Centerville also wants to keep a proposed 1250 West overpass that would connect the two sides of Centerville's west business park. UDOT says it can't afford both. State officials would be willing to incur the cost of the Legacy Parkway overpass if the city could eliminate the proposed 1250 West overpass.
City officials, however, are opposed to the state's plan and have decided to wait to meet with UDOT until the state responds to a letter sent by the Centerville City council.
In the letter, city officials have communicated their preferences to having both Parrish Lane at grade and keeping the proposed 1250 West overpass.
"We think they can meet a long-term regional transportation need by keeping Parrish at grade," Centerville City Manager Steve Thacker said. "It would preserve a regional connector road for future development."
