Im going to go to the open house and get some info as I'd like to see what other options are available.
I would like to see flyover ramps but due to the proximity of exits in both directions it would make for really long ramps. Almost any option would be very pricey. I like the idea of a new exit to the north, but how would that affect real estate activity near the current highway? Not as suitable for commercial business and already too cluttered with commercial to be able to develop residential. I'm looking forward to the options they come up with. Tough one for sure.

The outer belt was a nice concept but probably has no hope anytime soon due to current realities.

Beyond an outer belt a better project may be rebuilding the I-15 interchanges at Broadway and hwy 20. The current layout is cumbersome and it could be much more free flowing. But that will take a combo of federal funds with local.

It is being looked at....

I have never had a problem with the exit from NB I15 to 20; the biggest problem I have seen is southbound 20 onto SB I15. A lot of confusion for some.

The rebuild is in the planning stages and a final decision of either rebuild the current interchange or moving it to the north should be completed in the next month or so. Federal funds are being collected for this project and I believe it will be fast tracked from what I remember.
