  1. share the salt Weber county has had it all for long enough. to lessen the damage to the Causeway is what is important and union pacific owns the bridge. No studies, Weber County has put off building the Legacy Highway for 30 years with their studies.Weber County does not even acknowledge the causeway is there. They have blocked off people viewing the lake from Ogden. The Weber County Government does not respect the railroad or its historical the causeway if you need to.
