Spaghetti Traffic

I came across some pictures of the renovations of Interstate 95 in Maryland and am appalled. The driver in me that despises being stuck in traffic can understand the perceived necessity of adding new roads to better facilitate traffic flow into and out of Washington and Baltimore but the cyclist in me looks at this monstrosity and wonders if the madness will ever end.

Here is what the interchange of I-95 and I-695 looks like now: And this is what it will look like after they add ramps for express toll lanes get added to the mix: My mind is visibly boggled. Can't we find a way for people to get from one place to another without destroying everything in their path?
