--PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND OPEN HOUSE--

 

The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) has released its draft Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and is seeking public comment on projects identified for the program. The TIP is updated every year, with the current program outlining proposed new construction projects to be funded from 2015 through 2020.

Projects identified in the TIP come from the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The RTP identifies the long-range transportation needs for the region, including transit, roads, bicycle, and pedestrian projects. Amendments to the current RTP are also being considered and are available for public comment and review. The corresponding air quality conformity analyses will also be available.
