The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) administers approximately $40 million in federal transportation funding annually to local communities through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Program, Surface Transportation (STP) Program, and Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) within the Salt Lake-West Valley and the Ogden-Layton urbanized areas.

In addition to administering these funding programs, WFRC develops and manages the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a six-year program of roadway, transit, and active transportation projects for the Salt Lake-West Valley and the Ogden-Layton urbanized areas. It is updated once a year and provides a carefully reviewed prioritization of roadway, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian projects, including operation and maintenance of the existing transportation system, in the region. The development of the TIP is completed in close collaboration with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Utah Transit Authority (UTA), and cities and counties along the Wasatch Front, and aligns with the Wasatch Choice Vision. Public input is sought each year regarding projects proposed for inclusion in the TIP. The program implements state and local road, transit, and active transportation projects identified in the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), as well as other plans with a combination of federal, state, and local transportation funds. The TIP’s total program amount represents approximately $3 to 5 billion of infrastructure investment over a six-year period.

WFRC sought public review and comment on its Draft 2023-2028 TIP and corresponding air quality conformity determination during a public comment period from June 25, 2022 to July 30, 2022. After comments are reviewed, the statewide TIP – which includes the WFRC TIP and the TIPs of the other three Metropolitan Planning Organizations in Utah – will be sent to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for approval, which is expected in October 2022.
