ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A new long-range transportation plan for the St. George area calls for as much as $1.5 billion in projects to keep up with future growth.

Most of the money would go toward highway projects, but the plan also includes mass transit and bicycle and pedestrian routes.

Among the suggested projects are the reconstruction of the interchange at Interstate 15 and Bluff Street that will help relieve congestion.

Planners also say I-15 should be widened to at least three lanes.
