Regional Transportation Plan
TransPlan50 is the regional transportation plan for urban Utah County. The projects and programs proposed within the plan are a coordinated system of capital-intensive roadway projects, transit improvements, and pedestrian/bicycle facilities needed by 2050. Utah County is projected to double its population by 2050 to 1.3 million people. The plan attempts to address this growth while minimizing impacts on society and the environment while providing for enough capacity and transportation choices to ensure the region’s economy continues to flourish.
The plan focuses on building a robust, intermodal, urban transportation system. The plan's primary goals have evolved to keep pace with our rapidly expanding population and travel demands. Through stakeholder involvement, including elected officials, municipal and agency staff, and the public, five overarching goals have emerged for guild planning efforts.
Funding the Plan
Revenue expected within the planning area through 2050 is proposed at $19 billion, $14 billion toward highway operations, preservation, and projects, and $5 billion for transit operations, maintenance, and projects. New capacity rail and other major projects are generally not funded when warranted. Future funding sources will need to be identified to build the modern rail system envisioned in the plan.
