Emigration Canyon is a popular spot of recreation for bicyclists, canyon residents and motorists, with instances of conflict between the three groups on the rise.

To improve safety and harmony, the Salt Lake County Council unanimously approved a joint resolution with the mayor's office to "spearhead a motorist/cyclist study group to review and produce recommendations for canyon improvements similar to successful efforts undertaken in communities such as Boulder, Colo."

On Thursday at 12:15 p.m., Bike Utah Executive Director Phil Sarnoff, Emigration Canyon Community Council chairman Rick Raile, and Township Services Director Patrick Leary join Brennan Smith to talk about the joint resolution and where the plan for Emigration Canyon goes from here.
