AIA Utah also teamed up with The Salt Lake Tribune for the “People’s Choice Award.” The public could vote for its favorite building on the newspaper’s website. The winner was the Tie Fork Rest Area in Spanish Fork Canyon, which garnered 459 votes. It was designed by the Archiplex Group of Salt Lake and built by Cameron Construction. It incorporates elements of railroad architecture from the early 20th century. Some historical information about the railroad is offered inside in the rest area, as well.
The Ribbon Cutting for the Tie Fork Rest Area was on August 16, 2010 on Highway 6 in Spanish Fork Canyon. This is a great looking and unique facility! KSL Television had a feature story on this new rest stop. Click Here for the news story or below you can watch the news report of the opening ceremony.
