The 9th annual Dixie Regional Transportation Expo is here in St. George, UT today. Now that Southern Utah home sales and building permits are on the rise, so are livability and traffic changes. Therefore, it’s more important than ever for this year’s Transportation Expo. And since planning efforts around the area have already been underway, St. George and surrounding communities are up for the challenge.
Stay in the loop about transportation changes that will take place over the next 30 years by attending the Dixie Regional Transportation Expo. You can learn about efforts to expand city parks, trail systems, road projects and more. And, by attending, you will be eligible to win a door prize like a golf pass or a Kindle Fire.
At this year’s expo, there will be a lot of interest surrounding the pending projects for St. George Blvd. and the I-15 Interchange. It’s an area that has been talked about intensely during traffic studies over the past year. So, many local St. George residents are looking forward to the solutions that will be announced at the expo. There will be a lot of talk about improvements from River Road to 900 East along St. George Blvd.
There will also be quite a bit of talk about a face lift for the I-15 Interchange, which will be changed to a “Diverging Diamond Interchange”. You can view the $17 million project and design details while at the expo. And, more projects of interest will be the addition of a new interchange at Red Hills Parkway and Bluff Street, the Washington Parkway, an extension of the Southern Parkway and the Mall Drive Bridge. Just a quick 30 minute tour will keep you in the loop about all the changes and development coming to the Dixie Region.
