56Salt Lake Open HouseUDOT Region II Engineering“I was looking at the 2040 RTP and it does not seem like the I-15 HOV off ramps at 100 South in phase 3 makes much sense today with the Salt Palace blocking on the East and rail lines  and the river blocking movement to the west past 1000 West.”8/1/20131YesWFRC will take this comment into consideration as it develops the draft 2015-2040 RTP update.
