Gets easier the more you go through it.

If you have every driven in Washington DC, then you would understand that the new interchange is a piece of cake.

Love it! Glad it's finally open.

That road is no longer a "highway", it will soon be Interstate 29.

Drove it today going to and from the landfill. It was alright, no big deal, kind of like being on a go cart track.

Surely someone could have come up with a better design! This is a mess!!!!

Awesome design! I love it.

NIGHTMARE!!! So, the flow of traffic going North/South on 29 is flowing better, however, us folks who live right off the highway just south of the new interchange have a HECK of a time trying to safely turn into our driveway without the cars behind us almost running us down, and it's even worse trying to safely pull out of our driveway onto the highway because there is no longer a stop in the flow of traffic! Also, the speed of the drivers has seemed to have increased through the area now which has made this an absolute nightmare for us residents along this area. It's VERY scary! And by the actions of the discourteous drivers behind us as we try to safely pull in or out of our driveway, it seems us residents are the bad guys. It's absolutely frustrating getting honked at or one-finger saluted when drivers have to slow down as we safely pull in our out of our driveway. Absolutely scary and nerve racking!

Pulling out onto Waterloo from Pelham Street is tricky too with the huge bushes on the left near the big white house being renovated.

Yes, that is a 'joke' apparently no one thought to remove the tree at the corner of Smith St...since they pushed Waterloo to the curb you now have to get out into Waterloo to see if traffic coming at you- didn't matter before as the street parking was on the right side of Waterloo just below Smith...

Much better than the light and it's back ups, the biggest joke is the chicane as they call it on Waterloo....I've been here since 1963 and never saw the "normal" street become a racetrack or speed zone, apparently the charging stations for the golf carts are next, LOL

I agree with majority of these comments. It may be confusing the first time, but if you can't figure out a traffic circle after a couple attempts, you probably shouldn't be on the road. More importantly, traffic is no longer backed up on 15/17 South due to the traffic light that was here previously. Good project, executed relatively quickly.

It is confusing first time through then not so bad. It will take getting used to, and the traffic flow on 29 doesn't have to stop. Did notice that vehicles going North and South appear to be going much faster than the posted speed limit of 55 mph (speed limit change in the future?).

The 24 who rated the interchange as "poor" think Trump built it..... The rest of us figured out the signage pretty easily, huh?
July 25, 2020 at 12:18 pm
Am sure you will get used to it... Sure beats sitting at those lights

It's a damned nightmare as I knew it would be when it was first proposed. Very confusing; especially the signage.

The ramp on the other side to go south isn't complete to you either have to go North the Meetze Rd (next exit) than crossover and take Southbound exit to go 29 South towards Opal etc.

For all the projected truck traffic that is a very tight 'roundabout' but not as bad as the one North of Walmart..

Looks like it will be great for traffic though
July 24, 2020 at 7:13 pm
It will take some getting used to...and why do signs say "south" to go north and "north" to go south? Someone told me this last week and I'd have thought they were fixed but when I went through today, nope, totally confusing.
