SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The public can begin commenting on a $46 billion long-range transit plan for northern Utah today.
Open houses will be held in Davis County tonight, followed by three more in Salt Lake and Utah counties.
The plan envisions a connected transportation network stretching from Weber County to Utah County.
Transportation planners hope to reduce motorists' delays caused by congestion and will help guide which roads and transit lines will be build during the next 23 years. The plan suggests raising gas taxes, building a narrower and toll-free Mountain View corridor in Salt Lake and Utah counties and widening Interstate 15 and 80.
