What I find impressive is that SLC is simultaneously building massive amounts of new mass-transit and road/highway infrastructure!

Airport Line
Draper Line
Jordan Line
West Valley Line
FrontRunner South (SLC to Provo)

Major Road Projects:
Legacy Parkway (A new freeway opening this fall)
I-80 Total Reconstruction and Widening
Mountain View Corridor (New 50+ mile freeway running on Utah County's and Salt Lake County's west sides)
I-15 Total Reconstruction and Expansion (Completely rebuilding 45 miles of I-15 from Lehi to Spanish Fork, in Utah County)
New Freeway for Tooele County

These major projects among countless new arterial and expressway routes, and street widenings.

You add this all up, and we'll be in great shape in the years ahead.

We'll have a great freeway system. A great rail system. And a great network of arterials to supplement it all.
Life is nicer at 70 miles per hour
