Transportation Improvement Program Public Comment Period Summary

In close collaboration with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Utah Transit Authority (UTA), and cities and counties across the region, WFRC updates the  Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) annually. Totaling more than $5 billion in vital transportation funding, the TIP identifies balanced investments in road, transit, bike, and pedestrian infrastructure that are needed in Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Tooele, Morgan, and Box Elder counties.  The 2018-2023 TIP helps to meet current transportation needs while simultaneously addressing critical future priorities throughout the region.

In August, WFRC provided a variety of opportunities for the public to provide comment on the Draft 2018-2023 TIP. The public responded with an unprecedented amount of feedback. WFRC received over 300 public comments via the online interactive map, social media, email, and two in-person open houses. The summary report highlights the tools used and the amount and type of feedback received throughout the public comment period. Responses to the numerous comments received may be viewed via the button below.
