Comments sought on UDOT’s long-range plan

Project studies 30-year rural transportation needs

The Utah Department of Transportation in a statement emailed Monday announced it is developing its Statewide Rural Long-Range Transportation Plan to forecast transportation needs in rural communities for the next 30 years. UDOT has identified an initial list of projects and is asking for public input through Aug. 26.

The public is asked to review the plan and provide comments as needed. A link to the project comment map can be found at www.udot.utah.gov/go/region4.

To provide comments via email, contact [email protected].

Following the public comment period, UDOT will review the input, consider the comments and could make adjustments to the project list. After that a draft plan will be prepared and a final 30-day public comment period will ensue. Following the final 30-day public comment period, UDOT will review the input, make adjustments and finalize the project list.

The final project list will be part of the recommended UDOT Statewide Rural Long-Range Transportation Plan, which will be completed by late fall 2019.
