Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio Traffic planners in Utah County want to redesign almost all of the overpasses once the widening of I-15 begins.

Other than three newer overpasses the rest from Lehi to Spanish Fork will all be getting make overs. "Many of them will look much different. They will look more like interchanges that you see up in Salt Lake or like University Parkway," says Geoff Dupaix, Public Involvement Coordinator at UDOT Region Three.

The section between University Parkway and Center Street Provo is getting a lot of attention. One option: "A frontage road system which would allow access from local roads," Dupaix adds.

So drivers would have three new spots to merge on and off the freeway. They also are studying connector ramps to get UVSC student to class. UDOT will start taking public comments on this massive project this fall.
