The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is an agency of the state government of Utah, United States; it is usually referred to by its initials UDOT (pronounced "you-dot"). UDOT is charged with maintaining the more than6,000 miles (9,700 km) of roadway that constitute the network of state highways in Utah. The agency is headquartered in the Calvin L. Rampton state office complex in Taylorsville, Utah.[3]

The Executive Director is Carlos Braceras [2] [1] and the Deputy Director is Shane Marshall. [2] Project priorities are set forth by the independent Utah Transportation Commission,[4] which coordinates directly with the UDOT's executive director.[5]
