The 2019-2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) directly benefits communities because it improves air quality, supports a vibrant economy, and ultimately enhances our overall quality of life. With Utah’s population increase dramatically by 2050, responsible planning for the future of our transportation system is essential to ensure Utahns continue to enjoy an enviable quality of life.
The RTP identifies the balanced investments in road, transit, and bike infrastructure that are needed across the state to stay ahead of the growth that is coming, while simultaneously responding to demographic shifts and market demand for a range of housing and transportation choices. Implementing the Plan will increase access to jobs and educational opportunities, decrease harmful emissions, and provide for maintenance of the infrastructure that we already have in place.
