Utah’s Highway Boss Wants More Transparency, Collaboration

The Utah Department of Transportation has not been transparent enough about its decisions and spending, fueling scandals and eroding public trust.
Sometimes, the agency has been so focused on building big road projects quickly that quality concerns came second. And it has missed opportunities to partner with other agencies to reduce air pollution by connecting better with mass transit or adding bicycle lanes and better walkways.
Instead, they come from Carlos Braceras, UDOT’s new executive director.These criticisms come not from the environmentalists who often fight UDOT or the stuck-in-traffic commuters who often curse it.
