    Catherine, just as a point of clarification, I’m not sure the Federal Government contributed any considerable funding for this project. However, they do have a significant supervisory and management role on the Interstate Highway System, as well as the final say on the approval for new interstate access through an Access Justification Report (AJR). I believe there were several new requests for access to the Interstate on the I-15 Core project.

    You’re right; I edited the post to indicate that UDOT is required to have a competitive bidding process.
