    So..uh..how long is that Dixie Dr. interchange gonna sit looking deserted and ready to open for weeks. Sure would be nice to use it. They took over 2 years to build it, and now it’s just remaining closed for???

  • Barb June 25, 2012 at 4:58 am

    No kidding, right? What is the hold up? Dixie Dr has already been widened and ready to handle the extra traffic. Oh, please don’t tell me there waiting for a ribbon cutting and rootbeer floats on pioneer day or whatever bahahah!!

    Whats the big deal? It was never an interchange before, so whats the hurry? Looks lik they are landscaping the area and a road on the east side is under construction. It will open the end of July

    Yay let’s spray some tar and then throw gravel on Riverroad! Ugghhhh. I do not I stand why you do this on a highly trafficked road.

  • Barb June 25, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    Yo, it’s St. Geezy, there is no rush for road construction here at all cuz we have no bumper to bumper gridlock, so why would there be rush to open it? I’ll be surprised if it opens by this summer though.

  • Jade June 25, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    I understand that it wasn’t there before, but obviously they built it for a reason (convenience) hence why I’m so anxious for it to open. I live on the westside and cannot wait to use Dixie to get to the 15 instead of Sunset and Bluff!!
