Route 20-McLean work hard to fathom

Is this what we are getting for our money? Is this what is being done to the Route 20 and McLean intersection? What is this? It makes no sense to do this for such a simple correction.

All that needs to be done to the intersection is to eliminate the lights that stop traffic under the bridge. Put in sensors to control the lights for better flow. They should make the lights stop traffic exiting at the off ramps and on McLean on the main road only. By not letting traffic stop under the bridge, it will allow traffic to move faster along with the sensors.

Also all that needs to be done to McLean's exit is to widen the exit ramp to three or four lanes. The exact same thing that was done at Randall Road's Exit just a few miles up the road.

Why are we wasting money for this mess? We should demand a review of this project and give the people of this state a break in the wasteful spending that benefits who?
