Long-Range Rural Transportation Plan
What is the Long-Range Rural Transportation Plan?
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) develops a Long-Range Rural Transportation Plan every four years to plan and prioritize anticipated transportation system needs for the next 25-30 years. This plan focuses on rural areas of the state of Utah and is combined with other plans.
UDOT’s Long-Range Rural Transportation Plan is currently being updated through a planning process that began in 2021 and extends through mid-2023. A key part of the planning process is involving the public and various stakeholders (agencies and constituents) in a meaningful way.
Please assist us in developing a plan for rural Utah by providing feedback on the transportation goals, needs and strategies for the plan below.
