    Towering cliffs dwarf vehicles near Rattlesnake Bend as I-70 wends through the spectacular scenic area 15 miles west of Green River, Utah. One of the unique engineering challenges of Interstate 70 was the ten-mile section through Spotted Wolf Canyon with its "V" shaped canyon walls. Rock slabs were split from the walls and used as fill to elevate the roadway. The technique provided sufficient room for the four-lane divided highway and preserved the rugged appearance of the environment.

    This section of Interstate highway (I-95 in Virginia) illustrates many of the safety features being built into the Interstate System, which will result in saving 8,000 lives each year when the system is complete. These features include: controlled access, wide median dividing opposing traffic, long sight distances, gentle curvatures, all crossings separated by bridges or underpasses, wide paved shoulders, and acceleration and deceleration lanes. Note also good design integrating esthetics and safety, including retention of trees in median and interchange area to reduce headlight glare, and adaptation of all highway elements to geographical features.
