    Museum of ridiculous highway design

    Sometimes aesthetic is never functional. Do they still exist now? Or, any other existing replica?

    I-94 interchange has been replaced with a SPUI, freeing up land on both sides for red-velopment.

    US-23 at Lee Rd, Has been made mor complicated with the introduction of large strip malls and traffic circles.

    US-23 at Grand River/I-96 freeway still looks like that, a neighborhood in the middle of a freeway interchange! I can imagine it gets loud there!
