Roger admits he lives in Salt Lake City so maybe he won't ever use the highway.

I'd like these protest groups to propose viable alternatives, instead of posturing and threatening legal action for every project they dislike. Boulevards aren't the answer - especially when you discover that it means killing more homes and businesses to build them.

I'm currently looking to buy a home and have taken the possible route into consideration. Standing about a 1/4 mile away from the current Legacy highway, where I could see the cars, the noise was not at all bad, largely thanks to no trucks and 55 MPH. Being even 1 mile from the 15 has a much louder roar from the traffic. I think that by keeping the new road from trucks, and lower speed limit, plus some good sound walls, the noise factor won't be a problem. Noise barriers do work quite well. If the highway is kept relatively low and does not block the view west or east too much, I think it won't be as bad as some fear. As for the wetlands, well, progress is progress. Most of Utah is owned by the U.S. government anyway. Let them keep it wet.

UDOT picked the least destructive route, plain and simple. Deal with it.
