  • Behind the data: For the first performance period only, baseline condition and 2-year targets are not required for the Peak-Hour Excessive Delay measure.


  • Annual Hours of Peak-Hour Excessive Delay (PHED) Per Capita

    (Utah) Delay is anticipated to be reduced due to the implementation of transportation improvement programs, but increase with growing population that is outside the UZA but traveling inside the UZA.

    N/A

    (Utah) At the time this target was initially set, the trend in delay was unknown. UDOT and WFRC have looked at the data and data trend, compared with other states, and determined together that our 4-year goal was too precise and have agreed upon new targets. The long-range transportation plan and STIP includes strategies such as new roadways, freeway and roadway widening projects, new high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, new frontage roads, new traffic interchanges, interchange improvements, Freeway Management System infrastructure to improve the flow of traffic, regional travel and trip reduction programs, and transit, bike, pedestrian and other public transportation projects that all contribute to reduced congestion.
