Utah State Route 154 in West Jordan (a suburb of Salt Lake City). They built a couple of overpasses to turn it into an urban freeway without expanding the footprint of the road much.

Not good the way it carves up the local neighborhoods-you can see where the local streets were severed.

That was already the case before the overpasses were constructed.

The overpasses exacerbate the issue, though.

Seems like they left gaps so pedestrians can still cut through. They blocked cars from cutting through the neighborhood and causing congestion on the arterial. Seems ok to me.

US 54/63 Jefferson City, Missouri

The Missouri River bridge at Jefferson City, Missouri. Notice the bike structure on the left. The bike span opened in 2011. The road bridges opened in 1955 and 1991.

We could use a few of those in the Buffalo area as we've had a couple cancelled expressways with intersections that have the footprint for this... but everyone thinks backwards around here.

Buffalo adopted a demand-side management approach to traffic by inducing everyone to leave the city

Colorado State Route 470

Groundbreaking Held For C-470 Express Lanes Project

Officials broke ground Wednesday on a new construction project to expand a stretch of C-470 where traffic regularly bottlenecks.

Officials are adding express lanes on the highway from Interstate 25 to Wadsworth Boulevard. They will also be realigning some curves and replacing bridges.

Construction work for the project is set to begin next month and is expected to wrap up by the spring of 2019.
Full report: http://denver.cbslocal.com/2016/08/1...lanes-project/

Reminds me of US 19 in Clearwater. I'd like to see a little more of this at very high-traffic intersections in a bunch of places.
