How did FHWA sign off on removing two of the ramps at I-90 and I-77? They seem to throw a shitfit about incomplete interchanges.They really weren't needed they were hardly ever used. I-490 is a shorter connector anyways.
And right now, if somebody *really* wanted to Access I-77 from I-90 East, they would just exit at SR-14/Orange Ave., and follow it down to East 30th where a ramp will take you right onto I-77. Maybe adds up to 3 extra minutes.
Now accessing I-90 West from I-77 is a bit trickier, but again its only a 2-3 minute detour using E. 18th to E. 9th, Orange/Ontario to E.9th, or E. 9th to Ontario -- all via Carnegie.
Either way, the freeway is always in sight right next to you so those are now pretty much Breezewood movements.
