There appears to be a lot of crashes at this interchange. I wonder if KDOT will ever consider rebuilding it to change the configuration of the on and off ramps?

You might be right Keith…maybe something should be done. Before they blow a bunch of money trying to make it idiot proof, how about asking the ones that have a problem using it make some changes? Things like paying attention? yield?….using their signals when exiting or entering?….maybe even use a little common courtesy and exercise some road manners instead of their middle finger?
It seems like it’s “every man for themselves” ….gimme gimme gimme…sigh.
