College Connector Trail Event Report

On Saturday, April 13, UTA hosted an event to celebrate the reopening and improvements of the College Connector trail.

UTA was well-prepared with swag, donuts (covered in green and blue frosting for UVU and BYU, of course!), and gift cards for those who biked the farthest to get to the event, took transit the farthest, etc. BYU’s Cosmo the Cougar and UVU’s Willie the Wolverine also showed up!

Jim Price of Mountainlands Association of Governments and Aaron Skabelund of BikeWalk Provo gave short speeches about the history of the trail and its new improvements. The trail was completed in partnership with UDOT, Provo, Orem, and MAG in the early 2000’s. It now gets about 10,000 riders per month using it, many for commuting purposes. And thanks to UTA’s UVX project, the trail will be even more pleasant for those riders to use. The College Connector trail has been resurfaced in many areas and has improved lighting. If you haven’t ridden it yet, get out there!
