From Salt Lake Tribune:

With the reconstructed Interstate 15 in Utah County open, it is fitting to look back at the role open records played in the controversial project.
 
The $1.1 billion I-15 Corridor Reconstruction saw the highway and many interchanges rebuilt, and had thousands of drivers weaving around orange construction barrels for more than two years. But there were also allegations that Provo River Constructors received the contract through political connections rather than through merit.
