Petition Started To Put Fencing Along Highway Where Das Energi Attendee Died

The petition backed by UDOT is ahead and to the purpose about why it’s essential to have fencing put in on this stretch freeway:

The objective this letter is to request that protecting fencing be put in on the UT-202 overpass bridging I-80 in Magna, Utah. Approximately 200 ft on the west aspect and east aspect this stretch street needs to be fenced.

This previous August, a person died after falling from the UT-202 overpass and being struck by a number of automobiles on I-80. This tragedy would have been prevented if there had been a fence in place. We can and will forestall different, comparable tragedies sooner or later.
