I see head-on collisions due to the ingrained idea of always driving on the right. They better have a traffic cop out there the first few weeks.

They're probably going to channelize the lanes so people will have to run up on a curb to go the wrong way. Which of course means they probably will.

People don't realize it but the I-77/I-85 interchange is basically a modified high-speed diverging diamond.

I-77 crosses over itself to facilitate merging from I-85.

Is the turbine interchange not what they used at the southern 485/85 interchange?

Please tell me there is something in the works to redo that interchange. Please, please, please.

That interchange singlehandedly creates merging delays that go on for hours.
I expect an accident there just about every day. Horrible design.

Austin has "The Split" where I-35 splits into an upper and lower deck. It backs up traffic close to 24 hours a day.

It's still better than the way it was before, if you can remember.
