Uinta Basin Railway

Bringing Rail To The Uinta Basin

The concept of a rail from the Uinta Basin has been studied numerous times in recent decades (URS Engineers in 1981, Uintah Engineering and Land Surveying in 1995, DMJM Harris in 2001, and UDOT in 2015).

The extension of a heavy-duty freight railroad would link the resource-rich Uinta and White River Basins with the national railway system.
