Road to Nowhere

[Highway Star] Call me crazy, but when I think of scenic road trips what comes to mind are classics like Route 1 (Pacific Coast Highway), Historic Route 66, and the Santa Fe Trail. But the 14-mile long Legacy Parkway? Not so much. I mean sure, I enjoy the lovely cookie cutter housing developments and oil refineries that decorate this useless stretch of asphalt as much as anyone. But SCENIC BYWAY? The cities of Centerville, Farmington, North Salt Lake, West Bountiful, and Woods Cross are looking to secure official Scenic Byway status for the Legacy Parkway from the Federal Highway Administration. Yeah, and while we're at it, let's give the IKEA in Draper Historic Landmark status too. (Ted Scheffler)


  1. That's it now I am convinced they put something in the prozac here......

  2. I took the parkway, and it was scenic, but I'm a marsh lover. I really had to look hard to see the refinery too. More note worthy... the stench when you are down wind of the South Davis Sewer plant. Or perhaps the number of dead animals per mile between Bountiful and Farmington... A racoon was the first casualty...
