Elevate the highway

It would seem to make sense to build a raised highway above Highway 97 with off ramps dropping down to main intersections, and conversely up ramps to join the highway.

There would be no need for traffic lights, so congestion should be eased.

Furthermore, part of the existing roadway at ground level (underneath the raised highway) could possibly be utilized for a light rail transit system.

This type of solution has been utilized in many cities.

Due to the limited space to build new roads, “going up” would seem to be our best option for the entire length of Harvey Avenue.
