The Legacy Parkway - State Route 67 - runs north from Salt Lake City for 14 miles, roughly paralleling I-15, with intentional meanders to enhance its scenic qualities. It provides views of the Great Salt Lake and surrounding wetlands, and also views of the towering Wasatch Mountains to the east.
The parkway provides a second artery north from Salt Lake City into Davis/Antelope Island communities, and thus reduces congestion on I-15. Parkway construction was controversial and often delayed by legal haggling, while parties worked to find an acceptable balance that would provide a viable road to carry traffic while also protecting the fragile wetlands around the lake.
Semitrailers are not allowed on the road, except when there are accidents or problems on I-15.
A paved foot-bike-horse pathway follows alongside the road. There is also a separate unpaved path. Parking areas along the east side of the parkway provide access to these trails, and to the associated Legacy Nature Preserve.
Legacy effectively serves as an extension of I-215. You can easily get on the Parkway from I-215 at about 2100 North in Salt Lake City. The northern terminus is at the I-15/US 89 junction on the north side of Farmington.
Besides the north and south junctions, there are only two other entrance/exit points - one at Parrish Lane in Centerville and another at 500 South in Woods Cross.
The Parkway has a 55 mph speed limit.
