Two Minute Update Utah: Exec. Dir. Braceras On Utah’s Population Boom

In this Two Minute State DOT Update video we hear from Utah Executive Director Carlos Braceras. A 30 year UDOT veteran, Braceras was appointed to lead the department in May of 2013. In Sept. 2017, the board of directors of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials elected Braceras AASHTO Vice President. Braceras tells Transportation TV “To be recognized by my peers and asked to serve in the role of Vice President, I’m excited.” Braceras discusses the many transportation challenges facing his state and the nation, including emergent transportation technologies, population growth and funding. Speaking of the Salt Lake City, metropolitan area Braceras says, “We’re going to need more people taking transit—in fact we project we’re going to need to double transit ridership in the next few years.”
