It's about time they do something about this horrendous interchange. The roads leading into the exit and around the cloverleaf are terrible as well as the Eastbound side. Too many patchwork, cracks and potholes. This intersection has been neglected for far too long. The design for these exits were not designed for the sheer volume of vehicles going through here.

237-middlefield does not have cloverleaf, those only exist further north at 101 and south at 85. Once of the plans I saw for this spot was a "diverging diamond" setup.

I always regret taking S Whisman to 237 West at rush hour. You hit this wall of cars lined up on 237 waiting to go on 85S. Trying to merge through this wall and into the fast moving traffic on 237 is treacherous. Will this LinkedIn development improve this?
