LDS Church Conference And Football Highlight Weekend

The LDS (Mormon) Church will hold is fall conference in Salt Lake City this weekend, and that always brings a crowd to the downtown area. Conference meetings will be held in the Conference Center, adjacent to Temple Square. Meetings last 2 hours and begin at 10 am, 2 pm and 6 pm on Saturday, and at 10 am and 2 pm on Sunday.

Traffic will be heavy before and after meetings.

In addition, the University of Utah hosts Washington in a big football game Saturday. Kickoff will be at 5 pm in Rice-Eccles Stadium, on the U Campus on the eastern edge of town.

Construction on I-15 and in many other areas is an ongoing annoyance and will definitely slow traffic this weekend. In addition, it will be impossible to find parking spots in downtown Salt Lake and around the U Campus.

Trax and Utah Transit Authority buses provide a convenient and reliable way to get downtown and up to the University. Extra buses are scheduled to run throughout the weekend to help alleviate some of the traffic congestion. See the UTA website for information on schedules and routes.

On a side note, The Republic newspaper in Columbus, Indiana, has this short article about the traffic congestion expected in Salt Lake this weekend. I'm not sure why, but it come up when I did an Internet search for Utah-related news items.
