ACTION LINE: Hill traffic affects UTA bus schedule

September 10, 2015

Q: I use mass transit to and from the base. Due to the extra traffic, because of the closure of the Southwest Gate and the poor design of the traffic lights at the interstate intersection just off base, I am now missing the train 50 percent of the time. Utah Transit Authority has already adjusted their schedule, but it’s not enough.

ACTION LINE: Safety first for Hill’s ground maintenance personnel

September 3, 2015

Q: In the last two weeks I have witnessed three near-accidents on Wardleigh Road. These incidents involved a grounds maintenance person driving a riding mower on Wardleigh Road in the hours of darkness with no headlights, brake lights or any lighting at all on one of the mowers. None of the drivers had on any PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) on either, such as helmets. In one of the incidents the individual was driving at about 20 mph in a 40 mph zone during one of the busiest traffic times.

ACTION LINE: South Gate Visitor Center fixes schedule to meet customer needs

August 27, 2015

Q: Can anything be done about the sporadic arrival of the personnel opening the visitor control building at the South Gate?  In recent weeks, I’ve encountered on at least two occasions the visitor control center being opened late. There are contractors being delayed from starting their work and, in my case, a potential new hire was late for his appointment.

ACTION LINE: Access to Gate 31 pedestrian gate

August 13, 2015

Q: Can you find out why I’m no longer able to use Gate 31 to access my office? I work for the 309th Commodities Maintenance Group in Building 510 and I have line badge for this area. For the past three years, I’ve used this gate; however, recently the organization that controls gate access deleted everyone from their system. When I contacted them to ask why I no longer had gate access, it was explained that there were more than 1,000 individuals in their system and no way for them to know who still had a legitimate requirement to use the gate.
