Maybe they should build a new shopping mall there?
That is sure to bring traffic?

These are near my in laws' house, and I had no idea they weren't active overpasses.

I love urban archaeology.

There are a lot of fascinating abandoned places out there.
This was not really one of them.

It is kinda cool, you can see on Google earth the route it was going to take, and where they were going to splice it into the other highway, the ramps are still there.  Looks like they were planning on splicing a 3rd route into it as well.

Where it would have connected to 278

The likely route (Yellow)... with what looked to me like a spike joining from the SW.  (orange)
