Amstutz X-way, a true road to nowhere, as I am sure was posted a before I signed up here.
Should make it a bikeway, just sits there.

As someone who lives in the area it serves it's purpose well. It diverts traffic off of Sheridan Rd which becomes a residential street with several stop lights. Saves a tremendous amount of time. I've seen how badly backed up Sheridan Rd can get when the Amstutz gets closed for an event. Imagine that being everyday. So no, it should not be removed especially since it just got resurfaced back in 2019.

Looking on the Amstutz, is this the only SPUI interchange in the US with stop signs on off-ramp left turns? Never seen one before, and I'm questioning the safety of it too, crossing so many lanes of traffic diagonally.

Fundamental Theorem of AARoads - Let "y" represent the elevation above sea level in a certain area. If "Δy" between the highest and lowest values of y equals to 0, it's Illinois.

I've never had an issue with crossing there whenever I'd exit there. The sight points are decent, the light further down is often red so traffic rarely comes from that direction. A stop sign however, was added to the opposite direction on the ramp at the end of the Amstutz.
