Tonight I went to my institute class at the University of Utah Institute and on the drive home I found with great delight that they have finally finished the construction they have been doing for so long and there is a carpool lane between the North Salt Lake area to Kaysville. It was so nice to drive with freedom on the "free" way. It reminded me of the joy of driving to work over the last few weeks since they finally finished the area in Ogden that has been under construction for a good year and a half or more. They began it and their goal was to finish in the fall of 2008, and I remember thinking oh my gosh that is gonna take forever! I've been dreading having the summer end and really didn't want fall to get here, that is until I realized that this fall is the fall of 2008. So not only have they finished the construction and opened up the third lane all the way to the exit I take for work, but the last five miles of my commute, the speed limit is 75 again!!! It is pure driving bliss!
