Public Comment Needed for Transportation Projects

Public Comment Needed for Transportation Projects
Posted on 07/11/2017

Your voice is needed to help designate funding for transportation projects in our area. The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) wants your input via an interactive online map and at two open houses to be held in July. Public comment will help shape how and local road, transit, bike, and pedestrian projects are funded.

To comment on the proposed projects, please view the Draft 2018 - 2023 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Interactive Map and provide comments via the public comment layer. Public comment on the Draft 2018-2023 TIP runs through Saturday, August 5. 

Representatives will be available to answer questions about the TIP projects via two in-person open houses held on Tuesday, July 18 at the Ogden Intermodal Center at 2350 Wall Avenue in Ogden and Thursday, July 20 at the Salt Lake Central Station at 250 South 600 West in Salt Lake City. Both events will run from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Portions of the open houses will be streamed live via WFRC's Facebook account.

WFRC is responsible for selecting projects in the TIP that receive funding from three federal funding programs - 1) the Urban Surface Transportation Program (STP), 2) the Congestion Mitigation Air Quality Program (CMAQ), and 3) the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).
