Seven more miles of roads of limited value going nowhere. How many billions of dollars has the UDOT wasted on their many trails? UDOT has too much money for a depressed economy where they can spend so many billions of dollars on pork spending for roads to nowhere. We are in a recession and this agency has billions to spend on projects of little value while our state and cities are flat broke. A billion dollars sent to China has an economic zero $dollar$ growth for Utah.

Now how does UDOT acquire so much wealth and power to force citizens to live in poverty and be homeless? Who is paying the taxes for UDOT to be so prosperous that it can support many foreign nations with billions of dollars of economic growth with Utah economy is in a state of collapse? How can UDOT act so proud about forcing americans to live in public poverty?

Why not share the wealth of UDOT with some american manufacturing and industry paying decent middle income wages ($200,000/yr)? A $15,000/yr job is below the standards for established Utah poverty level baselined at $50,000/yr personal incomes.

A freeway winding from Bluffdale to Magna. What use is that? We need a freeway running east and west in this valley, not another north to south freeway going nowhere.
