Utah’s Transportation ChallengeUncategorized, by Catherine Higgins.
Utah is facing increased volume of freight moving through the state, unprecedented population growth and even faster growth of the volume of vehicles on our roads. These factors along with budget constraints pose a challenge to the Department of Transportation.
The presentation below shows our UDOT wide shift in the way we do business. We will be taking a tactical, surgical approach to enhance mobility and improve safety.
While this approach is a shift in tactics, one thing has not changed: we want to reduce delay as efficiently and effectively as possible. Unreasonable delay has real implications for road users when it comes to traveling to and from work, visiting friends and family or going on vacation. UDOT is ultimately in the business of improving quality of life.
Please view this short presentation and respond with your questions or comments.
