Utahns are at a crossroads. They will have to choose between investing in public transportation and sound urban planning and retaining rural charm or building the new Legacy Highway and welcoming urban hell that is Los Angeles. Every freeway in L.A. proves that building more freeways never reduces congestion. Learn from the billions of dollars wasted in L.A. and invest in sound urban planning and public transport. What a tragedy it would be to see the beautiful Wasatch Front go the way of the once beautiful Southern California.
