      I have heard that it will be finished in July. Which is funny. It is already finished. They just won’t let anyone drive on it. I guess the roads won’t work unless there is pretty landscaping around it. Oh wait… that’s done too.

    @Greg, seriously, whta’s up with that? The lights are up, the ramps look done, why can’t they open it up in sections? This is a reminder that St. George is still small, cuz in a bigger city, sections would open upon completion. I mean, does this interchange need to have a ribbon cutting ceremony first? lmao!!

    you know, with the City building their landscaped islands on Dixie Dr. , The City is most likely the ones crying to UDOT …NOT TO OPEN up the Interchange…. But wait til they are done … so that the city can make a big to do about how the city made everything happen… and there will be a merry go round in every city park……
