UDOT plans to open a new lane on I-15 from Lindon to 500 East in American Fork this weekend. click here also. I applaud the efforts, but I am still dismayed that more is not being done quicker. I seriously doubt this move will have that much of an effect, but it is something. I know we are dealing with a State Agency, funding and the Feds, but we are years behind the Lindon curve (pun intended) on this. Too bad we (Utah County) were treated like 2nd class citizens during Olympic appropriations. There hopefully is good news..... With Lt. Governor Herbert former Utah County Commissioner on board, Governor Hunstman should give a listening ear to the plight of the slightly moving parking lot we call the freeway from AF to Provo. State Rep. Dougall is giving a strong voice as well. Let's hope this project continues on pace with the entire commuter lanes completed soon. Which gives rise to an upcoming post.....traffic in American Fork!
