My family likes to play a game called Settlers of Catan. In this wonderful award-winning game, there is a bonus point awarded for the player who can maintain the “Longest Road”. It is a cherished award in our family.
Although there’s nothing awarded beyond bragging rights, it is fairly safe to say that the Utah Department of Transportation will have the Longest Road as it pertains to express lanes for the foreseeable future. The length of the facility? According to recent articles, the I-15 Express Lanes gap closure is complete, and there are now 72 continuous miles. Congratulations, UDOT! Now, would you be interested in trading lumber for wool?
