Maintenance and Facility Management
The Maintenance and Facility Management team’s focus is to provide the latest in innovative tools, resources and assistance to our customers. Our core mission is to “Keep Utah Moving”, we accomplish this by partnering with our stakeholders to provide real time data, budget forecasting and maintaining our lands and buildings and roadway assets in a state of good repair, while continuing to protect our environment.
Research and Innovation
The Research team works with UDOT experts and external partners to identify and prioritize transportation research that meets UDOT’s most important needs. This is done through an annual prioritization workshop, also called UTRAC. Research staff manage the selected projects, publish final reports, host final presentations, and support project champions in implementing research results. The Research team also manages UDOT’s library.
The Innovation team gathers employee ideas and steers the best of them through to implementation across UDOT. Many of these ideas are highlighted in the annual Innovation and Efficiencies report.
Beyond these core functions, the Research & Innovation division works behind the scenes with national transportation organizations, initiates national surveys, coordinates with UDOT’s TRB annual meeting attendees, takes on quick research requests, and much more.
