INCREASE CAPACITY

With funds provided from the Utah Legislature, UDOT works hard to improve mobility throughout the state by expanding the transportation system. This not only includes adding additional roadways and lanes but also using innovations such as managed lanes and new configurations for intersections and interchanges.

Even with current efforts communities continue to grow, increasing the importance of coordination with Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and local governments to encourage corridor preservation. As the population increases, it is inevitable that capacity will need to be added to the existing transportation system.

Since 2006 more than 575 lane miles have been added to the state system.
