We use quite a few resources to construct these pages, and we try to keep it up to date (but that is not always the case!). Additional assistance and reference material was provided from some of the AARoads contributors. To complete the AARoads Utah Roads and Highways pages, we have utilized a variety of resources including:
- CountyLemonade on Flickr – Site contributor Garrett Smith.
- @LanRovr0 – Site contributor Landry Heaton.
- U.S. Census for population figures, geographical size, and demographic information
- Rand McNally Atlas and Thomas Guides – to confirm exit numbers, exit configurations, and identify street names within urban areas
- Automobile Association of America – for still more map research, especially current and vintage maps
- Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Highway Referencing for including mileage, route locations, descriptions, mileposts, exits/interchanges, and various features along the route.
- UDOT Highway Resolutions for all legislative history of various state highways, including applications to AASHTO to add, delete, and modify Interstate and U.S. highways in Utah
- Other resources include personal observations from hundreds of trips around the Beehive State and newspaper articles that are individually cited mostly for ongoing construction projects and completion dates
