- A flyover ramp to improve the northbound-to-westbound traffic movement in the afternoon during peak travel time;
- Reconfigure the Jefferson Street and Paseo del Norte intersection to improve east-west traffic flow while maintaining local access;
- Bicycle and pedestrian improvements to provide a critical bike system link across I-25 and to connect existing paths to the area;
- Improved freeway access for traffic originating from the area east of the Paseo del Norte / I-25 interchange; and
