I can take 215 in either direction and get home in the same amount of time.

Took me a while to figure out the 215 when locals reference it intersecting with other roads...agree it's confusing at first. Disagree about the food at Timbers though.

We've taken the 215 when coming back from up north to bypass holiday traffic when the spaghetti bowl was under construction. Took it from where it starts up by the Speedway all the way to the other end where it meets the 515. Took about 45 minutes or so. It was kind of the long way around but it beat sitting in traffic.

Now it's under construction. I believe they're putting in an HOV lane just past Rainbow. Not sure how far north that is going to go.

Not HOV, just a 4th lane between Tropicana and Durango.

There is also a massive interchange project at 215&95 in the NW with 3 of 4 fly overs under construction.

When the traffic people are reporting incidents they need to learn to specify (some do, but not all) which Decatur 215 exit. The one on the South side or North side. Goes for Jones as well. I like how Phoenix does it, they have names as well to go along with the freeways there. That can help with the confusion.
