Iíve seen the renderings of the finished project, but seeing the bridge supports being erected really gives you a sense of the scale of this thing. The flyover from downtown to I-71 south has one 80 feet (!) tall, which should be awesome in snow or ice.

Yeah it's tall even without the girders, decking or barriers up.

I was on a real tall flyover in Miami once and it wasn't fun.

I still think they should have reworked I-670 for I-71. It would have made the work on I-70 a lot more simple.

It looks nice, but compared to some of the freeway's in other states, they could have done more with the curb appeal. Peoria, Green Bay, Des Moines and Denver have especially nice aesthetics. I like Peoria and Denver the best.
