Utah Transportation Commission Advances List of Recommended Projects for Early Construction
SALT LAKE CITY (April 13, 2017) – The Utah Transportation Commission today approved a draft list of projects to be funded and/or accelerated as a result of the 2017 Utah State Legislature’s $1 billion bonding bill. That list is now available for public comment.
Three of the recommended projects will focus on improving traffic flow and alleviating congestion on I-15 along the Wasatch Front. Pending final approval, the schedule for these projects will be accelerated to begin construction next year, during the 2018 construction season.
To see a complete list of the proposed projects and to offer comments, go to the UDOT website (udot.utah.gov) and click on the Transportation Commission hyperlink.
After considering public input, the Utah Transportation Commission will make its final decision on the project recommendations next month at its May commission meeting in Heber City.
