Utah Lindy Exchange Travel Directions
 
First of all, here are some basic tips concerning driving in Utah. 
 
  1. All addresses in Salt Lake County branch out of Temple Square, downtown.  Anything designated East is East of that, yada yada...
  2. Addresses in Utah County (Provo, Orem, etc) do not follow the above rule.  Provo  has its own numbering system, so does Orem. So, those of you who will be in that area, please be sure to note which city you are supposed to be in...
  3. Most major streets are roughly in a grid, running either East/West or North/South.  If you know the address/coordinates of your destination, you probably can get there without a map, or even directions!
  4. The major freeways are I-15 (North/South through the state, roughly parallel to State Street), I-215 (loops the valley, intersects with I-15 twice, and I-80 once), and I-80 (East/West through the state). 
  5. Traveling through the South end of Salt Lake Valley in the late afternoon, early evening, especially on I-15 is a bad idea.  If it is rush hour, it is usually best to avoid I-15, if possible. 
  6. 1300 South = 13th South
