There is a light at the end of the tunnel for drivers traveling between Silver Creek and Wanship. UDOT is rebuilding that stretch of the highway and they're halfway done. Renai Bodley has the story.

Residents of Tollgate Canyon say their access out of the canyon is getting blocked and public safety is a stake as a major construction project on I-80 is underway and will be until late in 2015. UDOT says it was their only option. Lynn Ware Peek has more.

For the second year, UDOT is conducting a pilot program during Sundance that would allow buses to use the shoulder along 224 as a travel lane during congested periods. The public is invited, to hear about the proposal and make comments, at a Tuesday night meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Richins Service Building. Rick Brough has more.
