SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is seeking public input on new transportation planning in rural Utah.
The “Long Term Rural Transport Plan” aims to meet transport needs for the next 25 to 30 years.
“Community involvement is an important part of our transportation planning process,” said Jay Aguilar, UDOT’s long-term planning manager. “We want to make sure we communicate with the public in the most meaningful way possible as we work to keep Utah moving forward.”
The public is invited to comment and give their opinion on the construction plans by December 10. Public comments will be collected online via a short survey and comments box.
Throughout the collaborative process, UDOT will continue to update its website, hosting additional comment periods, involving local governments and keeping public engagement opportunities accessible in the future.
This transportation plan focuses on rural Utah, not urban areas. The planning process will begin from 2021 to mid-2023.
If you want to make your voice heard, visit the UDOT website and complete a survey. You can also call the project hotline at (385) 360-1900 or email them at [email protected] with comments, questions, and ideas.
