Arches Recreation Hotspot Study
The world-class recreational amenities in the Moab area have generated significant tourism activity, and all expectations are that this will continue to grow as Utah markets the destination internationally. This activity creates stress on local infrastructure systems. Moab’s Main Street is particularly impacted because, unlike other recreation destination areas in Utah, their corridor is also a major freight traffic route. UDOT asked Jones & DeMille Engineering and Rural Community Consultants to help develop a list of options. Once these ideas were prioritized by a Steering Committee, cost estimates were developed, and implementation strategies will be pursued.
