This Uintah Basin needs a dependable Transportation way other than Trucking. we have always had to depend on the Roads out of this valley no matter what the weather is and at times in the winter the roads can get very bad, also the truck traffic to Salt Lake or to Price with one of the Basins largest export products Crude Oil is upward of 100 trucks a day, with night a day routs. I am for the Railway for the safety factor on the roads. And to give the Uintah Basin more industrial competitive, Without the Oil and Gas Industry, The Uintah Basins only other industry is, Farming and Ranching which there is not a lot of good paying Jobs for young people we and the public needs more opportunity for Job and the Railway may give us the help we need.
