(KCPW News) Residents and business owners in the area surrounding Salt Lake City’s North Temple street continue to endure heavy construction as the thoroughfare is upgraded, not only to accommodate a new TRAX line to the airport, but bike lanes and pedestrian improvements. Now, a University of Utah study will look at just how much these long-awaited upgrades make the neighborhood healthier. U of U Environmental Psychologist Barbara Brown is the principal investigator for the Moving Across Places Study, or MAPS. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked her about the first phase of the study, for which the university is recruiting through the fall.
