State division allows competing bids for use of Utah Lake land

PROVO (Deseret News) — Utah Crossing Inc. may not be alone in applying for use of land it wants to utilize to build a bridge across Utah Lake.

The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands recently sent a letter to adjoining landowners of the corridor of land that crosses Utah Lake from Vineyard to north of Pelican Point, asking for competing bids.

"Interest has been generated for that piece of land, and the division … is opening that corridor of land for development proposals that align with the policies, goals and objectives of the Utah Lake Master Plan and the Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands policy and rules," the letter states.

Forestry, Fire and State Lands official Dave Grierson said he is not aware of any other individuals or groups interested in building a lake crossing, but potential applicants do not have to use the whole corridor of land to apply.

All applications, including Utah Crossing's proposal, are due by noon March 31. They can be e-mailed to
