Taylorsville • Unveiling some of the longer-term plans that begin in 2017, the Utah Transportation Commission took a first step Tuesday toward spending millions more to widen Interstate 15 between Lehi and Draper, extend the new Mountain View Corridor into West Valley City and widen University Parkway between Orem and Provo.
Those are among major updates it included Tuesday as it approved a draft annual update to its six-year State Transportation Improvement Program. It will now take comments on that plan before finalizing it in August. The commission said the full plan should be online by Thursday at www.udot.utah.gov.
The 115-page document lists every highway project proposed to receive state or federal funds in any year between 2014 and 2019. Most projects have been listed for years as they stood in line awaiting money. But the plan adds a few new projects in the later years of the plan, or shows addtional funding for already planned projects.
