Long-Range Rural Transportation Planning
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is currently updating the Long-Range Rural Transportation Plan.
Thank you to all who provided input on the plan’s goals and objectives as well as your ideas to address transportation needs throughout rural Utah. The planning team is reviewing comments and using the feedback received to update the Long-Range Transportation Plan. Comments regarding items outside of the area for this plan are being rerouted to the appropriate planning jurisdictions.
The next formal comment period will take place in spring 2023 and will include an opportunity to review the proposed updated Long-Range Rural Transportation Plan. While the next formal comment period will take place in 2023, the public is welcome to provide input and ideas at any time throughout the planning process.
Individuals can continue to provide feedback, at any time throughout the planning process, in the following ways:
We have heard from the public regarding various transportation needs throughout the state related to general traffic, truck & RV traffic, transit and active transportation. These needs are displayed within the comment map below.
Community members have also identified important quality of life recommendations for the planning process, and asked UDOT to consider the following:
- Consider future traffic levels, air pollution and respiratory health.
- Prioritize safety, with particular attention given to vulnerable users.
- Maintain and improve job access, food options and green space.
- Ensure local communities are not burdened by transportation decision that primarily benefit pass through traffic.
