UTA Network Study
As the Utah Transit Authority nears completion of the FrontLines 2015 program, it is beginning a study to identify the next tier of capital projects and potential operations strategies to focus on delivering after the 2015 program. Called the UTA Network Planning/Next Tier Projects Study (Network Study), it will use the latest Regional Transportation Plans (RTPs) developed by the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) and Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG). The Network Study will build on the work completed in the RTPs to identify potential capital investments and lower profile investments, such as headway improvements, system coverage, connectivity, transfer centers and enhancements at key stops. UTA is working in close coordination with WFRC, MAG and the Utah Department of Transportation on this study.
The goal of the Network Study is to identify a group of projects—not necessarily major capital investments—for UTA to take into the next phase of project development. By applying the growth principals outlined in the Wasatch Choice for 2040 document, the Network Study will also assist in highlighting various approaches for creating more competitive projects and improving the likelihood that certain projects will be considered for future implementation. This study is anticipated to be complete by November 2012.
The study area for the UTA Network Study includes Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, Tooele and Utah counties.
