Wasatch Front Central Corridor Study

Utah's population is anticipated to nearly double by 2050. That means nearly twice as many demands on our roads and transit lines. More people mean more goods and services to be delivered, more employees commuting to work and more errands to run. 

While travel demands continue to grow, there is less room to widen roads or add new transportation facilities. This outlook of considerable growth with limited space is most concentrated along the I-15/FrontRunner corridor from southern David County to northern Utah County.

To prepare for such a rapidly changing transportation future, Utah's four largest transportation agencies (MAG, UDOT, UTA and WFRC) came together to conduct the Wasatch Front Central Corridor Study. Their goal was to develop a more integrated range of solutions along the I-15/FrontRunner corridor that could serve Utahns through 2050.

The study examined three potential scenarios, eventually developing a hybrid mobility scenario that encompassed solutions from the other scenarios. These solutions, which combine better managing the existing roadway network and building more transit, are still exploratory and will be integrated into Regional Transportation Plans for further discussion and vetting among state and local leaders and the public.
