As a one time Utah resident, I find this pretty cool. It’s nice to see that they’re trying their hand at new technologies and collaborating with other agencies. Let’s just hope the monumental task of widening I-15 will finally end in the near future…you wouldn’t think Utah is a hotspot for crazy traffic congestion, but when you only have one major highway, and it’s main stretches along the high population areas have been under major construction for many years, it can get pretty frustrating. Overall they’ve managed the project surprising well considering how huge it truly is. I’d go back to visit just to take a drive once it’s all completed!
