(Provo-AP) -- A transportation planner thinks the Provo area is headed for heavy freeway congestion unless Interstate 15 is expanded soon.

Darrell Cook is director of the Mountainland Association of Governments. He says the Utah Valley will become a "landscape of congestion" by 2010. He forecasts a lot more stop-and-go driving through Provo unless more traffic lanes are added to the main north-south route.

He thinks the state Legislature needs to devote more money to those expansions. But that hasn't happened so far.
