UDOT Says Data Justifies Sound Wall
The Utah Department of Transportation has started preliminary work on a westbound truck-climbing lane on Interstate Highway 80 at Jeremy Ranch. The project includes fencing and a wildlife crossing at the top of Parley’s Summit, as well as a 17-foot by 3,200-foot noise barrier. Citizens Against the Wall claims, however, that the wall violates UDOT's own policies and has asked the governor’s office to investigates, as Carolyn Murray reports.
