the impact of transportation system on neighborhoods, open spaces, and wildlife; allows us to achieve high air quality standards; promotes biking and pedestrian friendly access; and meets critical highway demand while also building convenient, accessible public transportation.

Neil pledges to bring more state and federal money to Ogden City for expansion and better maintenance of our roads and utilities as he has done in his past legislative experience, as seen by the following projects he was instrumental in accomplishing.

  • Ensured 12th Street from I-15 to Harrison Blvd. was widened (4 miles of concrete completed in 2010)
  • Ensured 30th and 31st Street was totally reconstructed from Harrison Blvd. to Midland Drive in Roy.
  • Ensured I-15 reconstruction from Riverdale Rd. to 2700 North in North Ogden and Wall Avenue from 36th street to 12th street was completed.
  • Ensured the Ogden Canyon State Highway, Road 39 was named to be the Gunn McKay Highway, which runs from Harrison Blvd. to the David O. McKay and Gunn McKay homes in Huntsville.

    Neil collaborated in the bi-partisan effort to bring to pass these joint transportation projects while serving on the House of Representatives Transportation Appropriations Committee.

Neil supports the extension of mass transit systems, including the Frontrunner, other commuter rail, and bus rapid transit to connect with systems in other counties along the Wasatch Front. He strongly encourages the use of fuel-efficient, low polluting vehicles and alternative fuels whenever possible. With the idea of connecting Legacy Highway at 3500 West, Neil would like to get your input and opinion about how this issue might impact your lifestyle.
