Which concept is the best and there are SO MANY choices!

I like the 3 flyover ramps but they are more expensive that's for sure.
As is often the case, the intermediate cost case (concept 2) is the most likely. For concept 3 the question is, do we really need a high-speed connection from WB 440 to EB 40? Someone can look uo traffic counts, but this seems debatable.
If there's an interchange at Jones Franklin Rd, then no. My guess for concept 3 is to remove that sharp ramp. What I don't like about concept 3 is that the flyovers are sharper compared to the other concepts. And concept 1 just looks dangerous to me, because everyone hates merging to the left of the highway.

I was thinking they should still do this alternative, I like it better than those documents that I listed above (including concept 2).

or utilize vacant land for the managed lanes?

Like this one, and is probably my favorite.

Some also suggested that it should be a double crossover merging interchange.
