Welcome to the uPEL User Guide Online

The Utah Planning and Environmental Linkage (uPEL) Approach was developed as a component of the UDOT Planning Division’s Utah Planning Network (UPLAN) system. Based on conceptual guidance from FHWA for implementing the coordination requirements of SAFETEA-LU, the system focuses on the compilation, analysis, and sharing of broad-based planning data and its integration with a wide range of transportation scenarios (combinations of projects) to provide comparisons and facilitate agency coordination and involvement.
