Bypass Options: This map shows proposed highway bypass routes. The bright green Alternative 1 extends for three miles from Highway 87 to Tyler Parkway at a cost of maybe $15 million. The yellow phase two of Alternative 1 would later add a $100 million highway to bypass Star Valley as well. The blue Alternative 2 would bypass both Payson and Star Valley at a cost of perhaps $100 million. The tan, 16-mile-long Alternative 3 would cost at least $160 million.
