Hill AFB Getting To and Around Davis and Weber Counties

Utah is the crossroads of the West, with Davis and Weber counties serving as a rail hub and transportation nexus. The area’s metro-to-mountain terrain contains some of the nation’s newest transportation corridors. U.S. Route 89 and Interstates 15 and 84 cross both counties north to south, and all western metropolitan areas are within a day’s drive.

For those flying in, there are two airports close by. Ogden-Hinckley Airport has passenger flights to and from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport; Salt Lake City International Airport, the largest airport in the area, is only 30 minutes from Hill Air Force Base.

Both counties have extensive public transportation networks, and Ogden has a Greyhound Bus Station.

Ground transportation includes bus, taxi, shuttle, light rail, hotel transportation, Lyft and Uber, and rental car service.

There are 10 car rental companies at the airport; regular shuttles take passengers to five more off airport grounds.

A bike trail provides bicycle/pedestrian access to the airport along the airport’s south side, but security concerns mean those planning to use it must apply for an airport access badge, which takes three to five business days to process.

Driving and Commuting

Hill AFB Getting To and Around Driving and Commuting

Davis and Weber counties are traversed by three interstates, one U.S. highway and various state routes.

Interstate 15 is a north-south highway that connects Davis and Weber counties. Interstate 84 splits from Interstate 15 in southern Weber County, traveling east along the top of Davis County to Morgan County. In southern Davis County, Interstate 215 peels off from Interstate 15 to provide access to Salt Lake City, where it forms a “U” around the city and many of its suburbs.

U.S. Route 89 runs north to south through Davis and Weber counties. Generally, the highway is east of Interstate 15, but portions of it overlap with the interstate.

The Utah Department of Transportation offers a wealth of information for commuters at www.udot.utah.gov, including live traffic cameras, road conditions, air quality and emergency alerts, winter driving tips and more.
