Implement the plan through the cooperative effort of local, state, and federal officials.
Implementation of the 2015-2040 RTP is a cooperative effort of local, state, and federal officials. The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) has established a process to continuously monitor on-going development and progress in implementing recommendations in the 2015- 2040 RTP. WFRC also works with other agencies to address short-range congestion, pavement preservation, and bridge replacement and rehabilitation needs through management systems. In addition, WFRC helps conduct corridor and environmental studies for major roadway and transit projects, and assists local communities in master plan updates. These efforts help refine the recommendations in the 2015-2040 RTP and encourage implementation.
Municipalities and counties in the Wasatch Front region, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), and Utah Transit Authority (UTA) are responsible for implementing of the projects in the 2015-2040 RTP. WFRC works with these agencies to encourage them to pursue the facility capital improvements recommended in the 2015-2040 RTP and incorporates the Phase 1 projects into the short-range Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
Additional information can be accessed regarding the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Transportation and Land Use Connection (TLC) programs, as well as the TIP and Wasatch Front Economic Development District, below.
