80126 to West Wendover NV via the I70 to Hwy 9 to Hwy 40 to SLC then I80 to West Wendover NV = 620 miles, 10 hours 49 minutes


Looks to be about an hour and 15 mins difference. Of course it depends where you are starting from I guess as those on the North side would have to back track South a ways to go I70. Fuel stops etc. should be similar either way...
Is there a way to find out about road construction/destruction? I-40 is a two lane all the way and as you meander down through the Wasatch there is often road construction. It is a pretty drive after Vernal but I will be sitting in the driver seat plenty long enough next week....just have no desire to purposly add more time to the commute.
I think it's cool that we have to routes! Great campfire stories are in the making!
