I recently drove on the new Legacy Parkway, and I give a lot of credit to UDOT for a job well done. I believe the parkway will be a great asset to the people of Utah for many years to come. However, as I drove, I was very confused about why former Mayor Rocky Anderson and the Sierra Club were so concerned about building it. As I drove the parkway I noticed what appeared to be a landfill and a sewage treatment plant. I also saw an electrical substation, high-voltage power lines, a prison, pre-existing roads and subdivisions full of homes and apartments. I applaud efforts to conserve nature, but I believe the efforts were misguided in this case, to the severe detriment of Utah taxpayers.
