It's one of those aspects of life that you see practically every day, but don't take the time to ask the question "why?". It's the rhyme and reason behind why our highways have the numbers they do including Highway 61, 172, 70, etc.
I have never seen these "Partial Cloverleaf Interchanges" before in my life, and they are being proposed for an interchange off of one of the biggest highways in Illinois. Here is a video I found explaining how they work.
I absolutely despise getting involved in politics and I don't plan to start now. However, I need to dive into a touchy topic that I've heard brought up constantly again over the past few weeks. Is it finally time for Hannibal's much-debated Highway 61 bypass?
