    My deepest sympathies to the families of all involved in this terrible crash.

    The section of SR-201 from 5600 West to where it connects to I-80 near Black Rock has long been dangerous and inadequate for the volume of traffic that uses it daily (I commute using part of this section twice every workday). UDOT should expand this section of SR-201 from a 4-lane, two-way highway to a 6-lane freeway like the section of SR-201 east from 5600 West to the Spaghetti Bowl at the I-15/I-80 interchange. This would certainly improve the safety of the western section of SR-201, as well as its capacity to handle the volume of traffic using it.
