What's the rationale behind the traffic oval? That just looks like a spectacular traffic jam and waste of space.

That said, the existing bridge is horrible for pedestrians and cyclists. I'm not sure if a retrofit/repair can fix that, or if the bridge could support the weight of wider sidewalks.

I say build a traditional freeway interchange, and try to make it as small and unobtrusive as possible. (The 11th St Bridge did an OK job of this, but missed some key opportunities, and is a huge land hog)
