It looks like theyíre going to build a direct free flowing ramp from Loop 303 NB to I-17 NB.

That was done 10 years ago. No sign of converting that interchange into a free-flowing in at least the next 5 years (no mention in the current 5 Year Plan).

I was also on Tangerine last week. There's a milepost 34 in both directions in the Oro Valley area. How long have those mileposts been there?

The part of Tangerine Rd where that milepost is located is unsigned AZ 989.  I believe it's only ADOT-maintained west of AZ 77, over the Big Wash bridge, for about a mile and a half.  I think there's a Milepost 35 posted as well. 

AZ 989/Tangerine Rd was proposed about 20 years ago as part of a system of freeways for the Tucson area.  However, mentioning Tucson and freeways in the same sentence is a major local no-no, other than those that have already been built.

Or do what they do in Western NY - they stole the Los Angeles thing of calling everything "The".

"The 33".  "The 290".  "The 198", etc... 

I hate it :)
In Rochester everyone just says the number. 390, 490, 590, 104, etc.

That's a thing across the border in Ontario.  The 401, The 405, etc.  The toll-free portion of the Thruway is The I-90

Back when I lived in the area in the early 90s I always heard "The Mainline" when referring to the free portion of I-90

Too many rural cross roads.
What are the traffic volumes on them? How much conflict exists between US-36 and the side streets?

People already driving 70+ today with the current posting.
Raising a speed limit isnít going to cause people to drive 5-10 mph faster. Itís been proven time and time again it would bring it more in line with the 85th percentile speeds and at most speeds would go up 1-2 mph on average.

How come the highways to the capital can have a 70 mph limit, but not US-36? Politically motivated much?

From a planning and liability perspective, I am not surprised they are keeping it down.
A speed study would help determine the best speed for the road. A 70 mph limit would make it a more attractive alternative given it would boast the same speed as I-70.

Tucsonans can complain till the end of time, as far as the Downtown Links is concerned. I've driven it a couple times. It could have been so much better.

I was also on Tangerine last week. There's a milepost 34 in both directions in the Oro Valley area. How long have those mileposts been there?

Yeah, I guess Downtown Links will help some but it could have been so much better. And I guess there's been quite a few accidents already at the intersection with Broadway.
