This is a problem in many places around MoCo. It's hard to make walkable neighborhoods around 10-lane highways. I would suggest tunnels, because those roads are not designed with peds in mind. 2 1/2 minute waits are going to be pretty standard to cross. However, tunnels can be sketchy. Maybe a series of islands to break up the highway at junctions like this and calm traffic? Enlarged crosswalks, more plantings (very useful in the summer when you can catch the sun in the time it takes to cross these traffic sewers!). Different color of pavement approaching the intersection to provide a visual cue to drivers to expect pedestrians.
