I've gone to the Dixie Regional Transportation Expo the last couple of years and I have to admit -- I love it!

Of course I'm a sucker for free refreshments, but while that's an attraction, it's not the main attraction at the Expo.

As a radio show host, I get questions asked of me all the time that could be answered simply by just attending the event.

Will they finally get a SunTran bus to Springdale and Zion National Park? The answer is at the Expo.

What's the timeline for George Washington Boulevard? Yeah, they'll have the answer there.

How long will the Exit 11 in Washington construction project take and what will it do to I-15? The Transportation Expo has got that one covered.

More topics/displays:

  • 1450 South (St. George) to Southern Parkway (SR-7) – & SR-7 Interchange -Washington City
  • UDOT – Environmental Assessment for potential new interchange at 1-15 and 700 South in St. George
