Utah Department of Transportation

Once again, the Utah Department of Transportation is a winner in the annual America's Transportation Awards competition sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).

This year UDOT is being honored in the Quality of Life/Community Development category for its work to provide reliable high-speed communications capability to travelers and emergency services providers in Big and Little Cottonwood canyons.

Working in a public/private partnership with Crown Castle Fiber, UDOT was able to install nearly 15 miles of fiber optic cabling and a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) using 21 antenna poles. The result of this improved communications infrastructure has been enhancements to 911 emergency services, high-speed data transmission and 4G wireless carrier services for cities, businesses, customers and residents. UDOT has also been able to use the fiber backbone to install ITS devices for active traffic management.
