This part of the freeway was completed in 1973 at a cost of more than $61 million or $100 an inch. This film tells the epic story of how this impossible road was built on that improbable route and the people who overcame every obstacle to make sure it happened.

The Documentary was produced by Dixie State University, Directed and Edited by Phil Tuckett a professor at Dixie State University and narrated by Wilfred Brimley. There will DVD’s of the movie on sale for $20.00 each at the Showings and also at the founder’s forum.
