You are not understanding me. I did not say that the retailers asked for the interchange nor that it will improve direct access to their stores. My point is that the future traffic increases - projections upon which the importance of this upgrade are presumably based on - will be driven largely by retail development. That the development is big-box is beside the point - but it is still reality. If it was a mall going there, or a casino, I'd have the same things to say. But you can see with your own eyes that all development on the horizon within a reasonable distance from that intersection is single storey retail.

So I will say again: the interchange may not be specifically meant to service these parking lots - but the traffic being driven by the retail developments is the main reason the interchange is needed.
no clever signoff.
