I was very impressed with the presentation and the maps. I like the overall approach to the project.
I do wonder why the Nicholson/Highland exit doesn’t include Washington Street and completely do away with the Washington street exit as it exists or is planned. Washington Street is only 6 blocks down Highland Road. If the Washington Street exit has to remain, there appears to be enough shoulder available to move the split lane for the exit around the curve farther west, closer to the bridge.
Thanks for the meeting and information,

Multiple alternatives, similar to the ones suggested, were considered in the Stage 0 Feasibility Study and did not move into the Stage 1 study due to high environmental, cost, or traffic serviceability impacts.
