It's too bad they seem to have captured them at such low resolution. They're basically repeated stills, so a higher quality scan would probably pull out a decent level of detail.

I see a good number of at grade intersections on I-15 (Murphy Rd)! I also noticed a lack of shoulder stripes on the freeway as well.

SR 15 and I-15 were well-marked on the roadway segments during that timeframe. The I-15 portion seemed to have some at-grade intersections; I wasn't sure if I-15 was signed on the roadway prior to it reaching full freeway standards, so the video answers that question. Thank you for posting!
