ultragrampajaysonhyer is correct. People slow down to exit the ramp which
cause everyone behind them to slow down. The ripple effect has cars braking in
the fast line all the way back to Farmington on some days. Also, you have
drivers entering the freeway from the Centerville on-ramp trying to cut across 4
lanes of traffic so they can take the left hand exit.It's a dangerous
and unwarranted off-ramp
Hey, don't worry about that left exit into Bountiful. With the express
lane it will be a 'carpool-only' exit.
ultragrampa, even though getting off the freeway in Bountiful is easy with the
way it is configured, because people have to move into the left lane to get off
you get slow people in the fast lane and it slows the flow of traffic in that
area. Don't see it, try driving southbound through that stretch between 6
and 8 am on a weekday.
Unimportant question of the day: Why did DN use a photo of I-80 in Parley's
Canyon in an article about I-15 in Davis County? Don't you guys have any
stock photos of I-15? And hey, Ironmomo, that left exit into
Bountiful on SB I-15 is genius; no lights, no clover-leaf, just cars getting
outta my way to I can floor it in the fast lane. Just what does it
For the last several years there has been construction on the 1-15. This really
isn't news. (JK) At least drivers are given a heads up and UDOT is willing
to work with the traffic peak times. The worst is closures of freeways during
peak times. CalTrans has the corner on that wonderful planning! Hope it works
out as planned.
Next will be the whiners complaining about more construction. Probably the same
group that doesn't change their oil regularly...
Hopefully they'll get rid of that left hand exit from south bound I-15 into
Bountiful. It's the biggest plug in the pipe.
Express lanes. What a waste of time and money.
