I know this goes against popular opinion on RTH, but Gary' Moore's reply looks quite sensible. A full blown study doesn't need to be carried out for every project, especially when good engineering judgement shows the obvious solution. The condition of the bridge required a fairly short term solution, and what was done was that solution. Putting a slightly narrower deck on would save very little money. He's right in saying that a high level of safety exists there with the grade separation, it seems very logical to keep that configuration for the given traffic volumes. $2.3 million for a new deck and piers is quite reasonable...changing over to an at-grade intersection would most certainly cost more, and result in a less efficient and less safe situation.
