The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) develops the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) for the Salt Lake City-West Valley City and Ogden-Layton Urbanized Areas. The RTP is a fiscally constrained plan for roadway, transit, and other transportation facility improvements over the next 20-30 years. Designed to meet the travel demand of a growing population, the RTP is developed in accordance with federal guidelines. It includes roadway, transit, and active transportation facilities paired with the appropriate land use that is identified, modeled, selected, and phased, with the help of region-wide transportation partners; local communities including planners, engineers, and elected officials; stakeholders; and the general public through an extensive planning process. This process, along with the steps used to develop the RTP, are documented and supported with analysis and evaluation methods that help determine the best transportation improvements with a limited amount of funding.
