Utah's Bridges: I-70 Bridges over the Green River (2)

May 2006 (38.975 Degrees, -110.150 Degrees) 1-70 Bridge over the Green River
Another photo of I-70 crossing the Green River. The highway is 232 miles long and completed in 1957. There are no major cities along this highway. The federal government insisted the highway should be built in the middle of nowhere in order to connect California to the northeast U.S. The only choice that state officials had was to accept the federal plan or lose a national highway going through their state.

From the Green River, I-70 stretches 110 miles to the west without passing by a city, a rest area, or even a gas station. Consequently a traveler can enjoy a long ride with few signs of civilization.
