Overview

As part of its mission to improve quality of life through transportation, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has initiated an environmental study along the I-15 corridor between Farmington and Salt Lake City.

Most recently, the team identified multiple alternatives along the I-15 corridor and in the surrounding communities and invited the public to comment on these alternatives from November 10, 2022 – January 13, 2023. The Alternatives Phase comment period has now concluded. We’re grateful for those that shared their ideas and feedback.

The UDOT study team is currently reviewing the comments received during the comment period and continuing work on the project alternatives based on this feedback. A summary of the comments received and an updated Alternatives Development and Screening Report will be posted here when it is available. If you have any questions please contact the study team.

Quality of Life Framework

As the population in Utah continues to grow at a record pace, transportation planning and development play a key role in keeping Utah moving, facilitating a strong economy, and maintaining a high quality of life. As such this study will use the Quality of Life Framework outlined below to inform decision making including in developing the study Purpose and Need.
